The folks over at It’s Nice That have just released their annual round up of the best art and design from the past year. The book features over 300 pages of artwork, interviews, graduates, and exhibitions. Oh, and it even comes with a postcard signed by one of the featured artists. Have a look inside the 2014 It’s Nice That Annual, below.
I’ve been invited to be part of a really cool conference happening March 20—22, 2015, in Barcelona (I’ve never been before)! Organizers of the Internet Age Media Weekend want to celebrate the randomness of Internet culture, and they’re bringing a really interesting mix of people out to be part of it!
Speakers include: Myself, Alex Bec (Director of It’s Nice That), Anne Bourgeois-Vignon (Creative Content Director at Nowness), Julia Kaganskiy (Director of New Museum’s Art & Tech Incubator), Katie Dreke (Global Brand Director at Nike), Filip Visnjic (Founder, Creative Applications Network), Eclectic Method (VJ/Remixer), Julius Wiedemann (Director of Digital Publications at Taschen), and many others.
I’m excited to be a media partner as well as a speaker at the event. There will be workshops, panel discussions, screenings, and I’m sure lots of opportunities to actually hang and become friends! If you’re interested in attending, or you just want to know more about it head over here.
I have been anxiously awaiting the release of It’s Nice That Issue #3 and the wait is almost over! Alex was kind enough to give me a sneak peek! This one’s got interviews with the likes of Milton Glaser, Tom Gauld, and Keith Schofield! And if you pre-order before March 31 they’ll toss in a print by Parra!
For some time now, I’ve wanted to put out a print version of Booooooom. That dream officially died last week when It’s Nice That Issue #2 appeared at my door. This book is as good as it gets! Grab it while you can, cuz the last one sold out pretty quick. Peek inside, you’ll see why.
