What Instagram achieved is simply amazing. They are the living proof that a simple social media website can connect more than 400 million users on a single platform. Imagine that everything started with a mobile network that allowed you to add filters on your photo.

Today, we can see talented photographers, brands and agencies that connect to their community through Instagram.

After we shared with you the “Anatomy of an Instagram ad” Infographic, we took a closer look to the creative industry and rounded up a list of 32 agencies (digital, design, advertising and production) that are active on Instagram and can be a great inspiration resource for you and start using our Instagram Story maker.

Enjoy!
