Inspirational Instagram accounts to inspire any visual designers

In the past couple of years, I have fallen in love with the world of graphics and visual design.

I find myself gravitating towards any creative modules that involve design and learning new skills at university. Instagram is a great way to discover inspiration for new designs because you can see what other designers are creating to help gather new ideas and concepts.

There are some great design pages on Instagram that showcase some amazing designers with different styles techniques. Here are some to give you your daily dose of inspiration.

@Picame

Picame is an Instagram page which—along with its website and digital magazine—promotes other visual artists from around the world. Considered a point of reference in Italian publishing, this digital magazine of creativity and visual arts reaches an audience of over 350,000 readers.
