If you are anything like me, Instagram can quickly suck you in (where did that last hour go, right?!) with all of the beautiful graphics, motivational quotes and inspiring captions. For me, my day job is as a graphic designer, so I am constantly looking through Instagram to keep me inspired and also to keep up on trends within the different industries my clients work in – and my own!
There are many ways to inspire creativity, but one of my ways is checking out what my favorite brands and businesses are up to and I find that the quickest way to do this is through their Insta feed. This is often where you get to see behind the scenes content that you might not get on their website or other social media profiles.
Below are my current favorite Instagram accounts to follow. Be sure to check out the other accounts featured in this series.
Fashionably Frank Marketing is a millennial–driven digital marketing agency that serves up honest advice for entrepreneurs. Her Insta feed delivers thoughtful quotes, tips and strategies for both your life and your business goals. The overall aesthetic is clean and somewhat cozy, making it feel personal and relatable. Her images are as gorgeous as her captions are helpful!
Hanmade, a boutique design studio, run by Hanna Ray, offers up print, brand and web design services. As a designer myself, I love scrolling through other designers Insta feeds for inspiration, and Hanmade is always one of my go–tos. Her simple, elegant design style is a must–see! She posts inside glances at projects she has/is working on, such as this mark and these business cards. Plus, I love the cute, quirky sayings she posts every once in a while.
