Woha-architecture-itsnicethat-list Sponsored / Architecture How can we build “feel good” cities?

More than a manufacturer of city-friendly cars, smart sees itself as a concept born to shake up the status quo. The outlet for the brand’s message smart magazine, which describes itself as “a place for stories about visionaries and creative urbaneers, about projects and initiatives that help to improve life in the city.”

It’s a world which reaches far, far beyond cars. smart magazine has positioned itself as an expert on experimental urban architecture with a suite of articles on vertical gardening, a concept which frees up space in busy cities and has hugely positive environmental affects at the same time. Win/win! We’ve rounded up three articles from smart magazine, which will tell you everything you need to know about vertical gardening and why it has the power to keep our cities clean.

Space10 Sponsored / Architecture SPACE10 explores how the creative community can change the way we live

By 2050, the proportion of people living in cities will have risen to 70% – an intimidating concept that SPACE10, IKEA’s research laboratory, believes the creative industry needs to address. So during London Design Festival it will take over Shoreditch’s Protein Studios with a week-long series of events under the theme Exploring Spaces of Tomorrow. Under that, a top-notch roster of creative collaborators have been invited to exhibit, demonstrate and speak about how the industry can help build a more sustainable, meaningful and affordable living environment for an increasingly urbanised society.

Space10-ikea-itsnicethat-material-list Sponsored / Architecture Future living and design democracy with IKEA’s research lab, SPACE10

If IKEA can be credited with bringing design to the world, then SPACE10 has our future in its hands. Founded in November 2015 as an external think-tank for IKEA, the Copenhagen research lab is dedicated to exploring how humankind might live in the next few decades – information that is then fed back to IKEA in myriad forms. With teams researching and experimenting around three themes: Circular Societies, Co-existence and Digital Empowerment, the lab is far from the traditional model of a lumbering trend-forecasting agency producing unrealistic visions of utopia. Relatively small, with a core team of 20 and an evolving team of freelance residents, it delves into realistic possible futures for our society and then presents its findings in art and design projects that aim to engage everyone, not just board members.

Int_thomas_heatherwick_list_2 Features / Architecture Fear of a flat planet: Heatherwick Studio’s adventures with clay

“I’m not confident enough to know what to throw away and what to keep. I’m not a good ‘thrower awayer.’ I’d hate to regret not having kept something,” says Thomas Heatherwick, gesturing around his studio. “At least if you hang on to things, you can hopefully find that you kept the right bit.” We are sat at the heart of his King’s Cross office in North London. There’s an air of intense industry around us and the studio is engaged on an astonishing number of projects the world over. But today we aren’t here to discuss what the future holds, it’s what lies, quite literally, beneath us. On the floor below where we are sat is an archive of the studio’s work that comprises models, maquettes and ephemera that tell remarkable stories of invention, innovation and happy accidents. “I suppose I don’t think of it as an archive, I think of it as not throwing things away,” he explains. “That’s a big not throwing things away space. We do endeavour to try and make special things and if you are trying to do that, then the process would matter too. It amazes me how many people throw things away. Whether that is a deliberate rejection of anything that isn’t current, or it’s laziness, or a clever focusing of energy and resource, I don’t know.”

Bblist Work / Graphic Design Haw-lin Services and Tim Schmitt on their sci-fi identity for Berlin Biennale

Sometimes it’s the projects that never make it out into the real world that are the most fascinating. Without being watered down by rounds of client tweaks, you can really see the inner workings of a designer’s brain. Or that’s how we feel about Haw-lin Services’s concept identity for Berlin Biennale 9, which the duo just popped up on their site. Working on the projected with former HORT colleague Tim Schmitt, the typographic-led identity is a slick medley of sci-films and corporate culture. And, although unused, is an interesting musing on the role of corporate sponsorship in the art world.

Old-street-roundabout-architecture-itsnicethat-list Work / Architecture Winning proposals for regeneration of Old Street Roundabout announced

In 2019, the iconic 1960s roundabout in Old Street, London, will be entirely removed and a two-way traffic system introduced, creating a new public space. As part of the regeneration, Islington Council in partnership with the Mayor of London, Transport for London and Hackney Council asked designers to consider how the street could look after the roundabout is removed. Four winning concepts have now been chosen from a long-list of 39 designers which included Zaha Hadid Architects and Es Devlin.

Non-verbal-club-graphic-design-itsnicethat-list Work / Graphic Design Non-Verbal Club's typography-heavy, sleek identity for Teatro Nacional de São Carlos

“We like to look at our practice as a balancing act between rationality and emotion,” states Porto-based graphic design studio, Non–Verbal Club. Comprised of Joana Sobral, Susana Almeida, João Martino and Miguel Almeida, the studio recently utilised this balancing act to create a beautifully sleek identity for Teatro Nacional de São Carlos.

Rave--benkopp-illustration-itsnicethat-list Work / Illustration Illustrator Ben Kopp’s nostalgia-drenched personal work

Ben Kopp is a name which will be recognised by keen followers of The Smudge, Clay Hickson’s politically-charged monthly riso newspaper which came into being at the same time that Donald Trump was elected as President. The Philadelphia-based illustrator was commissioned by the paper back in September for a feature written by Mary Hirsch.

Iggyldn-silk-film-itsnicethat-1_copy Work / Film Iggy Ldn's poignant new film Silk reclaims the essence of the jazz era in the 21st century

Iggy Ldn is a progressive, forward-thinking artist. His earlier films Fatherhood and Black Boys Don’t Cry challenged preconceptions of masculinity in the hope to combat pervasive black male stereotypes. But for his third venture, Silk, Iggy looked back to the jazz era for inspiration. “I think of it as a time where people weren’t so aware of themselves; their appearance and behaviours were less calculated and they were more natural in their self-expression,” Iggy tells It’s Nice That. His latest film is an unapologetic reminder to appreciate the present moment during a time of Instagram likes and Snapchat stories. It captures a young black man dressed in various impeccable outfits against a backdrop of draping, white silk and is accompanied by a series of striking photographs

Brian-blomerth-list Work / Publication Brian Blomerth illustrates a journey to "surf discovery" even though he's terrible at surfing

“Surfing is fun but I suck at it,” illustrator Brian Blomerth tells It’s Nice That. “I can stand up but that’s about it, and that took two years of hard work in this wetsuit I got off of Ebay for $15. The wetsuit looked disgusting. A classic surfer kerfuffle. So yes, I’m a poser. A kook. It’s fun to admit it… I kinda wish you didn’t have to actually surf because my favourite part is honestly just sitting out there bobbing up and down like an idiot. Splashing around and turning occasionally. I had a funny incident with a fish that kind of inspired this whole little book.”

Untitled60 Work / Photography Photographer Sam Gregg shoots the true face of Naples

“See Naples and die,” Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe of Faust fame espoused in his book Italian Journey in 1786. Leaving behind his claustrophobic fame, his duties as Privy Councillor in the Duchy of Weimar and a long-term flirtation, Goethe, like many rich men of his day, travelled to Naples as part of a Grand Tour and found the city so beautiful, so opulent, that he knew that he would die without regret after visiting its shores. That and the fact that there was hella debauchery going on.

Nioikehai16list Work / Art Prolific artist Miroco Machiko’s animal menagerie

With distorted bodies, crossed eyes and friendly expressions, Miroco Machiko’s portfolio of animal illustrations is exactly the kind of zoo we can get behind. The Osaka-born, Tokyo-based artist and illustrator has an incredible knack for capturing the magic of the animal kingdom, her expressive brushstrokes and rainbow palette transforming even the most mundane creatures – moths for example – into glorious beasts.

Maxweinland-graphicdesign-itsnicethat-list-alt Work / Graphic Design Designer Max Weinland on sketchy news journals and his homage to the 1970s chopper

Max Weinland is an innovative Hamburg-based designer who has accumulated a wide-ranging portfolio. Max spends the majority of his time working as an art director at various design agencies as well as running the type foundry Riesling Type alongside Timo Durst. The rest of his time is spent freelancing, designing typefaces and teaching.

Si-weon-kim-graphic-design-itsnicethat-list-alt Work / Graphic Design Graphic designer Si Weon Kim's side projects explore her culture, creating historical homages

“Like most people now in their 20s, I was raised by the internet. I was manipulating images as soon as I got my first computer,” says New York City-based graphic designer Si Weon Kim. Downloading Photoshop at a young age, Si Weon began making covers for her burned mix CDs at 11. She has now developed a subtle yet accomplished aesthetic, her early interactions with the internet still evident throughout her work, stating artists such as Sondra Perry as an inspiration.

Have-heart-will-anderson-animation-itsnicethat Work / Animation Will Anderson’s Bafta-nominated animation Have Heart follows a gif stuck in an infinite loop

After earning a Bafta nomination and winning best short at the British Animation Awards, Will Anderson has released his film Have Heart in full online. It follows a beleaguered animated gif as he endures an existential crisis, stuck in a loop on the internet. Visually simple yet profoundly innovative, the animation comments on a world of infinite content and how we measure our own self worth via social media, all through the character arc of its protagonist, Duck.

Smorgasbord-wihayo-soju-dylan-griffith-alcohol-packaging-graphic-design-itsnicethat-illustration-for-brand-film-list Work / Opinion Looking east: how Smörgåsbord designed a soju brand to work in Europe and Asia alike

Earlier this month, Coca-Cola announced it would produce its first ever alcoholic drink, an alco-pop to be launched solely in Japan. The idea is to tap into the lucrative market for chu-hi, canned fizzy drinks given a kick with a local spirit called shochu. The world’s largest soft drinks company making its move into this sector is significant, and symbolic of many other western brands trying their luck in the Asian alcohol world where huge brands such as Asahi, Kirin and Suntory already have a presence. But how do you design the branding and packaging for a product aimed at a firmly established market on the other side of the world, as well as back home? Here to enlighten us is Dylan Griffith, co-founder of Cardiff and Amsterdam-based design studio Smörgåsbord, which recently collaborated on the creation of the first European-made soju, Wihayo.

002no_lone_zonelist Work / Photography The lonely claustrophobia of Adam Reynolds’ nuclear missile site series

During the frostiest days of the Cold War, the United States harboured thousands of Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles in a network of bases hidden underground. Although the threat of nuclear Armageddon is, for the most part, shelved (for now) and the accompanying arsenal is largely defunct, much of the infrastructure still remains, giving visitors a glimpse into the fear of living under the mad logic of Mutually Assured Destruction.
