Joseph Abi Saab @josephabisaab

As­so­ciate Cre­ative Di­rec­tor at JWT Joseph Abi Saab has built quite an in­ter­est­ing In­sta­gram pres­ence that com­bines in­spi­ra­tion, aes­thet­ics and ev­ery­day sight­ings all un­der one roof. A nat­u­ral blend of clever pho­to­graphs, mouth­wa­ter­ing smooth­ies and col­or­ful com­po­si­tions, his ac­count is sim­ply a de­light to scroll down for ver­sa­tile in­spi­ra­tion-seek­ers.

Ge­orge Mak­tabi @mak­tabig

Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor of Leo Bur­nett KSA Ge­orge Mak­tabi’s In­sta­gram ac­count is filled with char­ac­ter­ful il­lus­tra­tions that are both ex­pres­sive, metic­u­lous and eye-catch­ing. The cre­ative depth, cul­tural ref­er­ences and at­ten­tion to de­tail in his work are just re­fresh­ing and en­rich­ing to look at.

Karl Sfeir @karls­feir

Pho­tog­ra­pher and Graphic De­signer Karl Sfeir has man­aged to forge his own aes­thetic style in a short pe­riod of time, blend­ing dif­fer­ent in­flu­ences into his work and show­cas­ing real-life el­e­ments in a dif­fer­ent light. This youth-fla­vored ma­tu­rity beau­ti­fully trans­lated into his In­sta­gram ac­count, which of­fers a per­sonal rec­ol­lec­tion of events, peo­ple and places.

Yas­mina Bous­tani @yas­minabous­tani

FP7 Cre­ative and Pas­sion­ate Art Di­rec­tor/pho­tog­ra­pher Yas­mina Bous­tani boasts a de­light­ful In­sta­gram ac­count that traces a beau­ti­ful jour­ney through time and space, ex­pressed in the form of dy­namic, and of­ten ar­chi­tec­tural, pho­to­graphs. A def­i­nite gem to fol­low if you’re into sub­tle aes­thet­ics that are not boxed into a sin­gle nar­ra­tive but rather ex­tend to cover mis­cel­la­neous as­pects of the world we live in.

Pamela Hachem @pamhachem

Jug­gling the worlds of pho­tog­ra­phy, de­sign, so­cial me­dia and dig­i­tal mar­ket­ing, Hachem uti­lized her ver­sa­tile back­ground to cre­ate a com­pelling In­sta­gram ac­count where aes­thet­ics and sub­stance in­ter­twine in per­fect har­mony. Be­sides post­ing beau­ti­ful pho­to­graphs, she has cre­ated a charm­ing post se­ries dubbed #Por­trait­sofwhaty­oulove in which she show­cases peo­ple from var­i­ous fields pos­ing cre­atively with one of their pre­ferred props along­side a spe­cial quote from each.
