Planning a Cohesive Instagram Aesthetic

Is it just me or is there no better feeling than when you capture a photo, by chance, that totally matches your Instagram aesthetic? Or when you come across an account on social media whose content looks incredible together. You know, those Instagram accounts whose pictures all perfectly match, the one's that you hope to emulate through your brand. But how is it possible to only post pictures that go together? The truth is, it's a lot easier than it sounds! 

1. Find Your Colors Scheme

When first developing your branding, any graphic designer will often recommend that your logo is paired with a set of brand colors. These brand colors will be used to make sure that your website and content all have the same appearance. 


2. Define Your Brand Fonts

Choosing a heading font, sub heading font, and body text font that is fluent throughout your brand will ensure that any text in your content, such as quotes or informational pictures, all compliment eachother.

3. Create a Mood Board

Creating a visual board of pictures that all emulate the color and theme that your brand is going for will help you to compare future content to make sure everything matches.


Once you have a visual road map of the standards that you'd like your brand to adhere to, planning, creating, and capturing content will feel so much easier. If you need a better outline, or some more guidance, RISE Creative will be releasing a Creative Branding Guide as a resource for you to completely align your vision for the year and start the year with great focus.
