Best of the Web: Iso50
Scott Hansen runs Iso50.com, a blog that showcases amazing pieces of graphic design and architecture, as well as some very interesting selections of music. Whether it's a building in rural Sweden, a classic cut from Ulrich Schnauss, or a 1970s Winter Olympics poster, Hansen posts some of the most visually and aurally fascinating art on his site. Even better, Hansen is one of the best graphic design artists at the moment. Much of his work incorporates real life images that are crafted into something visually inspiring through the augmentation of color and emphasized patterns. It is synthetic, yet natural work and it is absolutely gorgeous. You can purchase his work as prints or you can get it on American Apparel T-shirts that he sells through his online shop. Check out his designs here.
Not only is Scott Hansen a brilliant artist, he is also a talented electronic musician, releasing down-tempo/trip-hop compositions under the moniker Tycho. Ghostly International recently released the single The Daydream/The Disconnect, which you can preview at tychomusic.com and he's in the process of completing his 2nd full-length album, which we can't wait to hear.
