Filled with an awesome selection of work — It's Nice That #03

That’s nice, caring for the creative and their art is what the folks of It’s Nice That from London are doing with their valuable printed good. They create an archive of work of artists they feature on their website in a bi-annual publication. They give respect and put value to the work that it deserves and giving it as well a history that otherwise could get lost in the quickness of the internet. On top of this, most of the work they feature online actually is designed for print. Their meanwhile third issue has been sent out early April and for all pre-orders, they put a black and white print by Parra to it.

JB. talked with editor and co-founder Will Hudson about the linkup of editorial content using both channels digital and print, magazine issue #03 and sustainability of graphic design. The interview will be soon online. Until then, follow their daily news on the website and have a look at the goodness inside the mag right here …


The list of contributors, illustrated by Jo Ratcliffe, among them a JB. favourite: Geoff McFetridge (down, second form left). More work from him below.


Great interview with Milton Glaser, a dinosaur and part of graphic design’s hall of fame, mastermind of the ‘I Love New York’ logo, co-founder of the New York Magazine, talking e.g. about the responsibility and the requirements of a modern designer.


Dan Tobin Smith with a feature, telling something about the work for the Jay Z cover “The Blueprint 3”, actually the only cover that Jay Z has not appeared on himself.


The more “detailed” pages … here with another JB. favourite on the left page: JP Thurlow, redrawing magazine covers and “turning a mass-produced into a singular” again.


More superb stuff from Geoff McFetridge, transferring the written word into a drawing, then making a graphic out of it. A charming series called GRAPHICS VS. POETRY
