Signal Sounds Identity
23rd Nov 2016
We’ve just developed a bold, new identity for Jason Brunton and his new venture at Signal Sounds. The new venture, based in Glasgow, sells analogue and digital instruments with a heavy focus on modular synths. The graphic approach combines the ‘logical’ and ‘messy’ world of synth patchboards. A fully developed website will be coming in 2017.
Project page coming soon.
Sub Club Relaunch
20th Jun 2016
Arguably the best small club in the world has just got even better. After a three-month closure for refurb, Subbie is re-opening its brand new dazzle doors designed by ISO. The once concealed entrance has been transformed into a more zesty eye-catching threshold. The pattern is repeated inside, surrounding the chill out booths.

Channel 4’s second screen app, 4Now offers viewers real-time interaction for voting, games and quizzes.
The “always on” app, the first to be launched by a free-to-air broadcaster in the UK, is intended to exploit the “second screen” phenomenon – a viewers’ inclination to be on their devices (iPads, mobiles, etc) whilst also watching their favourite shows.
ISO worked on the graphics for the 4Now app. Download it here now.

Justin Currie: Lower Reaches release
19th Aug 2013
The new album artwork we have designed for Justin Currie, former frontman of Del Amitri, is now out. The third in the series of covers we have done for Justin’s solo albums this took us from the urban environs of Glasgow’s SWG3 studios to the great Scottish outdoors, lugging a photographic backdrop of the American desert. Designed in homage to the transatlantic sessions he did between the Western Isles and Austin, Texas the backdrop lives on supporting Justin on his present UK tour. Photography by the very talented Armando Ferrari.
