The scene: You’ve been sitting at your desk, wringing your hands for two hours. You’ve written and rewritten that first draft more times than should be allowed, but the clock is ticking. You’ve hit the creative wall and you need inspiration – fast.
The next time you find yourself in this predicament, take a break, pull out your phone and peruse Instagram – one of my favorite inspiration stations. Recently, I polled a couple of the brilliant minds of our Creative Team to see who they love keeping up with on Insta. From local museums to globally renowned photographers, here are a few of the accounts our team looks to for inspiration.
