It’s that time of year everyone, so get into the festive spirit even more by joining It’s Nice That for our Review of the Year 2017 party! Taking place next Thursday 14 December, you’re invited to join us for drinks and merriment at The Printspace in Hoxton, London.
We’ll be celebrating some of the best work created in the past 12 months to coincide with the launch of Review of the Year 2017 on the website, which will see a series of monthly round-ups, opinion pieces, interviews, visual features and a countdown of the best performing stories go live in the lead up to Christmas.
Along with music and beers provided by Beavertown Brewery, we’ll be exhibiting some of the work we’ve championed this year on the walls of Printspace.
We’ll also be selling a specially commissioned poster by London-based illustrator Kyle Platts, who has interpreted the word ‘Nice’ for a limited edition print run. Copies of Printed Pages AW17 and other It’s Nice That goodies will be available to purchase on the night as well, to help with any last minute Christmas shopping you might need to do.
