One of the most amazing things around this community, is just how many inspiring and creative people are out there. I've been asked a lot where i get my inspiration from, and although it is from small daily things, to big breathtaking moments, i've never really got the chance to share the people i look up to. The people who got me started five years ago, who inspire me today.
Back when i was taking my first steps, it was all about finding virtual mentors. It's really awesome to have someone to look up to and learn from. Not that i got to actual talk to someone, as i was super shy. One thing i learned though is that you should never let your awe communicating with people that inspire you. Be confident.
Anyways, i wanted to take the time today and make a list with my virtual mentors. Because they're awesome, and deserve a shout out!
PHOTOGRAPHY / INSTAGRAM
these people blow my mind when it comes to capturing the beautiful things in this world. And when i find myself uninspired to post on instgram, they definitely make me go out and chase moments with my camera.
Ravivora Ravi's feed, feels like a fairytale. Plus i've been doing the #dotheravivora on every picture i'm at.
Local_Milk Beth, has the most honest feed. She really captures those small moments in her life, and it just really looks magical.
Melissa Sonico Her style, amazeballs.
Olivia Thebaut Makes me wanna dive into her feed and live her beautiful life.
Emilie Ristevski Got no idea how she does that, but there's just so much beauty, detail and crispness on her images.
Julia Kostreva Most awesome and inspiring designer i've ever known.
Amanda Jane Jones The one who gives me that thirst for a bit of modern vintage in my style.
Breanna Rose Bri, was the one that i admired behind my tiny computer when i was trying to figure out what to do with myself. Loved her ever since i saw her beautiful logos.
Cassie of Veda House, always blows my mind. The cleanliness, the texture, love it all.
ILLUSTRATORS / LETTERERS
Asia Pietrzyk She gives me the inspiration to ditch that black and white and minimal! Obviously a major inspiration on my designs, i love the quirkiness and simplicity in her style. Simply makes me happy.
Soleil Ignacio I've been lucky to know Soleil for some time now, and she never stops to amaze me with her personal style. There's no way you wouldn't recognise here beautiful illustrations.
Ricardo Gonzalez I wanna be him when i grow up. No words, this guy, is out this world. Inspires me to letter more carefully, and really teach my hand to be stable. Plus he loves gold as much as i do!
Madelynn Furlong This girl has it all. Incredibly beautiful, amazing style, and super talented.
Kaitlyn Ham It's not the first time i'm mentioning her here. But come on, she's simply the best, the quality of the photography, the style, i can scroll her blog forever.
Zanita Her style, really fascinates me! Although i'm a bit more minimal, she's just such an awesome gal and i simply can't get enough of her.
