Welcome one and all to the It’s Nice That podcast, our weekly hit of aural art and design chatter. This week we decide on the collective term for art directors, get stumped by Michael Bierut’s opening question and have an odd date-type section that weirds everyone out. This week we’re chatting about the new-look Wired website, and we discus IKEA’s new wireless charging furniture. We touch on the new Google HQ by Bjarke Ingels and Thomas Heatherwick, Leonardo di Caprio playing 24 roles in an upcoming film, Dunne and Raby leaving the Royal College of Art and the end of fashion.
In the second section it’s all about advertising, with a discussion about the enduring success of Wieden + Kennedy and how to set-up a productive creative culture. Tweet us, email us or leave a comment below to join in the discussion!
