Growing up with the same name as the football-headed cartoon, I was always asked if I saw the show “Hey Arnold”. I’m sure Steve Harrington is getting the same treatment ever since Stranger Things was released. This Los Angeles-based artist/designer is best known for his psychedelic-pop style. His work ranges from drawings on the surface of Air Force Ones sneakers to installation exhibits downtown Los Angeles and makes for a fun account to follow.
This is one of those annoying instagram accounts with two underscores in their usernames but that’s beside the point. They post some super cool collections. For each typeface you can swipe right to see different uses of each font. It’s a brilliant use for the multiple photos in one post feature. It’s currently one of my go-to accounts to get the juices flowing, so I definitely recommended checking them out if you’re looking layout inspiration or new fonts.
