The purpose of this project is to find one or more designers to create high-quality designs around the substance of the posts for an Instagram (IG) page. Ideally, we would work together on an ongoing basis based on your availability.
This is the page: [login to view URL]
"Dose of Provocation" as an IG page will feature a regular stream ("dose") of powerful, thought provoking ideas, quotes, and wisdom from great minds, ancient and modern.
Its followers/subscribers won't always agree with posts, and occasionally may even find themselves unnerved. If that's the case, the post was successful. To grow, we must all be willing to entertain ideas and truths no matter how uncomfortable they are and learn from them objectively.
The target audience of the IG Page will be those that are interested in self-help/self-development, daily motivation, philosophy, truth seekers, stoics, etc. In essence, anyone that loves thinking abstractly, being challenged, objectivity, and doesn't shy away from provocation of ideas.
So, I'm aiming for designs around the content that in themselves will be "striking"/"jarring" in a way to reflect the "striking"/"jarring" and uncomfortable nature of the sort of ideas that will be posted. But to be honest, that's all a "nice to have" aspiration. The "must have" purpose of this brief, is really to just find someone who can make great designs period. Otherwise, without finding someone to do so, I'll be posting just quotes/ideas without much of a design, and that's not very compelling/catchy/interesting.
To give you an example of what I'm talking about, here are some examples of other pages that do something similar:
Example1: [login to view URL]
Example 2: [login to view URL]
Example 3: [login to view URL]
Example 4: [login to view URL]
Example 5: [login to view URL]
Example 6: [login to view URL]
Etc. etc. There's hundreds of them.... you get the idea!
I want to do something similar. So what I'm looking to do is maybe put out anywhere between 2-4 posts/week once it gets rolling eventually. But, baby steps first...
To get us started on this project, here are some example famous quotes that I would love to see designed (as they will be the first dozen or so to be posted on the new page):
