It’s Chrrrrrriiiiissssstttttmmmmmaaaaaasssssssss! Ok it’s not really, but there are certain milestones that begin the countdown to the festive season and in our own small way we hope the arrival of the It’s Nice That Annual is one of them. Designed this year by the excellent Studio Makgill, the Annual is back and it’s bigger and better than ever before.
Once again we’ve put together a curated snapshot of creative brilliance from the past 12 months, celebrating the people and the projects which have rocked the art and design world. We’ve selected the most exciting and engaging work to have appeared on itsnicethat.com in the past year, with 130 projects spanning graphic design, illustration, photography, art, product and furniture design, advertising, publishing and fashion.
We also take a look at our 15 brilliant Graduates from 2014, the most jaw-dropping exhibitions of the past 12 months and the magazine covers that caught our eye during the past year. And for the first time ever we’ve got 50 profiles of figures who’ve had massive years – from Jessica Walsh and Paul Smith to Agi & Sam and Jean Jullien – to discover their creative highlights, professional triumphs and personal accomplishments.
And, and, each Annual comes with a postcard of a piece of work in the book signed by the artist themselves! It comes out in the second week of December so pre-order your copy now for £35 and get free UK postage and packaging for a limited time only. If that doesn’t leave your aunts giddy, we don’t know what will.
