I am so glad you stopped by to read about the 8 Instagram Reels Ideas for Graphic Designers.
Alright, my fellow Graphic Designers, I know how hard it is to show your face on camera.
We are insiders, we love to be behind our computer screen and create all day!
But, Instagram made it clear that Reels are now essential for your growth on the platform.
So, if like me, Instagram is where you find your clients and show off projects, here are my 8 Instagram Reels Ideas for Graphic Designers.
1- 15 SECONDS DESIGN PROJECT PRESENTATION
So, take whatever design project you’ve just created or even a project that is old but you are proud of and breaking it down in 15 seconds.
Either explain with a voice-over the choices you made or present it with a cool trending song and mockups.

2- BEHIND THE SCENE OF THE DESIGN
This one is easy!
Show your computer screen, and explain quickly what you are working on.
3- YOUR GRAPHIC DESIGN PROCESS
So, basically in this Instagram Reels, you are going to explain your Graphic design process from onboarding to finish.
You do not have to show your face, you can make really nice animated design or background videos with animated text!
4- INQUIRY AND INFORMATION
Alright, this one is a little tricky for my “shy” designers.
I encourage you to show your face on this one, even if you are not very comfortable.
If you want prospects to get to your Inquiry Form or to contact you, they need to be comfortable/confident by seeing your face!
It will be easier for clients to work with you if they can see the face behind the design!
So, introduce yourself, talk, and show them where they can contact you.
5- QUICK PORTFOLIO
So, this one is fun!
That is a little challenging but we love a good challenge.
Try to show off as many Graphic Design projects as possible in less than 30 seconds.
Good luck and have fun!
6- EDUCATE YOUR AUDIENCE
Now, if Graphic Design doesn’t have any secrets for you, it is still a big mystery for others out there.
So, start by educating your audience on Graphic design terms, techniques, history, and psychology.
7- REVIEW AND TESTIMONIAL
So, The best way to land a client for a new project is to show off what you’ve done in the past and what the satisfied client said about you and your work.
Easy, start the Instagram reels by showing the work you’ve done and then make a transition with what the client said!
8- BEFORE AND AFTER
I will never get old of watching “before and after” Reels.
For like any subjects or industry. It is so satisfying to watch something changed for the better.
So, do the same with your work.
Now, there are two ways to do this.
First, show your graphic design work when you started (like the sketch) and make the transition to the finished project.
Second, show what your client was working with before he hired you and then show how you transformed his brand, logo, poster, and so on.
