Instagram feeds have much to offer when it comes to creativity.
To attract new followers it’s a must to show off your A-game and the strong competition has lead to some mind-blowing and truly innovative instagram feed and profile ideas. Looking at the best of the best is always beneficial, especially to get inspired and spice up your own personal or business Instagram feed.
Instagram has over 800 millions active users every month. A strong, positive presence on Instagram can become extremely effective marketing for your business.
Let’s look at 8 of our hand picked creative Instagram feeds for 2018.
Use of colour in your instagram theme
An interesting example by @oakandink. Their instagram feed is inspired by People and The Pantone Swatch book. The Melborne based artist and photographer is making his way through the Pantone colours to creatively theme his posts.
To promote their own design products @getblvck‘s bio reads ‘Black is more than a colour, it’s a lifestyle’. All their posts focus on the colour Black and are visually pleasing which results in great engagement with instagram users and potential customers.
Creative use of the Grid
Online recipe blog @reynoldskitchens have split their grid into a huge dining room table with each post displaying an individual dish. Each individual post includes links through to their website for the recipe. A very well planned instagram feed accompanied by some tricky photography work, possibly our favourite instagram feed.
@wearewildbloom‘s posts feed into each other like an instagram collage, each post looks great individually and also creates a full image on the profile view. We really like the minimal design and feel of their instagram collage.
Minimalism and Seasonal/Consistent Filters
@minibasic‘s instagram feed takes a very clean and minimal approach to match their brand image of basic simple children’s clothing. They use very subtle changes in colour dependent on what season it is.
@mattcumps‘s posts are minimal but stick to a bright nostalgic theme. His posts are very vibrant on the eye and use consistent neon bright colours throughout.
Planned Instagram Grid Posts
If you are also looking for some logo design inspiration @dailylogochallenge‘s instagram feed uses light and dark posts to mix their grid up, planning your posts can really boost the look of your instagram feed.
The instagram planning app @preview.app use the same technique as daily logo challenge’s, we will go into more detail below how you can plan your social media posts effectively using their free instagram planning app below.
