Instagram Feed Aesthetic: Holographic

Since the feeds that I’ve been posting here on the site have been very successful and pumped on Pinterest, I decided to do a weekly post always presenting a new aesthetic. What do you think?

In addition to the feed itself, I’ll include some images that fit the proposal (all free, via Unsplash and edited to match) + some little tips on how to achieve the visual unity between the elements and, of course, get there.

I know how much you guys love pretty, organized and unique Instagram feeds, and you really want to have your own original design. So I want to help you achieve this goal. Ask me in the comments here if you have any doubts, and I will be very happy to answer them all.

This first feed I’m posting has a holographic footprint.

Update —– after I designed this feed, Taylor Swift used a similar aesthetic for a while, promoting her single “Me” and her album “Lover”. It’s great inspiration too, so take a look:

Sooo pretty, right? I hope she found my feed suggestion on Pinterest and got inspired by it. Hahahah a girl can dream! —– end of update.

Anyway, here’s the theme!

This is not an easy aesthetic to maintain, requires the use of apps, or a lot of photoshop. I know that not everyone has this disposition / time / skill. But the result is incredible, and certainly worth it. Especially if you love the whole fantastic unicorn rainbow glittery shiny and holographic theme.

Click here to download the png that I used to give the holographic effect in almost all the photos of this feed. I made a quick video to show you how to do it:

* If you feel that the image has been washed away, I suggest you select the layers, flatten it, then go to Settings / Brightness and Contrast, and decrease the brightness a bit and increase the contrast 😉

Below are some images to use as a respite in your feed, or on that uninspired day:

Images to use in your holographic feed

🔮 Tip – The holographic effect usually stands out more in images with little contrast. So try to fade the darkest part of the photo, especially the black ones. Apps always offer this option, even Instagram itself has this function in the editing tools.

I hope you enjoyed today’s feed, sweeties!
