I want to take a moment to tell you about my instamodes.

My goal with these is to make them as seamless as possible, without having to change anything about how you want to display them.

For example, my instams have a grid design so I can easily share them as you browse around.

You can also use them as a backdrop to add visual interest to your site.

This is a design concept I created while researching for my Master of Design thesis at MIT.

Instamodes are a new and growing category of visual content, and they’re changing the way we think about how we interact with content.

Here are a few tips to help you make them look seamless, without going overboard.


Be creative, not prescriptive.

I can’t emphasize this enough.

I think this applies to everything in this post, so feel free to take my instames and try to make your own.

I’d love to see what you come up with.

I’m sure there are some instams you can use for inspiration, so be sure to share them in the comments!
