Welcome to Creative Circle - a weekly series on DigitalMill where I'll be shining the spotlight on one creative entrepreneur I've recently discovered or am currently inspired by, along with 3 creative entrepreneurs you need to follow on Instagram.
Chances they'll all be kicking ass and taking names?
Let's just take a moment for the fact that her name is Zie Darling, shall we? How incredible is that? Really incredible, of course. I mean, how can you possibly not love that?
Second, her Instagram is #goals (even if you dislike saying goals just as much as I do). It's crisp and bright, with just the right amount of black and white and pops of pastel pinks, peach, and greens to make it a living dream.
If I'm honest, this is the exact aesthetic I'd like to create for my Instagram when I finally stop faffing about. The only exception is that Zie is 3765x cooler because she's an illustrator, graphic designer, Instagram stylist, and a branding coach. Yeah, I know. She's funny, real, and incredibly talented.
If that isn't enough reason to go follow here immediately, though, wait till you go through her content. She has a treasure trove of actionable and approachable content (for all stages of your business) related to branding and Instagram, and I guarantee that once you start browsing, it's going to be a while before you stop.
Snuggle up with your favourite beverage, because this one's going to be a long read.
