Absolutely loving these guys at the moment — even more so after their scintillating live show in Camden last night. Of Monsters and Men are musical geniuses (genii?), something akin to Arcade Fire with piano accordian, trumpet and timpani action aplenty. I see they're doing a fair bit of touring around Europe in t...

As has been well blogged about in recent times, there are an awful lot of hipster-esque identites surfacing around the traps. I suspect partially because there's an undeniable beauty to the pared-down elegance of that look, but I also suspect there's a certain 'ease' factor (some might call it 'lazy'!) in generating them. I was fortunate enough to be taught...

Can you believe this is a student project? My jaw dropped when I found out. Hungarian designer Boglárka Nádi created this set of stamps based on Hungarian folk tales for her thesis. The detail is incredible. See many more images on her ...

Don't even get me started on how much I'm crushing on this Finnish lass, originally from Helsinki but now freelancing in New York City. With incredible studio experience behind her (um, RoAndCo and Pentagram, anyone?) this girl knows what's what. Everything she does has such a strong personal aesthetic and flair. Her illustrations are quirky and texture-heavy, but it's really her affinity with mat...
