The New York Instagram account for colour and textiles inspiration
By WGSN Insider

The perfect afternoon visual pit stop, get to know the colourful Instagram account that will inspire.

Jul 20, 2016


As a creative, taking regular breaks and feasting your eyes on some visual inspiration is key. So at WGSN we like to scour the digital and social media sphere to find visuals that are truly exciting. Our latest discovery is native New Yorker Daniel Reynolds’ Instagram, which celebrates often overlooked colourful corners of the city.

The Instagram is packed full of colour inspiration, as well as highlighting interesting surfaces, textiles and materials, from wooden trash discarded on street corners to towering office blocks. Through considered cropping, focus is drawn to abstract viewpoints and the vibrancy of urban life. Enjoy the colour blocking, highly tactile textiles and interesting compositions in architecture. We hope it’s the perfect lunchbreak inspiration.
