This week on Instagram: brightbazaar

Will TaylorThis week I’m featuring an Instagram account I really enjoy following. Will Taylor is the man behind the IG account, brightbazaar, and with 200,000+ followers, I’m going to bet more than a few of you may already follow him.

What I really like about brighbazaar is the colors that seem to pop in every photo taken. There is obviously a lot of time spent thinking about the look he is trying to capture and the effect isn’t lost on me. Anyone with an eye and appreciation for design is going to really enjoy this account.
