Haha, it gets easier! I think it's a good way to connect and get feedback on your work, I found my very first customer via Instagram, it helped me realise I can make money doing something I actually enjoy, creating logos and album art etc.
Yes. Basically you can search for different artists or different hash tags for example #graphicdesign #logodesigner.. And it will bring up all the related posts you can get inspiration from, comment and like. You can also upload your own work using hash tags to reach a wider audience.
I'd say the only bad side is that people can copy your work, but atm I'm struggling getting my work out there so this is an option I have chosen.
Yes I'm just checking out your work, loving it! The quality is amazing.
I believe Instagram and other social media's can have such a big impact on everything nowadays. You can reach out to a wider audience, people on the other side of the world in seconds. I hope it brings your lots of success!
