Starting later today, Shelby White will join the ISO50 team as a contributor to the blog. Many of you will recognize Shelby as a frequent commenter here on ISO50. He also runs his own design blog, Wanken, which he has curated for the last couple years. As is evident from his posts, Shelby is extremely passionate about design. He has a remarkably discerning eye for captivating work — especially of the mid-century modern variety — and his aesthetic should fit right in here at the blog. He is currently living in Seattle, Washington, where he is studying at the Art Institute and working for BKWLD (A Sacramento/Seattle-based design agency where Scott spent some time as well).

We are excited to add a new perspective to ISO50 — please give Shelby a warm welcome, his first post should go up later this afternoon.

ISO50 SF Talk // Ticket Giveaway

Posted by ISO50


I’ll be giving a talk at the Academy of Art in San Francisco this Thursday evening, March 18th. I’m going to be covering a lot of ground — the talk is 2 hours — mostly talking about background, inspiration and process along with a question and answer period. The talk is limited to students (AAU students get in with ID) but the Academy has given us 20 additional seats to give away on the blog. If you’re interested in going just comment on this post and be sure to leave a valid email in the “email” field (email will not be published). We will then contact you with full details for the talk and get you put on the list.

Please only enter if you intend to go, spots are limited. Also, if you’re reading this and there are already 20 comments below, don’t give up! You’ll be put down as an alternate for people who end up not being able to make it (in our experience a lot of people either drop out or are unreachable via the email they provided.)

Good luck! Hope to see you Thursday.

New Audio Player

Posted by ISO50

iso50-plb
For those of you who listen to a lot of the songs here on the blog this should make your lives a lot easier. We’ve added a new audio player to the site for individual music posts which supports playlists. This means that you can just hit play and let them go without having to click each song individually. The new system is based off the same JWPlayer framework as the normal ISO50 Playlist player (top of the center column) but it will now be for individual posts as well. We will continue to update the main Playlist each month or so, but you can think of this as a new mini playlist each day. The skin is just temporary as I refine it, but all the core functionality should be there.

So far it’s only been implemented on Jakub’s recent “Top 50 Songs of 2009″ series but it will be used for all music posts moving forward. So give it a try and let us know how it’s working. If you find any bugs or issues please let us know in the comments.

Enjoy!
