So...Instagram launched its latest feature called: IGTV. What is it? It's a new update where you will be able to watch long-form and also vertical videos from your favourite creators. What's interesting is that Instagram is pushing creators to actually use it, it's almost the same feel we all had when we were first introduced to Vine. One feature where Instagram could really shine is the fact that the videos that you are filming or uploading can be one hour long. That's just crazy!
Let's start this long Weekend for some of us with a very cool 365 days Instagram project by Christian Pietrzok. It's a letter a day for his 2017 daily project, it's always a good challenge for sure. I tried once and it's not easy! Hat's off to Christian to explore so many different styles. Let's give him some love and it's always inspiring to follow this kind of challenge as a designer, artist or even exploring other mediums like photography for example.
What is Plotagraph? You gotta play with one of their animations to fully understand the concept behind. It looks like a combination of a lopping motion and a cinemagraph?! I am not even sure if it is properly interpreted. But give it a look because, with a beautiful image or concept, the result is simply stunning. We are taking the look at the work of @javografo on Instagram. Being an ambassador of Plotagraph, you will possibly fell in love with his use of this tool. I wished he could have used his own images but it's pretty well credited. Props!
We have a little announcement for you guys, it's nothing big but good enough to settle for the future. It has been some kind of a debate over ABDZ (for months now) on the use of our Instagram accounts. Now we have two accounts (@abduzeedo & @abduzeedos) and we have been juggling about which one should be our main account for features, stories, giveaways and etc. From now on let's go with @abduzeedo.
Personal Projects. Side-Projects. Whatever how you wanna call it. In my mind, it should be part of your journey/career to always keep a balance in your work and life. Whatever it is a freelance project or completely personal, the fact that you are making something else out of the workspace. We never know where this project could end up going towards your path. On Abduzeedo, we do love personal projects! And we would love to share the work from Turgay Mutlay and his illustrative work.
There was a time, not too long ago where I was focusing my free time on my hand-lettering skills. As easy as it seems, it was a hard challenge. I should get my hands back at this medium but right now I am focusing my time on photography. But if you are into lettering or a beginner, and you are looking for artists to follow on Instagram. It's a great to one, get inspired.
We've been waiting for this to happen for a very long time and today Instagram is taking everyone by a storm with this gorgeous redesign. It's not only a rebrand of the logo but also the entire line of products including Boomerang, Layout and Hyperlapse. On top of that, they also did a redesign of their beloved app as well by adding a much simpler look/approach with a Black & White UI. Whatever you're a fan or not of this design, I just love how big brand like Instagram take such a big step at their rebrand and it's quite fun to observe.
