Since April 2007, Will Hudson and Alex Bec have trawled the internet for great creative work and published their findings on their blog, It’s Nice That. In a “nice” online-to-print transformation, they’ve just published the first in a series of printed editions of the best of their posts…
“Although we recognise their importance, we didn’t want to try and produce another design magazine as they typically exist – we wouldn’t have done as good a job and that’s not where our skills lie,” say HudsonBec on the It’s Nice That website. “Instead, we want to publish an archive of the most interesting work with nice big images and a suitable amount of copy, a series of conversations with interesting figures within the industry, as well as publishing some more unexpected content written by current practitioners.”
Issue 1 includes work from, among others, Peter Callesen, Bryan Dalton, Karl Grandin, Happypets, Myoung Ho Lee, Oliver Jeffers, PES, Alex Trochut, Julien Vallee and Felice Varini and is available here for £10.
A list of stockists is here.
There are also interviews with Jacob Dahlgren, Hort, Michael Hughes, Riitta Ikonen, Hugo & Marie, Andy Rementer and Roel Wouters, and features written by Andreas Konrath, Tao Lin, Stewart Smith and Ian Wright. Issue 2 will be released at the beginning of October this year.
It’s Nice That is designed by HudsonBec in collaboration with Joeseph Burrin
