At Neiter Creative we’re constantly looking for inspiration. It can come from all kinds of places but one of our favorite sources is Instagram. Instagram has become a magical place where creatives can share their work + process, at the same time as connecting with peers + clients. Designers and design clients alike can benefit from following creatives online. You’ll see what you like and what don’t like. You’ll learn what your “taste” is.
We follow tons of design Instagram accounts, here’s a list of our favorites:
3. Logo Inspiration
Logo inspiration can vary as far as style but some accounts that inspire us include @WhiteSpaceMag and @HoodzpahDesign. White Space Mag is a curated account of trendy but elegant designs. Hoodzpah on the other hand is a woman-run studio we love from California. Their work is always a refreshing throwback.
4. Social Media Inspiration
Social media accounts can serve as an extension of your brand. Keeping them pretty can be hard, but these people know how to do it right. For social media inspiration we look to @CreateCultivate and @ItsNiceThat
4. The Design Process
One of our all time favorite things on Instagram is the weekly video post from @NYTMag where they show the design process for their cover! Usually the video is narrated by the New York Times Magazine Editor-In-Chief and Design Director. The videos show how much thought and time goes into something (like a magazine cover) that you might see daily and not even question.
