We’re very excited to introduce you to the first global Graduates class of 2018!
With more applications than we’ve ever had and entrants from North America to New Zealand via Sweden, we were bowled over by the ridiculously high talent spilling out of universities across the world this year. Below, we share our final 15 graduates, each carving out their own path with work displaying vibrant personality across photography, product design, illustration, fashion, animation and graphic design.
It’s Nice That initially launched The Graduates ten years ago, hunting for the greatest young talent from the UK’s undergraduate courses. Since then, The Graduates has grown in both applicants and reach, and a decade on from when it first launched, the creative landscape — and It’s Nice That along with it — has changed immeasurably.
In the current state of affairs where borders and communities are increasingly divided by forces beyond our control, we want It’s Nice That to be as open as possible, to be inclusive of everyone no matter what age, race, gender or location. We write about creatives from all over the world on a daily basis, so we threw the logistical reasons for keeping The Graduates UK-based out the window and opened it up globally.
It goes without saying that it has been more than worth it.
We’re immensely proud of our Graduates this year but whittling the applications down was by no means an easy process. We’d like to thank everyone who shared their work with us. A massive congratulations to anyone who has graduated this year — hats off to you guys from the It’s Nice That team!
