8 Instagram Accounts You Need to Follow for Design Inspiration

Design ideas don't typically come out of nowhere—they start with an inspiration. Chances are, you're being influenced by everything you see. Whether it's an intriguing blog, an artsy magazine or even just walking down the street, good designers pull motivation from a variety of sources.

One important and effective way to find design inspiration is to follow other designers and artists whose creativity you admire. These 8 Instagram accounts will give you a great starting place to spark your creativity.

Stefan Sagmeister is an interesting character. This Austrian designer goes where the wind blows him—both in life and in his creative efforts—using his travels to inform his creativity in a way that's a wonder to behold. He is not beholden to one style of design and often blurs the line between art and design.

Looking at these accounts and others on a regular basis will increase your appreciation for all design styles. Of course, you don't want to copy them exactly. Instead, let your own creativity shine through. Who knows? One day you might find your own account on a featured list. Solid creative inspiration can be hard to come by. Following the work of other designers who are successfully creating the type of content you want to produce is a great way to spark your imagination and increase your clients' satisfaction.
