Sam Smith is one of my favorite designers and an all around great guy. Living in Nashville he produces many posters for the independent theatre The Belcourt. I’m always impressed with Sam’s ability to use simple shapes and warm colors. His art is anachronistic, moving and always makes me take a second look. Check out more work on his website and don’t forget to take a look at the numerous covers and packages he has created for The Criterion Collection.

Started a new disco edit series on Moodgadget, we’re actually taking demos(info below), i’ll keep posting them on the blog, with art direction from longtime ISO50 commenter H34dUp.
Moodgadget presents a new series of split singles, featuring disco edits from Brooklyn Bass helmsman Evan Michael, and introducing the secret edit project of veteran Moodgadget designer, Alex Koplin, as Choplin. An update to one of the SOS Band’s classic hits, “After All” adds a bass heavy push and pull with minor chords and glitzy arpeggiation creating a new dynamic. “Never Forget” presents a re-working of Dexter Wansel honing in on an impeccable groove you might have inadvertently passed over in the original. – Moodgadget

Below is official pattern for the series:
Designer Richard Robinson was recently commissioned to work on a LP rework for Aphex Twin: Selected Ambient Works. Alongside this, he also designed some great posters which feature some of the master tapes from the original recordings.
This one’s for my Breaking Bad brethren & sistren, who like me, are still reeling from the ending of one televisions greatest shows. A poster set by Ty Mattson illustrating the transformation of Bryan Cranston’s character, Walter White, over the course of the highly-acclaimed series.

Just wanted to preview some new work here and write a quick post about an opening I’m having tomorrow night at Subtext Gallery in San Diego, California called Anium.
The show is split into two parts, still and motion. There will be 24 print pieces on display and 4 video installations. I’m really excited about the video installations but they’re still being wrapped up, so you’ll have to drop in to check them out. The goal was to create short moving posters with no related theme. There will be 3 small 27″ screens that we’ve rehoused and one 8 ft monolith with a 50″ screen.
If you’re in the area or close, come on by! It’d be great to meet some people from the blog!
The show will be up from September 13th – October 13th at Subtext gallery in San Diego. Click here for the Facebook event. If you can’t make the opening or are interested in checking out the show online, here’s the full preview of the show and ways to purchase prints.
Sam Chirnside does some great font branding for musicians, I dug a little deeper into his catalog and grabbed up most of them. My favorite has to be the AVOCA type, its those subtle clean changes that takes the uniqueness up more than just a few notches.
If you have about 2 hours to kill i’d suggest going thoroughly through the 150 year history of the stamps and imagery from the Dutch Postal Service.
