Curious, do any of you post design work to Instagram? Has that lead to any project work for you?
I suspect it might work for illustrators and photographers but hardly for web designers/UX/UI designers; and that it's very correlated with posting actual work. I just post random photos so of course I don't get design work through IG.
I personally never got any, but I a lot of people does.
You just need to post the best of your work, and keep engaging with the comments and people in Instagram.
Best of luck Kyle!
I think it depends on what kind of design you do and who are your followers. I agree with Johan that illustrators and photographers can get (and I know those who do) clients through Instagram, but for others it might be a little bit harder. Anyway it doesn't take that much time, why not to try for several months and see how it goes.
I don't use instagram, but i can say i got couple of clients from Pinterest, if you can believe that :). They searched me from the images other people posted with my work.
Highly recommend Instagram. I don't have many followers and usually post random shots of the stuff I currently work on. From beginning of October until now, two organizations contacted me to work on their projects.
