Although they evolved over time, the first six issues of the It’s Nice That magazine combined snapshots of exciting creatives we had previously championed on the site with interviews and features which allowed us to dig a little deeper into some of the biggest talents working today.
The work section of Issue One featured Aleksandra Mir, Alex Trochut, Anneke Jakobs, Bon Bon Kakku, Bryan Dalton, Charlie Duck, Chinnychinchin, Chris Norris, Damien Correll, Felice Varini, Gneborg, Graham Rawle, Happypets, Henrietta Swift & Christopher Smith, Hey Ho, Inges Idee, James Houston, Jean Jullien, Julien Vallee, Karl Grandin, Katrin Schacke, Kay Rosen, Leandro Erlich, Letman, Lost And Found, Matt Stuart, Megaforce, Milk Matters, Modulorbeat, Myoung Ho Lee, Nepomuk, NODE, Pete Goldlust, Peter Callesen, PES, Richard Sarson, Rob Hunter, Ryan Waller, Scott Amron, Simon Elvins, Spamflet, This Is Sand, Thomas Allen and Thomas Keeley.
There were interviews with the inimitable Ritta Ikonen, graphic design legend Eike Konig, artist Jacob Dahlgren, illustrator Andy Rementer, photographer Michael Hughes, multidisciplinary artist and designer Roel Wouters, and New York super-agency Hugo & Marie. Tao Lin wrote about Nice, Ian Wright wrote about the effect Jimi Hendrix had on him as a young man, designer Carmen Mueck showed us her collection of miniature items, photographer Andreas Laszlo Konrath wrote about skateboarding, Stuart Smith melted our minds with some mathematical speculations and Rob Ryan showed us round his record collection.
