The US Dollar needs a redesign?

Posted by Jakub








A great practice idea for graphic designers is redesigning the US Dollar, compared to Canada and many European countries I feel we just got screwed a bit, while the detailing in the US dollar is classy I feel like the overall collection from coin to paper is not the best it can be, I don’t think any of the designs above are the answer either. I was thinking would anyone be down to submit redesigns to ISO50 and we can have a contest with giveaways? Let me know below if its a good idea and i’ll get together a submission post.

ISO50: Soundcloud Who To Follow Guide: #4

Posted by Jakub


I see even bigger things happening for Soundcloud in the future, mainly the community within it coming closer so I decide to start a guide of people to follow if you like what’s on ISO50. Below I started off with frequent users that make your feed more enjoyable with quality posts.

This week we start with a label that I highly respect Kranky, today they shared a new single from the upcoming Loscil LP and if you keep scrolling down you’ll find that this feed is a very generous one. Next is Incase who are share with you a compilation they posted last week. You can find a lot of exclusive live versions on this one, one of the more underrated accounts on Soundcloud I think. One of my favorite DJs Tornado Wallace is starting to use his account more and more, he just his Recloose remix which i’m on the hunt for, hope you all enjoy.


RECORD LABEL: KRANKY


BRAND: INCASE


ARTIST: TORNADO WALLACE

Impossible Project Instant Lab

Posted by Jonathan

The Impossible Project launched the Impossible Instant Lab via Kickstarter, which is designed to transform any digital image via your iPhone into an instant photo that is exposed using only the light from the display, then processed and developed by chemicals. A photo that no longer needs an electronic device to be seen.

What are everyone’s thoughts on this? Is a photo just a photo, or…?

Weekend Inspiration: Tomas Saraceno

Posted by Jonathan










Argentinian artist Tomas Saraceno goes beyond the traditional conceptions of place, time, gravity and our familiar notions of architecture. Saraceno is an artist and architect whos visions for cities floating in the air have led him to create a series of experimental structures such as balloons or inflatable modular platforms that can be inhabited and exploit natural energies. Any of his objects is an invitation to think about alternative knowledge, about emotions and the interaction with others. They invite you to participate, like Poetic Cosmos Of The Breath (pictured above), an experimental solar dome, which was part of The Arts Catalyst’s 2nd International Artists Airshow.
At dawn, crowds formed around a giant and colorful, circular foil, pinned to the ground at the edges with sand bags. Throughout the morning, the artist and his team gradually filled the foil with air and visitors could walk through this stunning colored wonderland.

Ghostly International x Incase Comp

Posted by Jakub



To celebrate the Ghostly International: Of Art and Artifice event Incase shared this amazing compilation of songs which includes a Kolombo remix of Tycho, Tensnake rework of Osborne, Fort Romeau edit of Beacon and many more.

Incase is proud to support Ghostly International: Of Art and Artifice, a multi-day event presented by the Art Directors Club CRE8 Series that promotes art connected through a spirit of inventiveness and anti-genre thinking. In the years since its birth in 1999, Ghostly has grown from a boutique label known for its experimental-pop and -techno acumen to an internationally recognized platform for the work of the world’s best visual artists, designers, technologists, and musicians.
As a multi-platform cultural curator, Ghostly International is a tightly knit aesthetic universe fulfilling the roles of art gallery, design house, clothing designer, technology innovator, music-publishing company and record label, all in one. From September 13-16, The Art Directors Club will house a comprehensive exhibition that gives a peek into what’s next after 13 years of creativity from Ghostly International, highlighting an essential selection of work from the Ghostly family in a never-before-seen collection. In addition to the exhibition, Of Art and Artifice will also encompass a series of events that include an Opening Gala with live performances by Com Truise, Lusine and NYC’s own Michna, as well as two days of talks with Ghostly artists hosted by Incase.

Side By Side iPhone 5 vs iPhone 4S video

Posted by Jakub


I think this video is legit, we’ve been holding off on posting anything, would love your thoughts on what you guys think. Here’s what i’m loving:

- headphone jack at the bottom
- new connection port
- looks like we have less glass on the back
- larger screen, slimmer body

which brings up questions…

- will the headphone jack be in the way?
- what do we do with the 5 or more $20 iPhone cords we have?
- will it feel less like a precious possession? ;)
- will this make it less durable than it already is?
