Contributor: Shelby White

Posted by ISO50

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.

About time! I always assumed you guys were somehow connected as your site designs are kinda similar…

Looking forward the the new posts Shelby! :)

“I enjoy Wanken” – don’t we all, but thanks for sharing. :)

It’s a great blog but THE worst name! (Well maybe only for those of us with a juvenile sense of humour who live in the UK).

Looking forward to your contributions Shelby (hopefully this doesn’t mean your own site is going to be neglected).

Welcome! I’m looking forward to your new format of contribution (you’ve clearly already been contributing via comments for some time). Good to see you becoming a more official fixture around here.

Rad, Shelby’s the man.
He helped me with some questions about photography a while back—he actually took the time to answer my emails! He’ll be a great addition to ISO50.

Good news! I really enjoy the Wanken blog as well, so this is a lovely addition to the group. Can’t wait to see what he adds to the collection…

Well damn! Being already subscribed to both iso50 and wanken, now I’ll get a double dose of Shelby.

And that, my friends, is awesome.

Thank you everyone. That is the warmest welcome I’ve received in quite sometime!

I’m looking forward to what everyone has to say and no need to worry, I won’t be neglecting Wanken at all.
