How to create an aesthetic Instagram profile


As stated, to create a Instagram aesthetic profile it is necessary to implement a design strategy, which consists first of all in identifying the graphic style and colors to be used.

Once this is done, you need to create themed content with the chosen style and design your own Feed, as well as other sections of the Instagram profile, maintaining a homogeneity from a visual point of view. Read on to learn more.

Draw inspiration from other people’s profiles

The first thing you need to do for create an Instagram aesthetic profile is to choose the graphic style you want to use on your profile.

As mentioned, in fact, the aesthetic style is, generically speaking, a style that has a strong reference to the 80s and to everything that is considered retro; however, this does not necessarily mean that this is the exact style you need to use for your Instagram profile, as there are other very popular aesthetic styles, such asart hoe and the vintage.

In this regard, I suggest you start by looking at the profiles of other users – even on social networks other than Instagram, for example Pinterest and Tumblr – to search for images made in the main aesthetic styles, in order to get an idea of the most popular content of this type.

To search on Instagram, click on the icon magnifying glass located at the bottom, if you are using the smartphone app, while if you are acting as a PC, refer to text field located at the top.

Now, in both cases, type hashtag like #aesthetic, #aesthetic, #arthoe #arthoeaestetich #arthoefashion or again #vintage. These are some examples of the search terms you can use to find the right inspiration.

You can also use the same hashtags on Pinterest, Tumblr, and other platforms that involve sharing photos and videos. By doing so, you will surely find inspiration for your next content.

Identify the colors of your profile

Another piece of advice I want to give you, to help you create an Instagram aesthetic profile, is the one related to the identification of the color palette on which to base your content.

Style aestheticin fact, it is usually composed of a series of colors ranging from shades of light blue / blue to those of magenta / purple. Also often used are colors that are inspired by the sunset, such as shades ranging from yellow to the Red.

Therefore, to create a stylistic coherence, it is important to choose one or more color palettes to use as the predominant colors within your content published on Instagram.

To help you do this, you can do a Google image search by typing terms like “Vaporwave aesthetic color palette”or you can use websites like Color-Hex: an online service that provides color code information, in hexadecimal format (Hex) or in that RGB.

To search for one or more aesthetic palettes on the website in question, link to the section Color Palettes and, in the search engine located at the top, type terms such as aesthetic or vaporwave. Then, among the search results that are shown to you, click on the color palette of your choice, to see all the colors that are part of it and the related codes HEX And RGB.

There are also apps for smartphones / tablets that perform similar functions, such as for example Color Palette for Android or Pantone Studio for iOS / iPadOS.

Edit photos and videos

After choosing the style and colors to use for your photos and videos, the time has come to modify the content in question, through the use of special apps.

If you want to apply vintage effects to yours phototo make sure that they reflect the aesthetic style as much as possible, I suggest you use specific apps such as Huji Cam (Android/iOS / iPadOS), Vintage Cam for Android or 1967 for iOS / iPadOSwhich have several predefined filters that allow you to “age” the photos.

For the modification of the video using predefined retro-style presets, on the other hand, I suggest you use editing apps like Rarevision VHS Camcorder Lite (Android/iOS / iPadOS) or VHS Camrecorder (Android And iOS / iPadOS), which apply a VHS-style “image noise” effect to imported movies.

Other more general apps you can employ are the video editor InShot for Android And iOS / iPadOS (a popular video editing tool) and photo editor Snapseed by Google (Android/iOS / iPadOS). You can use them to apply filters vintage or back to your content or to “manually” change parameters such as brightness, contrast, color, tint, saturation, HSL or effect film grain.

You can choose to publish your photos and / or videos as normal using the Instagramor implement a more careful publication strategy, by organizing the design of yours Feed.

In the latter case, some app to organize Instagramwhich are used to manage your profile through the publication of content ordered in a certain way and / or programmed.

Among these, I point out Preview: Planner for Android And iOS / iPadOS, Plann + for Android And iOS / iPadOS And Planoly for Android And iOS / iPadOS which offer the possibility of organizing the publication of content on your Instagram profile in advance, through the creation of a publication plan.

Therefore, use these apps by connecting your Instagram account and uploading a series of photos or videos that you would like to publish, in order to evaluate, overall, the best position in the Feed for each of these.
