It’s exactly a year since I discovered and started creating effects for Instagram and Facebook with Spark AR!
I’ve always thought that digital technologies would enhance our life experience and help us in various ways so I am strongly optimistic about the future and innovations!
I am proud to be a small part of this process, working and studying how to entertain, educate, support people and do more interactive marketing and communication through AR!
Till a couple of months ago I was mostly oriented toward natural makeup effects, characters and simple branded filters for small businesses, but I am very excited to move toward more immersive and world-oriented effects!

Camilo Adams is a multimedia and visual designer creating for example awesome abstract and geometric 3D art and cyberpunk neon animations 👾 With his artistic skills, he now has added some cool AR filters to his portfolio 🕸🤩
I started animating augmented reality stories for children, then I discovered the world of filters that Instagram offers. Now I am embarked on a journey in which I am in constant collaboration with my friend Fabian and enjoying every second of it. Currently, we set monthly goals in order to achieve the best immersive experiences we can do using the power of AR. We like allowing the user to interact with each scenario that we create and insert a little narrative of their own. Our last experience with AR was recreating a little bit of Lovecraft’s story “the hounds of tindalos”, whose results made us feel proud. This month we plan to release 3 more filters, this time with a higher level of complexity. This time we will focus on immersive storytelling.

Rafael Excel is an Instagram AR filter creator from Malang, Indonesia 💫 Apart from digital art, his enthusiasm for fashion can be seen in his clothing brand ‘Resume’ 🤩👕👖 His filters are definitely something else!
Hello! I’m Rafael Excel, an Indonesian based Instagram Filter Creator. In 2020 I graduated from Ma Chung University, in distinction to a major in English Letters. I’m currently working mainly as a Graphic Designer for now. That’s a bit unrelatable, but life is always so random, yet I love it so far. Indeed, I have loved art since I was a child, so I’m not surprised to be back on track.
My interest in Augmented Reality actually began a long time ago. when I was a kid watching an anime called “Yu Gi Oh” and wondering if in reality, those playing cards can really bring out monsters somehow. Then in around 2018 or 2019, I saw someone created a ‘Flappy Bird’ kind of filter game that went viral on Instagram. There, I started to learn about Spark AR and started creating my first filters. I learn all the basics mainly from Spark AR’s guide tutorial, YouTube (thanks to Josh Beckwith, Catalyst, Luke Hurd, and Eddy Adams), and messing around with Spark AR’s finished project samples and templates. As of today, I have created over 100+ filters, either for me or my clients. I don’t have any specific filter style, but I always love to include unique artistic elements in my creation. I got my Inspirations mostly from Pinterest and movies, but often those ideas suddenly came to my head while I was busy doing stuff.
I’m still having a lot of ideas that I haven’t realized yet into filters because most of them failed in the process and I couldn’t figure out the solution. But experiments make perfect. I’m planning to master 3d modelling more to upgrade my skill to support me in the creation of making filters. With the growth of Spark AR, I’m going to continue my exploration of the world of Augmented Reality and keep creating.

Margianna Katsigianni is a digital creator based in Greece. After majoring in business she decided to experiment more with AR and since then she has made many cool AR filters 🥳 “Still learning and creating” – that’s the spirit! 🚀✨
Hi! I am Margianna from Greece. Almost two years ago I started wondering what if I could turn my photo edits into Instagram filters. Just like that I searched and learned from tutorials how to build my first filters. Since then I am constantly trying to learn and expand my knowledge upon Augmented Reality.
I am studying Business Administration and it’s a dream of mine to someday turn my passion for AR into a full-time job. I hope to bring a more artistic way of expression through AR as I have wanted to combine art and technology since I was a teenager.
My influences derive from music, cover albums, Pinterest mood boards I create, and the trends that are circulating.
Currently, I am starting to learn more skills such as 3D and animation to build more complex filters and hoping to get certified through the new Spark AR Pro course.
Lenslist has been a great motivation for all us creators to keep trying, discovering new creators and getting inspired.

With over 100 filters Gede Wira can definitely be called an experienced digital creator working with both AR and XR 🚀🚀 He’s also an AR developer who will assist others in increasing impressions and gaining more views on social media platforms. The artistic experience he has is huge and it only takes one look at his filters to see this ✨👀
In my opinion, we see more users using AR for social media daily. I noticed this early I wanted to throw some of my own ideas into an Instagram filter. Some of the filters I’ve made like Beauty filter, Game and many more have received overwhelming feedback so that is what keeps me going. It inspires me to keep designing and exploring more.
In the future, I think AR will be very important for branding whether it’s for a personal or a company matter as digital marketing. Apart from that, I wanted to make AR a business that I could advertise.

A personal blogger from Novosibirsk, Russia with a huge selection of quality AR filters 🌟 She helps others build a captivating portfolio and attract customers and followers to your profile – everything with the use of AR 🙌🏻
Hello everyone. My name is Anai-Khaak. I am from the Republic of Tuva, but I have been living and working in Novosibirsk for several years. I am an economist by education.
At the moment I am developing my blog on Instagram, I also manage and promote other people’s accounts and am an expert in creating AR filters.
I started creating masks at the beginning of 2020, but seriously started practicing a little more than six months ago.
To improve my skills, I took many courses.
For the first months I hardly slept at night, because this case turned out to be so fascinating and interesting. And I am very glad that I have found for myself an exciting business that brings great pleasure. Now I work with brands, major bloggers and many interesting people.
I make filters from simple to 3D. But I like to do mostly beauty masks and random masks. In the future, I plan to dive into the 3D world to create more complex effects.
