I first thought Instagram was to share photos with friends and family but I realized my friends and family take horrible photos haha. I can see most of them in person so keeping up with the details isn’t important. As a growing artist, I need to be more deliberate with inspiration. I made my feed public and deleted photos of my personal life, unfollowed the noise and followed about a hundred graphic designers, typography artist, creative directors and other artist. Now I’m getting followers who are like minded, sharing ideas and connecting with a new community.
I’m saving screen shots and archiving ideas, creating my own private library of inspiration. As a video director, I think in motion and story so seeing what other creatives are working on encourages me to create my own unique ideas and share them.
Is there a platform you use to gather new ideas?
