As a designer and a creative in this highly digital age, there is one tool that can help you connect to your chosen field. The pound symbol.
Hashtags are important to include in every work in progress photo, conference pictures, and final designs that you decide to make public on either your Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and Behance.
While a long list of #hashtags might be really #annoying to see, a.k.a friends on Twitter, #friends #crazynight #socool #fun #cute #obnoxious #yougetthepoint, they are an amazing way to have your chosen field's community connect with you. For example, if you hashtag your newest design poster with the #typography on Instagram, others in the field can find you when they are searching for it, and can start following you.
You will be exposed to more work and people in your creative field and they will be more exposed to you.
Start searching the tags you like. Try it. Search #design. We dare you. All of those posts are there because of a tiny pound symbol.
