Isomorph Records, also known as Isomorphs, is an independent record label based in London. The label is run by acclaimed[1] designer, illustrator and entrepreneur Kate Moross.

Launched in November 2007,[2] in its first year the label has seen releases from Cutting Pink With Knives, Hearts Revolution, Midnight Juggernauts[3] and Apes and Androids. With each release Moross collaborates closely with the artists in order to create the definitive visual representation of their sound, that encapsulates the bands ideas and Moross’ vision for them.

Isomorphs has both repackaged existing music and discovered and released original tracks. Never releasing digitally or printing over 500 copies, Moross describes these records as, “a series of artists prints that you can listen to.”[4]

Next year will see Isomorphs grow to encompass a publishing house for forthcoming books designed by Kate Moross as well as a music merchandise clothing label.

Most of the catalogue is available online from http://www.isomorphs.com, and they are also stocked at a number of handpicked shops and boutiques from Scotland to San Francisco, including Rough Trade,[5] Pure Groove,[6] Colette,[7] pop-up shops and ice-cream trucks.[8]
