Journalist Brandon Stanton’s blog, Humans of New York, has received national acclaim for its unique and provocative style.

VSCO is a well-established platform in the realm of visual art, particularly photography. Curating the art of photographers from around the world, VSCO sports an inspirational feed and unique style. For this reason, it is often used as a forum for both amateur and experienced photographers who want to diversify their content.

@kreadiv inspires Adrian Marcus

Kreadiv turns the curation of creativity into an art process of its own. Collecting a portfolio of the most creative images posted to instagram, Kreadiv has created a consistent and aesthetically impressive workflow out of their newsfeed.
