"One early adopter [of Instagram] was Los Angeles-based designer and artist Justina Blakeney. She has a blog and online design shop called Jungalow and is author of The New Bohemians Handbook: Come Home to Good Vibes (Abrams, GBP19.99). Her handle, @thejungalow, now has more than 880,000 followers, and the platform is perhaps the perfect showcase for her love of juicy colour and luxuriant botanical motifs.
"I've been on Instagram since early 2011," she says. "A friend touted it to me as the new Twitter for visual people. It's my favourite social media platform because it's visual and simple. For me, many things make an image compelling - it can be beautiful, relatable, funny, colourful, thought-provoking or moving." BBC Culture
