Meet Julio, Your New Fave Animal to Follow on Instagram
While last year, we were totally captivated by “What Does the Fox Say?,” this year, it’s all about where the fox goes. Meet Julio, the world’s first globe-trotting fox.
He’s a fox who travels the world and makes friends easily, hopping from country to country and sharing his adventures on Instagram (@huntgram). He also recently launched his own photo sharing community app (also called Huntgram), which means he’s not only charmingly furry, but also impressively ambitious.
Julio is the creation of two Argentine dudes who love to explore and wanted to bring the Instagram community closer together (in real life — gasp!). Lucas Warat and Agustin Gotlib commissioned a friend to make the fantastical fox head for their project, and now they bring him everywhere. “In airports, security guards always open the bag and ask us what is this all about,” the duo told Buzzfeed in an interview this fall. “But everyone ends up laughing at it.”
Where do you think Julio should go next? Let us know in the comments!
Social media is an amazing free marketing tool that didn't exist 15 years ago. Particularly with Instagram, you can use a few images and words to tell followers who you are in an instant. While we can't share *all* the things we covered in this week's Selfmade master session on social media and brand voice, as part of our collaboration with Office Depot we're sharing a few key takeaways.
