List_marion-pinaffo-raphael-pluvinage-agnes-agullo-papier-machine-product-design-itsnicethat Work / Product Design The Papier Machine collection of DIY electronic paper toys reinvents the activity book

After three years of research and some serious accolades, the trio of designers behind _ Papier Machine_ are launching their product to the world. The book contains six interactive, electronic toys made from paper and silkscreen printed with conductive silver ink. Each is perforated, ready to pop out and construct, and comes with a set of components, including button cell batteries, metal marbles, piezo elements and sound chips.

Hexatope-product-design-itsnicethat-list Work / Product Design Hexatope: the web-app utilising computational arts to make personalised jewellery

Web developer and jewellery designer Charlotte Dann has just launched Hexatope in a move that sees her combining her two seemingly unrelated interests. Hexatope is a system that allows users to design their own unique jewellery using “intuitive interaction with a hexagonal grid.” Designs are then fabricated using cutting edge 3d-printing technology and cast into sterling silver or 18ct gold.

Diary_may_724x474 Regulars / Diary May diary: this month’s must-see events and exhibitions

This month there are a flurry of great new art and design shows opening in London, New York and beyond, and the It’s Nice That team has selected their must-sees.

List-new Work / Animation Nikita Diakur’s chaotic animations are a gross study in dynamic computer simulation

Warning: do not watch the above video if you’re sensitive, hungover or a bit stressed. The work of Russian-born, Mainz-based filmmaker Nikita Diakur might just break you. As part of a hotshot team of animators, Nikita has created Ugly, a film project inspired by stories mined from the internet, each filled with bizarre characters, high-octane urban environments and terrifyingly unpredictable physics.

Amelie-kahn-ackermann-sijiagou-remembering-home-photography-its-nice-that-11list Work / Photography Amelie Kahn-Ackermann's latest series is an ode to one of China’s most remote regions

“I always carried a little snapshot camera with me as a child, but I started taking photography more seriously when I was a teenager living in Beijing. After graduating from high school, I started studying photography at Berlin’s Ostkreuzschule für Fotografie,” Amelie Kahn-Ackermann tells It’s Nice That. Amelie has spent her entire life in metropolises; born in Beijing and studying in Berlin, the cosmopolitan photographer is accustomed to the fast-paced intensity of urban life. Her latest series Sijiagou – Remembering Home, however, is a celebration of one of China’s most remote regions, the home of her grandfather’s village, Sijiagou. Populated by far-reaching hills and magnificent mountain ranges, Sijiagou is made up of a small community of people whose days are determined by seasonal changes and manual labour.

Posturing-publication-itsnicethat-list Work / Publication Posturing is a celebration of haphazard, surreal and aesthetically odd contemporary fashion photography

Despite being an industry worth $3 trillion, fashion is still often viewed as frivolous and inexplicably linked with the glamorous, over-sexualised celebrity culture of the 2000s. Shonagh Marshall, a London-based fashion curator, who previously held the position of curator at Somerset House, began to notice a shift away from such ideals while curating Hair, an exhibition of Sam McKnight’s work in 2016.

Water Work / Illustration A chat with the Wellcome Collection staffer behind its weekly science comic

Swing by the Wellcome Collection, London’s museum dedicated to all things scientific and weird, and you’re likely to spot Robert Bidder in his uniform, a ‘stylish’ fleece and lanyard. A visitor experience assistant, Robert’s job is to look after the galleries, hold fort on reception, write and deliver talks and, in his words, “tell people where the toilets are”. But what you won’t realise from his cheery customer-focused exterior, is that Robert is also the genius behind the Wellcome Collection’s weekly comic, Body Squabbles. An exploration of scientific discovery ranging from topics like the senses, death and crisps, Robert’s work spans the awe-inspiring, bemusing and downright emosh.

Veroniqueleroy-vlfstudio-graphicdesign-itsnicethat-list Work / Graphic Design VLF studio's characteristic bold, clean and imaginative designs

VLF graphic design and art direction studio was founded ten years ago by Thomas Cristiani and Antoine Roux. Distinguished by its bold, clean and contextually sensitive designs, VLF has firmly cemented its name in the fashion industry. Thomas and Antoine first met during their university years in 2005 and started working soon after as a Paris-based art and design duo. Antoine moved to London four years ago, however, transforming VLF into a company with bases on either side of the channel.

Pitchforkfestival2018-alexaandjessicaviscius-graphicdesign-itsnicethat-list Work / Graphic Design Twin sisters Alexa and Jessica Viscius on creating this year's Pitchfork festival identity

The Viscius family must have some kind of brilliant creative ancestry. Twin sisters Alexa and Jessica Viscius are both successful creatives in their own right. Alexa, whose photography intwining graphic design we fell for recently is an art director at female run Chicago-based studio Normal, whereas Jessica is an art director at music publishing figurehead, Pitchfork.

Collins-graphic-design-itsnicethat-9 Work / Graphic Design What do you call a typeface inspired by Jim Henson? Kernit!

There’s not much we love more than a good pun here at It’s Nice That, so when we stumbled across Collins’ latest typeface, we had to find out more. Developed by the agency’s design director, Jules Tardy and its creative director Thomas Wilder, the typeface is inspired by the renowned puppeteer, cartoonist and filmmaker and mastermind behind The Muppets: Jim Henson. Its name? Kernit.

Yasseen-faik-graphic-design-itsnicethat-alt-list Work / Graphic Design "People, places and feelings”: Yasseen Faik's design practice is inspired by the real world

“Art is somewhere I take a lot of inspiration from. My grandmother was a painter,” explains London-based designer Yasseen Faik. “Before I went to university, I was reading books about various periods of contemporary art, from which I found a lot of inspiration visually and in the way of creative thinking.” With movements such as modernism, post-modernism, abstract expressionism, surrealism, minimalism, pop art and hyperrealism emerging as firm interests from his childhood of painting, it was upon starting his foundation course at Camberwell College of Arts that Yasseen began to focus on graphic design.

Jillsenft-treemendous-art-itsnicethat-list Work / Art Jill Senft pairs her fascination with trees and puns in new book Treemendous

Alongside her practice of painting wobbling characters into the funniest and most absurd scenarios, Berlin-based artist Jill Senft has developed a fascination with trees. In particular, it’s when a cluster of trees are horticultured together in an arboretum that caught the painter’s eye, thinking she would collect the different trees together in some sort of book or zine, “which I quickly found boring as it already exists,” she says.

List2 Work / Animation Paul Cabon confronts the inevitability of going bald via a surreal animated short

“Being a bald man sucks,” says French animator Paul Cabon in the intro to his animated film The Bald Future. “Knowing you’ll become one is worse.” A surreal and charming exploration of the inescapable combination of genes and time, the film takes you from Paul’s initial realisation of his eggheaded fate during a family meal consisting of entirely bald relatives, to outlandish fantasies of his thick-maned alter ego – a life that Paul will never lead. “I knew going bald was not such a serious problem,” Paul tells It’s Nice That, “yet it was really hard to get some distance and feel ok about it. I realised it could be interesting comedy material because of that – there was some tension behind it.”

Davidshrigley-art-itsnicethat-list Work / Art David Shrigley: "Question Time is like watching people having an argument in a pub"

David Shrigley is venting. I’ve asked him about the inspiration behind his new book, Fully Coherent Plan for a New and Better Society, and in typically humble fashion his first answer is, “I dunno, the usual stuff.” But then, he admits there’s more to it. “It’s kind of a political book, but a sociological take on it. More of an explanation of society. It purports to make sense, but it doesn’t. Someone told me the other day it was profound… and I said, oh, ok good.” Obviously, the title is ironic, he clarifies, just one of the book’s many jabs at the state of the world’s current affairs. “If we had a fully coherent plan for a new and better society we would’ve put it into action long before now.”

Folder-studio-film-itsnicethat-alt-list Work / Film Folder Studio's interactive documentary K-Town '92 highlights our "desensitisation to societal trauma"

The 1992 Los Angeles riots were a series of riots, lootings and arsons that occurred from 29 April – 4 May. The unrest began after the acquittal of four officers from the Los Angeles Police Department who were involved in the brutal beating and arrest of African American taxi driver, Rodney King. The riots began after footage of the incident was broadcast and widely viewed on television resulting in the most destructive civil disturbance in America’s history, totalling in over a billion dollars of damage.

Hedvigjenning-nand-itsnicethat-photography-list Work / Photography Hedvig Jenning's dreamy fashion photography creates and captures individual characters

Soft, pastel hues permeate Swedish photographer Hedvig Jenning’s work, whether it’s a fashion shoot for The Guardian or a body positivity series for Odda magazine. Her images are romantic and dreamy, but maintain a lighthearted tone due to subtle, humorous details. Hedvig grew up in a small village in rural Sweden where she spent her days watching films, reading magazines and listening to music. Popular culture played a pivotal role in getting her interested in photography and pursuing a creative career.

Richard-turley-publication-itsnicethat-list Work / Publication Civilization by Richard Turley is a "half newspaper, half support group" about New York City

“I went to BJ Magazines on Varick Street at lunch – one of the better places to get magazines [in New York], but somewhere I’ve been going less and less,” recalls designer and art director, Richard Turley, of the day back in January he decided to create his latest project, Civilization. “I walked around and it felt different from how I remember and I was trying to work out why; then it occurred to me that the reason it felt different was because half of the shop was now crisps and corn snacks. Maybe this change had been happening for some time, but it felt quite shocking.”

50-years-of-choice-publication-itsnicethat-list-alt Work / Publication 50 Years of Choice: a publication of 50 posters by 50 women discussing abortion

“Back at university after summer, Leah [Fredrickson] and I spoke about her recent abortion,” explains graphic design student Millie Tyler. “We spoke for a long time about the fact that abortion isn’t discussed openly. There are still so many issues around reproductive rights and bodily autonomy; there is a massive stigma which we wanted to address.”

Dominiquevine-dreamsarchive-graphicdesign-itsnicethat-1list Work / Graphic Design Designer Dominique Vine's type-heavy visualisation of dreams

Melbourne-based graphic designer Dominique Vine has gravitated towards the arts for as long as she can recall. Her years of creatively-minded projects is evident; Dominique’s portfolio is full of confident colour combinations, strong typefaces and considered compositions. “When I finished school I actually decided to enrol in a journalism degree,” Dominique tells It’s Nice That. “I regretted my decision very quickly, deferred after a semester and applied to communication design at Monash University instead. It was definitely one of the best decisions I’ve made. I finished my course last year but my love for design continues to grow.”
