We are excited to announce that Printed Pages SS18 is now on general sale. The biannual magazine is It’s Nice That’s curated view of the creative world from the past six months, packed with inspiring and innovative creatives from emerging talents to leading names of the industry. Underlying this issue is a theme of using creativity as a voice, a platform for discovery, innovation, unity and change.
This issue includes interviews with stage designer to the stars Es Devlin, graphic design duo Sagmeister & Walsh, artists Gilbert and George, pioneer of street photography Joel Meyerowitz, artist Eddie Peake, New Yorker cartoonist Joost Swarte, performance artist Tehching Hsieh, and designer/activist Anne Lund, creator of anti-nuclear symbol The Smiling Sun.
We celebrate the life and work of American Roman Catholic nun-turned-artist Corita Kent, and Pentagram partner Natasha Jen pens an opinion piece for us on the flaws of design thinking. Also don’t miss our feature Women at Work, wherein four international female illustrators at the top of their game – Malika Favre, Ram Han, Martina Paukova and Miranda Tacchia – candidly discuss their experiences and the industry over WhatsApp.
Our cover star is Edel Rodriguez, the Cuban-born, American-raised illustrator and activist whose magazine covers depicting Trump have become icons of protest worldwide. We spoke to him about going viral, which he has visualised brilliantly in the cover illustration showing a sea of eyes pointing his way.
All of the features are brought to life with vivid and eclectic illustration and photography, commissioned specially by It’s Nice That’s in-house creative team and executed by exciting creatives such as Hollie Fernando, Nina Manandhar, Thomas Hedger and Alice Tye.
As if that wasn’t enough, if you order directly from It’s Nice That’s online shop Company of Parrots, the magazine comes with a specially commissioned print by renowned illustrator Jean Jullien, and Nuclear Power No Thanks stickers by Anne Lund, plus five postcards featuring some of the best images in the issue by Manshen Lo, Grace Helmer, Roberts Rurans, Thomas Hedger and Dham Srifuengfung.
