Seven Instagram Accounts For The Weekend

Happy Friday! Need some inspiration for a weekend project? Here are seven Instagram accounts I turn to when I need some fresh thinking from the wider lens of design.


@charlottelovely

If you are a play-with-your-food kind of person, or if you just need a smile today, stylist Charlotte Lovely’s account is for you. Calling her work “silly” might sound like a backhanded compliment, but when I say “silly” here I mean it in the most sincere and artful meaning of the word.


@unasuntolamentable

If, like me, you are most moved by films wherein a single, perfectly composed shot says more than any scripted word could, you have to follow @unasuntolamentable. There you’ll find the “fleeting moment” beauty of cinema captured, across every and all genres, in two perfectly paired stills.


@lettersofnewyork

Typography nerds, urbanists and history fans unite at Letters of New York, which is exactly what it claims to be: glimpses into the nooks and crannies of the city through the lens of letters in everyday signage.


@adigoodrich

A set designer with a particular eye for all things geometric, colorful, her spaces are always somehow very real and very fake, toeing the line between interior design and high-art installation.


@swissposters

I don’t think there is much that needs to be said here. You’re being that annoying contrarian at the party if you disapprove of Swiss graphic design, and here it is: what is happening now “from St. Gallen to Geneva, Swiss graphic design in the streets of Switzerland.”


@conformi_

This account is everything that is lovely about the phrase, “The world can be funny like that sometimes.” The collection of pairs from @conformi_ is like a little game for the eyes.


@playground.paris

I discovered design studio Playground while I was in Paris. I love its colorful work, which is heavy on clever, simple animation.

Have a great weekend, guys – @juleeclip
