If there's anything that will put conversations about the future of print to rest, publications like It's Nice That put a colorful damper on naysayers with their sharply designed, ad-free production, now on its 5th issue. Founded by graphic designer Will Hudson, his project includes a London-based website, design consultancy and the magazine—all on the pulse of the future of visual communication and creativity as told through their often witty take on what makes it so "nice."
The latest issue, packed with 40 pages of artists' work, insightful interviews with talents like Erwin Wurm and Matt Pyke, also features the letter-obsessed typographer Letman and "ridiculously impressive" L.A. photographer John Divola.
This edition marks a new addition to the It's Nice That team, bringing creative director Alex Moshakis on board as the magazine's editor. Additionally, #5 marks the first time a color photograph has graced the cover, which shows Wurm's 2010 work, "French Police Cap."
As fans of their daily content, we always look forward to the latest tangible version of It's Nice That and the bigger stories they cull from the creative world. Past issues have included interviews with Neville Brody, Milton Glaser, Troika and Hugo & Marie—to name a few. Their ability to seamlessly blend future creative leaders with design legends makes for a compelling read for any culture vulture.
At five issues strong, It's Nice That is now offering a yearly subscription for the quarterly mag, which includes the next three issues of the magazine and three exclusive artist prints (which can also be purchased separately in their shop) for £30 for U.K. residents or £40 internationally. Issue #5 is also available online for £10.
