I love this funky app designed by Brisbane creative agency Josephmark. Self described 'It's, like, totally the coolest music app...so you've probably never heard of it." In a nutshell it is pretty much like downloading a virtual hipster to raid your iTunes library, dish out some typical hipster judgement and recommend some way cooler music for you to discover. What makes this app really co...

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...
