This website has been designed and developed as an innovative use of Instagram.

The portfolio content displayed is all live-streaming from the Instagram of Dan Forster Design. If you visit Instagram you will notice the content is replicated. The live-streaming content is automatically re-formatted with designated styles on this website.

An innovative feature is the purposeful handling of Instagram’s #hashtags. Specific #hashtags in individual Instagram posts assigns each post to a menu on this website, such as ‘Branding’ or ‘Websites’. This approach not only makes an enhanced use of Instagram but also removes the requirement for manually added content to the website.


The logo for Dan Forster Design takes the ‘D’ for Dan and Design and simply adds a single curved line to make an eye, representing visual communication.
