How to Use Graphic Design Trends to Support Your Brand Aesthetic on Social Media

So when it comes to integrating new design elements, it's important to make sure you're still supporting your brand's visual identity.

The best way to do this is by using a free Instagram feed planner to preview how your Instagram feed will look before you post.
