Make no mistake: social network platforms have become virtual galleries for creatives out there wanting to express themselves (and perhaps, snag a gig). And why not? Displaying your work is easy to do, it’s instantly shareable, and your audience is limitless.  

David Schwen is a Minneapolis-based graphic artist who has taken the popularity of Pantone to another level on Instagram, by posting creative and cute embellishments of the familiar color swatch concept.
