Printed Pages is our new magazine, building on our previous print projects to deliver art and design coverage that is accessible, upbeat and engaging. The publication is all about depth and discovery, focussing on unusual and unexpected creative stories and finding new ways of discussing established practitioners. With a price point of just £4 we hope to produce a publication that marries top-quality content with the design values we have long been associated with. The first issue, released in Spring 2013, included interviews with Chris Ware, Sagmeister & Walsh and Apartamento’s Omar Sosa plus features on toy illustrator Jon Goode and Barcelona’s graphic design resurgence.
The first ever It’s Nice That Annual was published in December 2012, bringing together some of the most exciting and engaging work we came across in the preceding 12 months. Spanning art, photography, graphic design and illustration (plus a few other bits and pieces that caught our eye in 2011/12) The Annual’s 264 pages also included a look at our Graduates class of 2012, a round-up of some of the year’s best exhibitions and a selection of our Bookshelf feature illustrated by Oscar Bolton Green. With a bespoke cover illustrated by Parra the limited-edition 1,500 print run sold out in just a few weeks, a fantastic start for what will be a yearly project for us going forward. Roll on 2013!
