Without further ado, here is my list of top 10 inspirational creative Instagram accounts:

@districtwhitelabel is a digital printing company with great taste in design! The company's Instagram is the perfect inspiration for graphic designers and stationers because of the content they post. They regularly post the work of graphic designers that print with them and link the images back to the designer's Instagram. They also post things like 'color love' and 'pattern love,' which can draw inspiration to designers and encourage the use of colors and patterns they may not otherwise use.
