From cosmetics to hotel lobbies to fashion products to food and airport lounges and physical stores and gyms, Instagram is redefining our global aesthetic sense. What we consider beautiful is very much attributed to the feed, which created a new aesthetic genre that performs well on- and off-camera. Products, settings and spaces that are highly Instagrammable, like millennial pink packaging or bright faux-fur coats, are more popular and get made more. Instagram shareability has become a legitimate design decision across industries, as most items/contexts/spaces are going to be viewed exclusively online. This panel is going to explore the changes in production, distribution, marketing, and consumption that this visual evolution is going to bring, and some likely future visual identity-building scenarios for brands from different verticals.
