Scamp magazine is a must-have item for any “art and fashion shiterati” (NSFW)

Scamp-publication-itsnicethat-18

In the late 1950s, a Playboy-aspirant magazine was established that delved deep into life’s big enigmas like “A Short History of Undress” and “How to Make it Big in Café Society”. Despite its undeniable contribution to literary culture, the publication was sadly discontinued shortly after its launch. The magazine’s influence, however, lives on in the form of the brilliantly hilarious and wonderfully tacky modern-day Scamp, which has just seen the release of its second issue. Run by Oskar Oprey, Jam Steward and John William, Scamp is a must-have item of any “art and fashion shiterati”.

“We don’t have an office or anything; Jam and I work on the layout in coffee shops and in our bedrooms. John and I have known each other forever and we’ve worked on loads of projects together over the years. Jam came on board for this issue and we love him,” Oskar tells It’s Nice That, to which Jam responds: “I’m glad to hear I’m so loved. Also if anyone wants to offer us a nice office with a view, we might consider it.”

Scamp takes its name from a Roland Camberton novel. “It’s about this penniless writer who’s trying to hustle money for a new literary magazine he wants to publish called Scamp. He falls in love with one of the contributors but doesn’t actually manage to bring the project to fruition, so I decided to step in and do it for him,” Oskar says. Scamp is, in other words, the righting of Roland Camberton’s wrong. From literary interviews that touch on the appeal of witchy-looking girls to unconventional, ghoul-themed pin-up shoots, Scamp is a carefully composed publication where farcical absurdity triumphs.

Issue two adopts the theme of gods and monsters and features writer Charlie Fox, musician, pornstar and Helmut Lang model Brody Blomqvist and explores the world of the late artist and doll-maker Greer Lankton. “I may be partial to a hot pink or acid green border,” Jam says. “I wanted each spread to reflect the story within each of the articles, so every page has a different inspiration and reference. I found myself looking a lot at the original Scamp, the goofy lad’s mag. I’m often inspired by poster designs, especially ones from 90s techno and electro raves, which are a personal love of mine. Sci-fi movies, horror films, anime and anything a bit queer also feeds into my design style.”

Yet Scamp’s aspirations extend beyond the page. The teams’s project “Where is Majela?” sees the three editors mobilise readers to identify and locate Majela Zeze Diamond AKA The Queen of Vagina. “What we’re trying to do is bring the Youtube star The Queen of Vagina out of retirement and sing a song about Donald Trump being a pussy grabber. We are really hoping to track her down and get her on board for Scamp’s third issue. It’s hard work! If any It’s Nice That readers have any information about her whereabouts please drop us an email at [email protected],” Oskar says. The campaign takes up an impressive three spreads in Scamp’s second issue. The first double page is made up of pink, red and blue banners featuring either #WhereIsMajela? in bold font or plasticine vaginas made by illustrator Margot. The two other spreads include a “Missing” poster of the “genderless free spirit, X-Factor contestant and Big Brother auditionee” and an eight point pussy plan.

Scamp is loud and vibrant, refusing to take itself too seriously. The magazine’s strength lies in its astonishing attention to detail; Scamp’s main fashion shoot, for instance, stars impeccably-styled models in luxurious silk suits with fish sliders for shoes. “I’ve never struggled to form an opinion and so the stuff I choose to create for Scamp is just a scrappy and genuine collection of my favourite things… like Oprah. I’m proud of how fantastically unimportant it is. A Scamp of no importance,” says John, the genius behind the fish-slippers. Yet, despite his humble sentiment, Scamp is undoubtedly poking fun at today’s tense political climate. Jam adds: “Taking down Trump is probably our bread and butter when it comes to importance points. I think all the people featured in Scamp are people who have something important to say.”

Buffalo-zine-7-publication-itsnicethat-list Work / Publication Buffalo Zine are back with issue 7 and it’s a fashion fiesta

Independent print might be thriving, but there are fewer magazines we look forward to more than the eternally shapeshifting Buffalo Zine. With every issue comes a complete redesign, the magazine bowing deferentiently to the theme that dictates it’s format. With past issues masquerading as shopping catalogues, home and interiors magazines and tabloid newspapers, nothing is quite what it seems.

“This is a magazine for anyone who wants to engage with, be inspired by or learn about the abundant energy coming from visual arts, fashion and cultural communities inspired by the spirit of Africa,” says Helen Jennings, the editorial director of Nataal. Established as a digital platform in 2015 and growing to include exhibitions and now its debut print magazine, the Afrocentric showcase champions the artists who are shaping new global narratives around the continent, via fashion shoots, long-form writing and visual essays.

“I was born in Rabieh, Lebanon and came to the US when I was five years old,” New York-based graphic designer Chantal Jahchan tells It’s Nice That. “Ever since then, I have been interested in the ways that language can be both a barrier and a tool for communication.” In a project that fully embodies this experience, Chantal explores what “modernity” might mean for Lebanon, specifically through a typographic and linguist lens in her publication En Route.

Listgen_image_01 Work / Graphic Design Wolff Olins on the tech-fuelled future of the humancentric rebrand

As many companies rebrand in a way that increasingly seems generic and homogenous, the way we consider branding needs to change, argues Chris Moody, chief design officer at brand consultancy Wolff Olins. Chris suggests that we have come to a pivot point where virtual reality, augmented reality and voice-activation are changing the way we define brand presence. A brand identity must now be an ‘intelligent identity’, that uses responsive assets, new platforms and technologies to create a conversation on a human level, and at scale.

2001-a-space-odyssesy-film-itsnicethat-list Features / Film "Something bold, something pure" – the 50-year long legacy of 2001: A Space Odyssey

When 2001: A Space Odyssey premiered on 10 May 1968 – 50 years ago today – it somehow captured the imagination of its viewers: an audience who was yet to experience footage of the moon landing over a year later. Packed full of lengthy sequences and free from dialogue or even sound, its imagery, directed by Stanley Kubrick, is tranquil to the point of being static at times. This combined with its understandably puzzling ending meant the film received mixed reviews from critics upon its release. Despite this, it quickly garnered a ferocious cult following and became the highest grossing film of that year: the only Kubrick motion picture to hold this status.

The legendary Rotterdam-based Studio Dumbar is known for some of the most iconic identities since its establishment in 1977. Its creative team has designed some of the Holland’s most recognisable visual identities, including rebrands for the Dutch railway systems, the Dutch government, Mauritshuis Royal Picture Gallery and the budget airline Transavia.

List4 Work / Animation Jun Seo Hahm’s animated characters straddle the terrifying line of cute and icky

In French there’s the term ‘jolie laide’, or pretty-ugly, to describe a unconventional hottie whose attractiveness hinges on a crooked nose or a scraggle of teeth. In Japan the phenomenon of kimo-kawaii (cute-gross) illustration has ballooned in popularity in recent years, with even Sanrio, the creator of kitsch queen Hello Kitty, getting in on the creepy character game (see Kirimi-chan, an anthropomorphic salmon steak). There’s something about human nature that means this intersection between sweet and weird, sexy and repulsive, really gets under our skin. And it’s at this oh-so-freaky juncture that the work of animator Jun Seo Hahm sits, waiting to lick your hand affectionately – or bite off all your digits.

Nicer-tuesdays-may-launch-list Regulars / Nicer Tuesdays Get tickets now for May’s Nicer Tuesdays

This month at Nicer Tuesdays on 29 May, we’ll be hearing about the graphic design for Wes Anderson’s Isle of Dogs, plus brilliantly odd illustration, inspiring publication design and how to Be More Pirate in our work and life. Get tickets now to hear from Erica Dorn, Sam Conniff, Kyle Platts and Offshore Studio at Oval Space.
If you stopped to admire the incredible graphic details in Wes Anderson’s Isle of Dogs, you were most likely admiring the work of Erica Dorn. As the lead graphic designer on the film, Erica was responsible for bringing together everything from the Japanese woodblock-inspired artworks to printed documents, product packaging and signage, which added beautifully intricate detail to the dystopian future world Anderson was creating for his canine stars. Erica will be showcasing her research, references, sketches, final pieces and behind the scenes snippets from the project.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. He’ll be joining us to share insights to his creative process, particularly for recent projects for the likes of Vice, Bloomberg, Zeit Leo and GQ_.In past lives, Sam Conniff was the founder of creative network Livity and media platform Don’t Panic, but recently he’s gone rogue with a new mission: to encourage everyone to "_Be More Pirate.":https://www.bemorepirate.com/ Born from research into the radical strategies of Golden Age pirates, his new ethos and book of the same name (with an added explanatory strapline “Or How to Take On The World And Win”) adapts these strategies for 21st Century work and life, and aligns them with modern day innovators or “rebels” like Elon Musk and Malala Yousafzai.Zurich-based graphic design studio Offshore is one of It’s Nice That’s Ones to Watch 2018 and with good reason. Founders Christoph Miler and Isabel Seiffert are behind the design of Migrant Journal, for which the duo created a bespoke typeface and visually arresting design. Politically conscious, sensitive and striking all at the same time, it sums up the designers’ capability way beyond their years. They’ll be telling us more about their recent work, and the aesthetic combination of Swiss design sensibilities and international influences that makes their work truly distinctive.
