INSPIRATION 69 / ICE CREAM BOOKS

 

Social media is such an interesting place these days, while there is some movement away from that “perfect” feed, there is still so much pressure feel like you have to try and keep up with everyone else. I’m kind of over that mentality, and so I really love when I come across accounts that are just pure fun and inspiration, and nothing else. Ice Cream Books is one of those accounts. It combines two of my favorite things, ice cream and books (duh), and the art direction is just so good. You know we love a good simple shot with a colorful background and sharp shadows, and this account is filled with just that.

According to an article by AIGA, Ice Cream Books is run by Ben Denzer who is a book cover designer. He started taking these photos to throw a little shade at the perfectly styled overhead book shots by influencers. He takes the photos outside (sometimes even directly outside the ice cream shop) and then adds the colored backgrounds in post production. Denzer’s account is so popular that it’s followed by people like Bella Hadid and Emma Roberts.

Take a look at some of my favorite shots below and let me know which one is your favorite.
