Bráulio Amado, Builders Club and many more design flags for Mars in exhibition at Space10

Design-museum-hope-to-nope-exhibition_illustration-jon-berkeley_cover-design-graeme-james_the-economist-cover-debasing-american-politics_itsnicethat Media Partnership / Graphic Design Hope to Nope: exploring the "pivotal" past decade of graphic design and politics

Contrary to its distinctly present-day focus, the Design Museum’s latest exhibition, Hope to Nope: Graphics and Politics 2008-18, started off as a historical retrospective. Curator Margaret Cubbage and designer of the show, GraphicDesign&’s Lucienne Roberts, discussed beginning in the 50s and 60s, but then Brexit happened. Then Trump. And what was immediately evident was the seismic creative response to global crises. “We suddenly felt there was an urgency to respond to this,” Margaret tells It’s Nice That. “How pivotal graphic design had become to political movements, and how diverse and rich and democratic it was.”

21-vdm-nightfever-%e2%88%8f-courtesyofbenkelly_list Work / Exhibition A Vitra Design Museum exhibition shows the hedonistic history of nightclub design

As many middle-aged men will tell you at length, clubbing ain’t what it used to be. Looking through the exhibits from new show Night Fever: Designing Club Culture, which is due to open at the Vitra Design Museum near Basel later this month, it seems (much as it pains us to say it) that they might have a point. Are you, for example, dancing in clubs under storeys-high Keith Haring murals or dipping in a Philippe Starck-designed pool or receiving party invites in mousetraps complete with a slice of cheese? No, us neither. And if you are, sort us a slot on the guest list alright?

Enlarge-your-memories-photography-itsnicethat-list Work / Photography Jamie Allan Shaw offers an alternative to the one-sided relationship between creatives and magazines

“A lot of my friends and colleagues who work in the fashion and photography industry have always felt at the mercy of the larger magazines, it’s a strained and one-sided relationship which frequently lets down the people who work hard (and spend their own money) to make their content,” states designer and publisher Jamie Allan Shaw. In response to the numerous stories of editorials being cut short in favour of a celebrity photographer or an endorsement, Jamie decided to offer an alternative in the form of Enlarge Your Memories.

Matterlurgy-art-itsnicethat-list Work / Exhibition Exhibition Silver Sehnsucht unlocks nostalgia's past, present and future

“Sometimes you can be nostalgic for what is yet to come. A strange feeling of longing for a future yet unknown," or so argue London-based curator trio Mara-Johanna Kolmel, Silvana Lagos and Rafael Schacter from the collective Approved by Pablo. That feeling is encapsulated neatly in the German word ‘sehnsucht’, a word which lacks clear definition in English but was termed by C. S. Lewis as “That unnameable something, desire for which pierces us like a rapier at the smell of bonfire, the sound of wild ducks flying overhead, the title of The Well at the World’s End, the opening lines of Kubla Khan, the morning cobwebs in late summer, or the noise of falling waves.”

Petersaville-unknownpleasures-truefaith-exhibition-itsnicethat-list Features / Exhibition “It’s pop culture that has educated this country”: Peter Saville on Manchester’s True Faith exhibition

“The influence of this is in everything,” says Peter Saville gesturing at his sleeve designs for Factory Records, alongside a wealth of work inspired by Joy Division and New Order. “It transcends music completely. It’s in every gallery you go to, it’s in every fashion collection, the influence of this,” he says again looking around him, “has spread through everything.”

Max-miechowski-photography-itsnicethat-list Work / Photography Max Miechowski's adept observations of light create honest and intimate portraits

At the age of 25, Lincoln-born photographer Max Miechowski quit his job to go travelling around south-east Asia with a group of friends. It was there that he began photographing en masse: “being in new and beautiful places, and experiencing different cultures, it felt really natural for me to photograph everything around me,” he recalls. Finding himself travelling to places specifically to photograph them, getting up early to capture the best light and take peoples’ portraits, he cut his trip short and returned to England, using the money he had left to buy a better camera.

Cover-stories-chris-clarke-list Regulars / Printed Pages Cover Stories: The Guardian's Chris Clarke on the magazine covers that influenced him and his work

In the run-up to the release of Printed Pages SS18, we’ve asked a selection of influential people in creative publishing to choose the seminal magazine covers that they loved, and made an impact on them and their work. The magazines could be from any time, place or niche of the publishing world. In this series, they’ll tell us why these particular covers left a lasting impression.

Charlotte-wales-kukeri-publication-itsnicethat-list Work / Publication Charlotte Wales and Chopova Lowena combine 80s wrestling and Bulgarian folklore in Kukeri

Fusing 80s wrestling culture with Bulgarian folklore might not be everyone’s idea of a good time, but by golly, it looks good on paper. Fashion photographer Charlotte Wales has collaborated with recent Central Saint Martins graduates, Chopova Lowena, to release a new book that combines just those two things – along with the designers’ latest collection.

Pitch_studios_-_mood_machine_-_digital_-_itsnicethat_-_01 Work / Digital Pitch Studios creates mesmerising, immersive digital experiences which invoke unique moods

A breathtaking recent project from future-forward thinking Pitch Studios has caught our eye and captured our mood. Back in May, the Australia-based studio collaborated with New York artist Matthew Keff and Melbourne music producer Lewis Cancut to create a mesmerising, immersive digital experience, Mood Machine, exploring the emotions induced by modern technologies.

Nicer-tuesdays-kyle-platts-list Regulars / Nicer Tuesdays Kyle Platts explains why teaching himself to animate was valuable to his practice

There’s no mistaking the handiwork of illustrator and animation director, Kyle Platts. Vivid and cartoonish compositions filled with strange, wobbly characters, their ballooned foreheads in profile bearing enlarged eyes, are his forte, and a long-time favourite of the It’s Nice That team. Here, he speaks about his recent dabblings in animation and the increasing desire to make his characters move, making utterly brilliant and hugely popular gif artworks.

Sarah-pannell-itsnicethat-list Work / Photography Sarah Pannell’s photography captures the places where people and landscapes interact

From candy-coloured Australian suburbia to sushi menus in Japan and carpet picnics in Iran, Melbourne-based photographer Sarah Pannell has an innate knack for presenting scenarios which tantalise our metaphorical tastebuds.

Cecile-legnaghi-graphic-design-itsnicethat-list Work / Graphic Design Graphic designer Cécile Legnaghi questions the role of display and caption fonts in her practice

“The project was born from questioning the use of a typeface today, and its trends, especially concerning its body size,” explains Paris-based graphic and type designer Cécile Legnaghi of her diploma project. While studying at École Estienne, she became fascinated by designers’ choices to utilise display typefaces at caption size – and vice versa. In response, Cécile set out to design three of her own, with the intention of them being used in both contexts.

Polinavasilyeva-graphicdesign-itsnicethat-list Work / Graphic Design Yale graduate and communications designer Polina Vasilyeva is a conductor of content

The portfolio of Russian-born Yale graduate Polina Vasilyeva is an amalgamation of communication design bits and bobs. The mix of styles and applications Polina dips and dives in and out of is easily seen on the designer’s website, which places them all together, on top of one another and side by side. “My website came from the initial desire to see the collection of my work as if it were laid on the table in front of the viewer,” Polina tells us. “A lot of my work as a designer deals with the performance, I believe that graphic design is a form of theatre, in which the designer is a conductor of the content that is being presented to the world.”

Tom-ordoyno-itsnicethat-list-3 Work / Photography Tom Ordoyno's diverse photography captures moments we might otherwise miss

“The only real process [I have] is the camera and the darkroom,” London-based medium-format photographer Tom Ordoyno tells us, wryly. “In terms of taking pictures, I try to forget everything. Engage with what’s in front of me, and try to communicate an idea in the fewest steps.”

Robert-darch-photography-itsnicethat-list Work / Photography Robert Darch explores identity and nostalgia through the fictitious town of Durlescombe

In 2008, Birmingham-born photographer Robert Darch moved to Exeter, Devon in the south west of England. In that decade, the area would come to shape the geographical context of Robert’s work, of which the series Durlescombe is a large part. An ongoing project, Durlescombe tells the story of a fictional, yet altogether typical Devonshire village, through documentary photography, Robert’s own family photos and found illustrations.

Daly-and-lyon-flavien-menu-publication-itsnicethat-list-alt Work / Publication Daly & Lyon designs binary graphic system for New Commons For Europe

On 23 June 2016, the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union. On the same day, architect Flavien Menu opened an exhibition titled Oracles for Europe which presented the results of a year-long programme – of the same name – he had been hosting alongside Peter Swinnen with 12 students.

Mullenlowe-novaawards-miscellaneous-itsnicethat-2list Sponsored / Miscellaneous It's Nice That's Ali Hanson on judging this year's CSM degree shows for the MullenLowe NOVA Awards

What do Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney, Jarvis Cocker, M.I.A and Antony Gormley have in common? Other than being internationally celebrated creatives, each of these big names was at one point a student at London’s world-renowned art, design and performance college, Central Saint Martins. With its long list of impressive alumni, it’s no surprise that the school’s annual degree shows attract a flock of art critics and culture journalists who seek to champion the school’s latest promising artists. 

Poster-2 Work / Printed Pages Jean Jullien visualises the quirks of the British accent for the new Printed Pages poster

From a gruff Glaswegian growl to an Essex wide boy’s clipped vowels, we’ve got some damn good accents here in the UK. These peculiarities of pronunciation are something that has fascinated illustrator Jean Jullien ever since he first moved to the UK from France and was his inspiration when creating the poster you’ll find in the new issue of Printed Pages, which you can get your mitts on now.
