You may have asked yourself, why should I use stock images? Here’s a simple answer–exposure. Forbes reports that using stock images to accompany blogs, articles, or webpages increases your chances of views by 94 percent. That’s nine more people for every one person who is looking at at your content without images. Graphics from YouWorkForThem are… Read More
Take a moment to picture your favorite blogs. No matter the topic, they all have something in common that makes them pop and sparkle–incredible images. A blog can employ the most well-written, accurate text in the world, and it will fall flat without images–truly worth their weight in thousands of words. However, not every foray… Read More
Buamai was conceived by our founder & creative director Michael Paul Young in 2008 as an online repository for unique or inspirational found images (pre-Pinterest).

My latest side project for Graphic Designers and creatives is called Buamai. The project is only few months old but we already have 3000 images blogged.

Images found on our site are mainly of Graphic Design, Art and Architecture interest but with some random, strange images thrown in for variety. Use our website to cure boredom, find talented artists or for gathering inspiration.
