TikTok is a largely untapped source of great content. Tools and tips I’ve discovered on the platform have already provided me inspiration, new tools and countless ideas.
TikTok enables content creators to easily creating and upload short videos. Quicker than a carefully edited blog article and lighter than a curated and composed Instagram image and caption. TikTok posts can even be ugly – the message is key. As a result, the content is fresh, easy to consume and highly-valuable (if you’re following the right accounts).
There is an abundance of content to discover on any topic you’re interested in. I’m not going to try and convince you to join TikTok (even though I think you should). I’ll let the content speak for itself.
This is my curated list of TikTok accounts that you need to be following if you’re a designer or marketer:
Career Advice & Motivation
Madeline was one of the first TikTok resources I followed. Every single post has valuable insight. Madeline gives real advice on job applications and your career.
This is probably my favourite TikToker and resource. She packs an amazing amount of information into these 60-second videos – energetic, extremely helpful, personable.
Photography tips & inspiration
For amazing photography, video and inspiration for your own work.
Showing a lot of behind the scenes too. If you’ve ever wondered “how did they shoot that?” you might find your answers – and they make it look so simple. I can’t wait to try these when we can access the studio again (post-quarantine of course).
Product design & user experience (UX)

Animation, music & fun!
This one is just plain fun. I love the cute animations set to music. Take a break with this wholesome light-hearted entertainment.
