Pattern Pulp x The Gramlist

patternpulp_cover

When you walk into a store and are instantly drawn to a something, chances are Shayna Kulik could’ve predicted that. In fact, if you’re at Apple, Steven Alan (among many others), she literally did. Her studio Pattern Pulp forecasts trends and develops custom patterns that you didn’t know you wanted.

So what on earth could a trend forecaster possibly find interesting and new (considering she might’ve well gotten wind of a color, trend or idea a year earlier)? These 14 Instagram feeds, that’s what.

Check our Shayna’s favorite corners of the scrollable Internet.

I’m Shayna Kulik, a creative director and trend forecaster with a penchant for patterns. I’m also the editor of Pattern Pulp.

Each of these feeds delivers a bite of graphic delight through a whimsical and realist prism. They’re all inspiring and have independently lead me down colorful rabbit holes.
