Instagram first revealed their New Design Account at Milan Design Week. Since then, they have managed to gain thousand of followers with no signs of stopping. Instagram itself has a staggering 800 million active users. Which means that we can hopefully expect to see some pretty impressive, out-of-the-box type designs.
‘By highlighting creators from across disciplines, we hope to showcase the evolving relationship between technology and traditional design,’ Ian Spalter, head of design explains. ‘We’re just getting started, and we’re looking forward to learning how we can be a useful and supportive part of the community.’
This is great news for designers that share their stuff on the popular photo-sharing social media site. While not everyone will be featured on the New Design Account, it helps shed a lot of much needed light on the world of design. So, get your most creative brain cells pumping and start showing off what you’ve got!
