It’s likely you’re posting more regularly on your Instagram stories than your own feed, but just because they’re immediate and last for only 24 hours, it doesn’t mean your stories need to be plain and generic.
The feature should be a vessel for you to show off your artistic side, and exposing followers to more visually-aesthetic content will have them anticipating quality work from you.
While Instagram’s story tools seem limited, you can expand their possibilities with a little creativity. Take it from YouTuber Nathalie Muñoz, who has put together 10 ways to give your Instagram stories a glow-up without having to exit the app.
Muñoz plays around with Instagram’s available fonts, combining serifs and sans-serifs for contrast, stacking or curving text to create dimension, giving them rainbow gradients, and more. You can also make your handwritten text look better by opting for the highlighter tool instead of the default pen tool.
Creators might notably enjoy a couple of tricks where the YouTuber demonstrates how to tease new posts.
The tutorial proves that there’s so much more you can achieve from Instagram’s seemingly restricted toolbox. After this, you might develop your own style to enamor your followers with.
1. Foggy effect
2. Displaying days of the week
3. Curved text
4. Boxed letters
5. Layered 3D text
6. Travel stories
