We’re excited to announce the Graduates class of 2017. Whittled down from over 1,000 applications, we are proud to introduce 11 individuals whose work demonstrates originality, high quality, great execution and real purpose.
Spanning photography, illustration, animation, art and graphic design, we think these brilliant creatives are destined for great things and we can’t wait to see what they get up to next as they embark on their careers.
It’s Nice That first launched The Graduates nine years ago, as a way to champion the best young talent coming out of UK undergraduate courses. Those selected each have their own profile on the site, you can see learn more about each graduate and see their brilliant work in the articles below. They’ll also have the opportunity to get help and advice from the It’s Nice That team and become a part of our creative network, as having their work travel to New York for an event courtesy of our supporter A/D/O.
On 5 July we launched this year’s Graduates at a private party ahead of the site takeover, held at Our/London vodka distillery in east London. On show was the Graduates’ work, where friends of the studio and people working in the industry came together to welcome the Grads, drink beer and eat pizza.
We’re so proud of our Graduates this year, and would like to thank everyone who got in touch with us to share their work. Congratulations to you all – time to celebrate!
