For me, Instagram has been the primary social tool for ministry to student communication for a long time. Students love taking selfies and the addition of direct messaging has made it a well-rounded platform. If you’re struggling to use it well in your ministry, here are ten quick and simple ways your student ministry can use Instagram like a boss.
This week, Instagram finally updated their app icon to meet Apple design standards set with iOS 6 (released in 2013). But hey, when you’re that popular who cares if you’re a little behind the times…
With a new design change, all your previous “Follow Us On Instagram” artwork looks dated – and believe me, students notice when things look dated.
Right after the new design appeared, I put together a new Instagram design package for the ministry I lead – I don’t like things to go to waste on my hard drive, so here are the elements I used to make the “follow us” art based on the new design.
It’s completely free and there’s no “free, but you have to sign up for emails” string attached. Just completely free art so you can make your ministry look fresh.
First up, the background:
Next, the logo:
Note: PNG art is transparent, so you can add it on top of anything and it looks great. Using the PSD file, you can make the art any color you wish – Photoshop or other similar apps required.
If you’re curious about the font used, it’s Moon Flower – another free download.
