    One of Anthony Burrill’s prints for Free Desk Here

This week we looked at scaremongering claims that the creative industries could be ripe for automisation and we might all lose our jobs (booooo!), we celebrated Open Studio Club’s Free Desk Here initiative (hurrah!) and we found out that when Mad Men needed retro illustration they went to a 75-year-old British legend.& Then we mused (we love to muse) on The British Museum’s status as the UK’s most visited tourist attraction and had a quick scoot around the new Facebook redesign.

    Dinos Chapman’s recent album

Then onto something completely different we wondered whether Ai Weiwei’s rock album might be a good thing, following hot on the heels of Dinos Chapman’s recent musical bow.

    Sometimes on the podcast we have enlightening discussions about pertinent art and design issues, and sometimes we make silly puns. Well this week dear listener we tick both of those boxes with some terrific chat about magazines, Designs of The Year and ELCAF but we also take a few minutes for canine-based tomfoolery. Take that expectations!

    Fantastic podcast this week in which we discuss some art and design news including the new Alexander McQueen show at the V&A, a Tinder bot sensation sweeping over SXSW Festival, and how you can delve into the creative culture of a city when you are only there for a short while. Thanks to everyone who got in touch this week and for your kind words and a BIG thank you to designer David Pearson who submitted our opening question.

    Alright lads and lasses! The new-look podcast is back again with 24 minutes of art and design themed chinwagging for your delectation. We kick off with a predictably leftfield opening question from illustrator, artist and former It’s Nice That Graduate Edward Monaghan about the purpose of art and its future. Yeah we went there!

  7. Studio-audience-lemon_list

    Welcome to a rather exciting brand new season of Studio Audience. We’ve got fun new visuals by the talented Guy Field, a somewhat catchy new jingle from illustrator, animator and music-maker Paul Layzell, and we’ve generally had a little bit of a “spruce.”

  8. Main

    Do you reckon Ai Wei Wei might like a bouncy castle for Christmas? We do. There’s a whopping total of SIX people in this podcast including It’s Nice That Directors Alex Bec and Will Hudson, and boy is it hectic. In it we discuss the creative world in 2014, the year gone by and the one approaching us, and tales of Rob going to church when he was little. Sound good? It’s better. Merry Christmas from the whole It’s Nice That team, and we will see you on the other side for more Studio Audience!

  10. List

    Some things change, while some beat on ceaselessly, boats against the current and the Studio Audience podcast falls firmly in the latter camp. This week we looked at apparent plans for new-look, hipster-fied KFC restaurants here in the UK, we discussed the final instalment of Monument Valley and we discussed Tate Modern’s extraordinary new war photography show Conflict. Time. Photography, touching on this review from The Telegraph.
