Bar­ring­ton Reeves shows us his In­sta­gram feed

Bar­ring­ton Reeves is a graphic de­signer based in Glas­gow. With his stu­dio Too Gal­lus, he mostly helps new busi­nesses and in­di­vid­u­als turn their ideas into re­al­ity. He guides them through the design process of start­ing a busi­ness, cov­er­ing every­thing from brand dis­cov­ery, po­si­tion­ing and logo design, right through to cre­at­ing brand guide­lines and web­sites.

“I try to take pic­tures of every­thing that in­spires me, whether it’s a cool vin­tage car with awe­some colour com­bi­na­tions or some­thing I’ve seen out and about in the city,” he says. “My cam­era roll has turned into this awe­some vis­ual diary that I can look back on and take in­spi­ra­tion from when I start a new project.”

Reeves loves In­sta­gram be­cause he says it con­tains “such a wealth of amaz­ing design that it al­ways pushes you to get out of your own head and try new things.” He tries to main­tain a bal­ance in his feed be­tween fin­ished cre­ative work and be­hind-the-scenes shots of what he’s up to in work and life. “No mat­ter what I’m tak­ing pho­tos of or show­cas­ing, my feed is about clean, fresh, min­i­mal and good design,” he con­cludes.
