Weekend Hashtag Project is a series featuring designated themes & hashtags chosen by Instagram’s Community Team. For a chance to be featured on the Instagram blog, follow @instagram and look for a post announcing the weekend’s project every Friday.
The goal this weekend is to capture creative photos of typography in the wild. Some tips to get you started:
Words are everywhere! Look for hand-painted signs, colorful billboards, advertisements in the newspaper or all around. Once you start looking for type, you’ll see it all over.
Seek out the unusual. Look for characters that are hand-drawn or that are particularly colorful. Vintage signs and antique shops tend to be filled with these treasures.
Don’t be afraid to experiment with how you frame your photo. Zoom out to show the word or phrase it its entirely or get up close on a single letter to emphasize its shape in an abstract way.
PROJECT RULES: Please only add the #WHPtypeinthewild hashtag to photos taken over this weekend and only submit your own photographs to the project. Any image taken then tagged over the weekend is eligible to be featured right here Monday morning!
@pauloctavious: Imagine being on set of one of your favorite shows (@lookinghbo) and seeing three of your favorite characters (Dom, Agustin, & Kevin) huddled around a phone joking around. Then walking up to those fellas and finding out they are the most genuine fellas ever! I then pulled them into a room and photographed them while pinching myself. ☺
