Editorial Style Instagram Posts

One of my favorite things to do in regards to Art & Design is create beautiful photography style / editorial style Instagram posts for a more visually pleasing Instagram feed.

I got the idea from reading different publications in Fader Magazine, Paper Magazine as well as, my all time favorite publication, Complex Magazine.

The idea of these posts is to a more professional + cohesive look to my Instagram posts such as this one. IMG_4257

The photos taken in this specific post were taken by me on my Canon T5i rebel with a 18-135mm kit lens. To create this look I edited the photos included with Adobe Lightroom and 2 mobile iPhone apps called VSCO Cam and Pics art which are extremely simple to use and navigate to create these types of posts.

The posts are so visually pleasing that you could even put these on your portfolio website and not just for personal use for social media, here is another example.


The formal side of editorial design revolves around the aspect of typography, layout as well as photography. That relates more directly to newspapers, magazines more business style types of design.

Here is my last post to show:



It’s Finally Done!

After much time and consideration I finally have come super close to finishing my website/blog (CUE APPLAUSE) where I will post up to 3 times a week about graphic design, commissions, music, culture, fashion and plenty other things that I’m interested in.

It won’t be boring, I promise guys. I’ve realized that there are no female + black bloggers or social media influencers that are posting the type of content I would like to see so I decided to create it myself.

Feel free to use the keep in touch menu to…you know..keep in touch, I’d love to hear from you guys and hear any suggestions you might have for me on the content that I’m posting.

Commission are open too by the way, I’ll make a separate post about rates, disclaimers and such.
