Free Images to Help You Build Your Instagram Following

I’ve been on a mission to build out my social following as I build my business, and thus have started a series of images for Instagram that I’m making available to everyone for free use!

Growing your network on Instagram is all about providing content that people enjoy and want to see. Inspiring others to reach for their goals and find their happiness are a great way to do that, which is why I set out to create these fun images. Now I’m making them available to everyone for easy downloading and use. Enjoy, and happy Instagramming!

Feel free to adjust and filter as you see fit. And check back with me for additional images in the future. PS – a tag or shoutout to @barefaceddesign is always appreciated!

“To be an artist means never to avert one’s eyes.” – Akira Kurosawa


This is a personal favorite of mine, as I am constantly looking for beauty in places most people would not normally look. Whether it’s a lone plant growing out of the crack in an old plaster wall or graffiti that most would findĀ out of place. Opening your eyes to the potential for art in your surroundings is a wonderful way to tap into your creativity, even when you feel like you’re going through a dry spell.

“One can speak poetry just by arranging colors well, just as one can say comforting things in music.” -Vincent Van Gogh



Van Gogh was a master of color, and his words ring true to me as a designer. Finding the perfect color palette can make or break a design or artwork, so I hold this quote particularly close to my heart!

“You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” -Maya Angelou



Whenever I feel lethargic and like nothing I’m working on is going well I pull out this quote. For me, the best way to get over create-block is to force myself to start creating. Reminding myself that not every iteration of a design or every piece of artwork needs to be amazing is important to keeping those creative juices flowing.

“Originality is the best form of rebellion.” – Mike Sasso



Remembering that conforming to other people’s definition of normal is essential for any creative. Coming up with ideas that are outside of the current convention is how innovation occurs. If you’re a designer, a virtual assistant, the CEO of company, or in just about any job you can think of, rebelling against the norm is the best way to come up with new solutions to old problems.
