Itsnicethat_kontrast_timokuilder Work / Illustration Timo Kuilder launches Kontrast, an illustrated mobile puzzle game

Illustrator Timo Kuilder has launched Kontrast, an illustrated puzzle game for mobile that invites interaction with his works and “blurs the lines between game and illustration” he says. Featuring his signature clean-cut lines and block colours, the monochromatic artwork animates through interaction as the player navigates the maze of seven illustrations. The game was conceived by the Amsterdam-based illustrator with interaction design and coding by his brother Jurre Kuilder, developed independently as a side project by the duo, with sound design by Ambrose Yu.

List-people-on-the-high-sea-copy Work / Digital Donghwan Kam: the VR photographer shooting alternative angles to international news

From refugees reaching the Sicilian coast after turbulent Mediterranean crossings to protestors scaling Paris’ Place de la République following the Charlie Hebdo shootings, designer and photographer Donghwan Kam creates VR environments based on world-changing events. With a homemade VR point-and-shoot camera developed from sensors and a shutter mechanism, he explores these carefully constructed landscapes, capturing alternative images to the much-repeated photographs circulated by the international press.

Superhi3-digital-itsnicethat-list Sponsored / Digital How creatives are utilising emerging technologies to create new design paradigms

The ability to understand and move with the times, while progressing your work accordingly, is a crucial skill for any designer. With our lives increasingly dictated by the screens that surround us, the importance of coding and digital design is soaring. In a series of articles in collaboration with SuperHi, It’s Nice That will be offering insight into the prominence of this facet of design. Previously we explored why code is crucial to contemporary design, as well as looking at a new breed of websites. In our third and final article, we look to the future and explore how artists and designers are utilising emerging technologies.

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.

Oliviekeck-longdistancecaller-animation-itsnicethat-3list Work / Digital Artist Olivié Keck explores South African youth culture through a vibrant VR video

South African artist Olivié Keck’s latest project Long Distance Caller is a patchwork of digital tales about self-doubt, love, loss, regret and infatuation. The virtual reality video explores South African youth culture in the 21st century through the lens of the artist’s vibrant and dynamic aesthetic. “I relish loud colours, juxtaposing ideas, jumbled associations and subverting expectations. I tend to use a variety of mediums to estrange people from the commonplace narratives,” Olivié tells It’s Nice That.

Google-fonts-korean-graphic-design-itsnicethat-list-alt Work / Digital Google Fonts Korean becomes interactive by manipulating path data

Initially launched in 2010, Google Fonts is an online collection of fonts available for designers and web developers to embed on their websites, for free. Until very recently, the collection was unable to support Korean. However, Google has now devised a more efficient means of serving Chinese, Japanese and Korean (CJK) font files, which have very large character sets, resulting in large file sizes.

Listscreen-shot-2018-05-23-at-17.57.34 Work / Film Short film Krista demonstrates the power of drama to overcome trauma

From the horror of Weinstein to the strength of the #metoo movement, it’s been difficult to have a conversation about acting in the past year without the shadow of sexual harassment looming large. Tapping into this atmosphere, short film Krista by director Danny Madden explores the low-level threat constantly levelled at women and the empowerment that can come from reclaiming those experiences. The film tells the story of Krista, a high school student using her theatre class as catharsis. “The idea came from a combination of stories we’d heard from friends and that first point of realising that the world has teeth,” explains Danny. “It aims to show that helpless feeling of not knowing where to point frustration and anxiety, and how the theatre can create a space for releasing it.”
 
Peppered with powerful cut scenes between Krista’s performances and the emotional experiences she’s channelling, the atmosphere of the film is made all the more intense by its sound design. Foot stomps, claps and vocal exercises from the drama group’s warm-up were crafted into a rhythmic pattern which builds in momentum as the film progresses.

Robertrubbish-spiritussoho-publication-itsnicethat-list Work / Publication Robert Rubbish takes us on a hazy, illustrated day of the places and people of Soho

Illustration fanatics are more than familiar with the work of Robert Rubbish. London dwellers will be familiar with the sight of him too. Usually found in Soho he can be spotted in the cafes and pubs populated by a unique community, who in an area of consistent gentrification manage to hold on to its inclusive and historic personality.

Studio-moniker-digital-itsnicethat-list Work / Digital Studio Moniker’s collaborative painting tool turns the Earth’s surface into a giant canvas

We’re big fans of Studio Moniker here at It’s Nice That. Based in Amsterdam, the interaction design studio churns out project after project that continues to surpass expectations and its most recent, titled Painted Earth, is no exception. Launched inline with the opening of the Galileo Reference Centre, the project sees Studio Moniker creating an interactive, collaborative painting tool that turns the surface of the Earth into a giant canvas.

John_morgan_venice_biennale_2018_british_pavilion_island_identity_graphic_design_itsnicethat_list_2 Partnership / British Council: Venice Architecture Biennale 2018 Tales of the sea: behind John Morgan’s identity for Island, the British Pavilion at Venice Biennale

For this year’s Venice Architecture Biennale, the British Pavilion takes on the provocative theme of Island, with a bare-bones public space atop the building’s roof. Below, the building will sit empty of exhibits. Both the elevated platform and vacuous space below will host events throughout the Biennale’s six-month run, with a broad range of creative contributors interpreting the subject of Island in depth, so it was imperative the branding not interfere with this openness and diversity. It was a compelling task for designer John Morgan, then, to come up with a visual identity, and he laughs as he remembers the early meetings in the building’s void.

Pierluigimacor-photography-itsnicethat-list Work / Photography Photographer Pierluigi Macor travels to southern Italy to capture interesting characters

Since the release of his book Bowie, Texas earlier this year, Italian-born photographer Pierluigi Macor has stayed very busy. One particularly striking project, which was commissioned by SZ Magazin, saw Pierluigi travel to a small town near Naples popular with the local population’s elderly citizens. “We didn’t know anyone there so we simply decided to show up and see what might happen,” Pierluigi tells It’s Nice That.

Cause-and-effect-graphic-deisgn-itsnicethat-list Work / Graphic Design Cause & Effect's identity for Gi2018 embodies the character and presence of Glasgow

Glasgow International is Scotland’s largest festival for contemporary art, taking place across three weeks every two years. As a festival that places Glasgow in the international spotlight of the art world, it’s one that requires an identity which embodies the city’s personality and translates this on a global scale. For this year’s festival – Gi2018 – this responsibility fell to Kerr Vernon and Ed Watt of Glasgow-based studio, Cause & Effect.

Materialmagazine-publication-itsnicethat-11 Work / Publication Material is the magazine committed to female-identifying individuals

It’s difficult not to get excited about Material Magazine’s latest issue when it includes Nadine Ijewere, Hedvig Jenning and Osma Harvilahti among its list of featured artists. Characterised by its commitment to female-identifying individuals, Material cuts across disciplines like design, art, fashion, film and architecture to delve deep into and dissect a prevalent social issue. “The magazine seeks to unite bold visuals with an honest, no-bullshit approach to talking about women in creative fields. Even though we operate from Berlin and Vienna, we continue to collaborate with an ever-growing network of renowned international teams,” Kira Stachowitsch, the head of Material’s creative direction and strategy, tells It’s Nice That.

List03-list-img-template-2-up-portrait Work / Photography From sensuous fruit to mythical quests, Jacques Brun’s photographs are a masterclass in lighting

Whether the sun-kissed skin of youths in their prime or the petals of a dying flower, Paris-based photographer Jacques Brun uses light as both a structural and metaphorical tool in his image-making. “A photographer is a kind of hunter who tries to catch and control light, an untouchable pray, to speak about shape, time and feelings,” the ECAL graduate tells It’s Nice That. “This raw and precious material allows me to sublimate everyday things from life into a unique sculpture or transform anecdotal moments into timeless stories.”

Listmapp_a4 Work / Illustration Klas Ernflo’s illustrations for the Moderna Museet restaurant are a treasure hunt around the gallery’s collection

When wandering through Stockholm’s contemporary art museum Moderna Museet as a child, there were a couple of artworks that became permanently seared in Swedish illustrator Klas Ernflo’s imagination. Salvador Dalí’s surreally deformed portrait of William Tell, for example, particularly fired up young Klas’ creative juices, as did Frank Stella’s eye-boggling optical illusion Claro Que Si and Robert Rauschenberg’s Monogram, a sculpture that features a stuffed Angora goat that looks like it’s got its paint-smudged front end stuck in a rubber tyre.

Chloe-dewe-mathews-photography-itsnicethat-list Work / Photography In Search of Frankenstein by Chloe Dewe Mathews embodies Mary Shelley's "nightmarish vision" 200 years on

“I’m interested in the history of places and the human relationship to the landscape,” explains London-born, St Leonards-on-Sea-based photographer Chloe Dewe Mathews. With a background in fine art, Chloe spent four years working in the film industry before coming to photography as a way to “express myself in a much more spontaneous and economic way.” Now, through projects like Shot at Dawn which documents the sites at which British, French Belgian soldiers were executed for cowardice and desertion during the First World War, Chloe explores the parallels and juxtapositions that exists between humans and our surroundings.

Fourcorners-posterworkshop19681971-publication-itsnicethat-list Work / Publication "Excitement, change and hope": a poster workshop in a Camden basement from 1968 to 1971

Back in between 1968 and 1971 in the basement of a building a Camden Town, anyone who wanted to, or had something to say, could drop into a poster workshop. It was a workshop that voiced its belief of belonging to people, but also needing people too, in order to fight for them: “You’re the people. Use it,” shouts its promotional poster. The work created over these three years, half a century ago has now been pulled out of the archive by London-based publishers Four Corners Books, coinciding with a new exhibition at Tate Britain, marking 50 years since the protests of May 1968.

Michael-beirut-bookshelf-regulars-itsnicethat-4 Regulars / Bookshelf Michael Bierut shares the second-hand books which have "truly influenced" his practice

Having studied graphic design at the University of Cincinnati’s College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning, Michael Bierut has been a central figure in the design world as a partner at Pentagram since 1990. Throughout his career, he has amassed a client list including the likes of The New York Times and Mastercard, and notably created the “H” logo for Hilary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.

List_sophiejanestafford3 Work / Photography Photographer Sophie Stafford on shooting the Saharan desert’s largest celebration

To bring in the new year, the desert oasis of Douz in Tunisia transforms into an anarchic and event-packed four-day-long festival celebrating northern African Berber traditions. Featuring horse and camel racing, falconry, dancing and parades, it’s a visual feast as well as an important part of Tunisian heritage – a wonderland for a photographer keen to capture the heightened emotions of two worlds meeting.

Rade.list Work / Art Rade Petrasevic reimagines still lifes in his vibrant, large-scale drawings

Whether it’s Paul Cezanne’s The Basket of Apples or Caravaggio’s Basket of Fruit, we’re sure you’ve seen more still life paintings than you can name. But we’re also certain that you haven’t seen a still life quite like Rade Petrasevic’s interpretation of the genre. Rade, who lives and works in Vienna, decided to pursue art after leaving school at 14 as “there was no opportunity to study anything else”. The Austrian artist now spends his time reimagining and revising the traditional still life through his delicate and deceptively simple large-scale drawings of chairs, vases, flowers and sculptures.
