You will meet Marioly, who will tell you how she met Instagram and how far it has taken her: from publishing a book and giving talks in London, to traveling the world. You will see where he finds inspiration as a photographer and designer, between trips, bookstores, ceramics, inspiring patterns and, above all, outside Instagram.

You will learn what Visual Storytelling is as a brand strategy, its importance and why Instagram is one of the best channels to do so.

Marioly will explain one of the most effective strategies that she calls the "Game of 5", and will help you with the topics on which you will focus the content of your profile. Next, you will define your personal style or your brand to have a common thread in your narrative and you will start to make a mood board . Then, you will see the importance of planning your project to the fullest, considering from possible trips to materials that you will need.

And later you will understand how you should distribute your content through Instagram applications.
