It's Nice That presents Nicer Tuesdays
After a hugely successful Nicer Tuesdays series last year, It's Nice That are very excited to announce that for 2017 the event will be doubling in size and moving to Oval Space.
We have a top-class line-up of speakers to kick off the year too, with OK-RM, Jack Sachs, Linda Brownlee and Seetal Solanki joining us on 31 January.
Linda Brownlee, Jack Sachs, Seetal Solanki, OK-RM:
As co-founder of renowned British design studio OK-RM, Rory McGrath has worked with world-leading institutions, brands and publications alike to develop memorable and cutting edge graphic identities. These include exhibitions for The Met’s Manus x Machina, the identity for Moscow’s Strelka Institute, and Jack Self’s Real Review. Rory will be chatting about his recent work for the Design Museum’s opening show, Fear and Love.
With a flair for beautifully natural and atmospheric portraiture and landscapes, it’s no wonder Irish photographer Linda Brownlee’s list of clientele includes The Guardian, Vogue, Another Magazine, Nowness and It’s Nice That, no less. Linda will be sharing some insights to her process for commissioned and personal work, including her recent book I Zii.
Illustrator and animator Jack Sachs had one helluva 2016, hence making him one of our Ones to Watch 2017. From his illustrations for Bloomberg Business Week and Lucky Peach, to his animated characters for MTV and Maynards Bassetts, plus his recent Tate Britain “invasion” SHHH!, Jack’s bizarre, plasticine-like CG characters have become instantly recognisable. He’ll be telling us more about his favourites, and how he creates them.
As founder and material conservationist at Ma-tt-er, Seetal Solanki never fails to inspire. The material research consultancy she started in 2015 works on design projects of all kinds, bringing expertise in materials – from their aesthetics and versatility to their provenance and sustainability. She’s worked with the British Council as part of The Maker Library Network, plus retailers and other design studios, aiming to “bridge the gap between industries”.
