Although they evolved over time, the first six issues of the It’s Nice That magazine combined snapshots of exciting creatives we had previously championed on the site with interviews and features which allowed us to dig a little deeper into some of the biggest talents working today.
The work section of Issue Six featured Ann Woo, Anna-Wili Highfield, Assemble, Brian Nuda Rosch, Dallas Clayton, Eske Rex, Encyclopedia Pictura, Federico Yankelevich, Ill Studio, Paul Wackers, Quentin Dupieux, Romulo Celdran, Stephan Tillmans, Studio Weave, Tom Phillips, Travess Smalley, William Goldmsith and Xavier Antin.
There were interviews with magazine design legend George Lois, the father of conceptual art Lawrence Weiner, Danish photographic manipulator Asger Carlsen and east London-based gallerist Kate MacGarry, as well as a curated conversation between designer Martino Gamper and artist Francis Upritchard.
Animator Mikey Please revealed his love of imperfection, photographer and publisher Nicholas Gottlund showed us his studio and illustrator Marion Deuchars gave us an insight into her favourite five books. Writer Lucia Davies profiled artist Keith Haring while curator and writer Virginia Whiles celebrated artist Shelagh Cluett, publisher, designer and writer David Bennewith wrote about New Zealand modernism; photographer Carl Kleiner explored the golden ratio and musician Chaz Bundick (aka Toro Y Moi) welcomed us into his family home.
