Posted: September 4, 2020

You will find tons of wonderful graphic designers on Instagram all showcasing their cool design. Here are the 10 WOW graphic designers on Instagram ones of the lot whose Instagram feed would inspire you.

As the celebrated American graphic designer, Milton Glaser, said, “There are three responses to a piece of design – yes, no, and WOW! Wow is the one to aim for.”

‘Graphic design’ has gained great popularity in recent times although it has been prevailing since the origin of human existence, only sans the name. Quite naturally, some people like the graphic designer David Carson, have gone as far as saying that “Graphic design will save the world right after rock and roll does.”

Simply put, graphic design is anything that combines text and pictures using typography, photography, and illustration for advertisements, magazines, books, or more recently, even for the web.

Design is where science and art break even. And so, when the science in the form of technology is moving forward to newer platforms like Instagram, how could art in the form of design not catch up?

You will find tons of wonderful graphic designers on Instagram all showcasing their cool designs but not all of them will elicit a WOW kind of response from you.
