Instagram has become a finely curated destination for gorgeous photos, videos, and visual content that all clamor for the best Likes and comments. It’s as if the urge to visit a modern art museum can now be satisfied from the convenience of our own homes — or bus seats, or lunch breaks.
That is, if you follow the right people. As social media generally offer a platform for individuals to become brands, so it goes for the artists and designers who have found Instagram to be a method of constructing a miniature, digital art gallery — a social portfolio, if you will.
But to help you narrow your search, we’ve done a bit of our own curation of the best Instagram accounts to follow for design inspiration. We’ve transgressed the list down by category: illustration, graphic design, pop art and installation, colouring palettes, street art, photography, typography, and calligraphy — although, you might notice that some of the run below could fall onto more than one listing. notice some of the performance of their duties could fall into a number of different lists.
Check out how these artists are sharing their work with the world — we’re sure you’ll find them as inspiring as we do.
