What Type of Instagram Character are You?

May 2018
Che Stevenson

But let’s be honest, the people around us fall into some pretty obvious stereotypes. Do you really think that only applies to everyone else? Are you REALLY that different to everyone else?

Who doesn’t love putting things in boxes? We sure do! So throw caution to the wind: read on to discover your hidden Instagram character!

Which one of these matches your Instagram character?

The Foodie

The Foodie generates a stream of brunch posts, frequent users of the hashtags #foodporn. You love to snap every meal you eat and every coffee you sip. You can usually be found brunching at boutique cafes and dining at restaurants.

Has a consistent feed combining meal prep shots, gym workouts and topless selfies- in remarkably good lighting I might add. You are an expert in the industry and usually post pics with lengthy captions about motivation and PB’s.

Rio de Janeiro, Cancun and Maldives – always on vacation and documenting every second of it. Other users refer to you as ‘living the dream’ or at least living the dream through your Insta account.

The Average Joe

Joe is a fictional character who associates with ‘an ordinary person’. You use Instagram to post only when it is convenient for you, other times you’ll be found sitting creepily behind the curtains and watching the world go by.

The Lurker

We’ve all been there – 54 weeks deep into someone’s profile, about to zoom in when your finger accidentally double taps and the whole world comes crumbling down. An accidental like for an experienced lurker is embarrassing to say the least but that is part and parcel of using Instagram to track people’s lives. This stereotypical grammer loves to keep tabs on what their followers are up to.

Posts consist of: #regrams #air

Favourite hashtags: #stalker #lurker #imwatchingyou #judging

Typical Lurkers: #yourex #yourcrazycousin #yourbiggestfan

From the pictures you post, to the filters you choose, Instagram can reveal a lot about you! Of course you may not fit perfectly into one of these stereotypes, there are plenty of others out there, but after clear calibration and research these results show where majority fit into the broader scheme of the gram.

Real REsults

Engaging and simple travel agency website to appeal to mature target audience

We designed and developed a gorgeous and simple website for Bendigo's longest-running travel agency. And along the way we refreshed the logo, developed a colour palette, and wrote a brand new slogan! Phew; we were busy on this one! But it was totally worth it because the results are stunning!

Real REsults

First-time logo and website for a 35-year-old engineering firm

After 35 years in business working with Melbourne's leading builders, it amazes us that VHC Engineers had never had a logo, or even a website for that matter. Never. But fear not! We changed all of that by developing a brand strategy to guide the development of a new brand identity followed by rollout of an extensive website design that elevates the brand in a competitive market landscape.
