More often than not, the anonymity provided by social media results in negativity and harsh criticisms, which is why one renowned designer, Stefan Sagmeister, aimed to find a new way for fellow creators to share new work, and receive professional input.

Stefan Sagmeister transformed his personal Instagram page into a forum for open discussion, in which designers and art critics can come together, submit work and most importantly, offer constructive criticism and support. The social media-driven service serves as an online iteration of the artists' previous practice, in which other artists would visit Sagmeister's New York studio, in search of constructive criticism.

The Instagram open forum demonstrates the accessibility social media provides, as well as social networking's ability to produce positivity and comradery.
