You can’t have failed to notice that Brexit hasn’t gone as smoothly as many of us would have liked. Back in June 2016 – when the world was young and it felt like we had our entire lives ahead of us – leavers and remainers alike hoped the situation would resolve itself quickly, effectively, and amicably.

Director and graphic artist Nicolas Ménard has done it again. And this time it comes in the form of a one-minute stop-motion animation, shot entirely in-camera featuring hundreds of miniatures for Mexican beer brand Corona. Arguably one of Mexico’s most recognisable brands, the film is narrated by Gael García Bernal and shows how Corona is intertwined in Mexico’s history.

Collletttivo is self-described by its members as “something we haven’t yet been able to define.” A type foundry built on an open source philosophy — where designs can be modified online by others — the collective is “an aggregation of people doing a variety of things that revolve around typography.” Established in 2017, Collletttivo started as an online type portfolio where its early members could share their design experiments. Since then, the group has condensed into a smaller but more active collective of seven Milan-based creatives working on projects, workshops and talks, not to mention several other designers who have released their typefaces on the website which are available to download for free!

From 2013-2018, Erik Brandt exhibited the work of well-known and up and coming designers on a piece of cedar board attached, by himself, to the side of his garage in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The self-initiated exhibition space, titled “_Ficciones Typografika_”:https://www.itsnicethat.com/articles/ficciones-typografika-behind-the-scenes, began as an invite-only project before being opened to submissions and rapidly grew into a “who’s who” of experimental typographic practice within the global design community.

Even the most ardent and hardened of southerners has to admit that Manchester is one of the UK’s great cities. Blessed with an amazing cathedral, an abundance of brilliant pubs and an immense cultural history, we’re always looking for an excuse to hop on the Pendolino from Euston on a Friday evening. Now we have another one.

When most of us think of family photography, we think of images imbued with nostalgic memories of warm childhood houses and an age of innocence. Photographer Charles-Henry Bédué uses this concept as a starting point for his ongoing series _The House of Happiness_, but instead of capturing the happy connotations of domestic life, he photographs the darker, somewhat disturbing corners of the family home.

There’s not much that hasn’t already been said of 3D printing or the predicted revolution that promised to transform manufacturing and put a MakerBot in every home. While the technology continues to evolve, with new applications like cutting-edge medical uses and building-size structures, it has yet to truly overtake industrial production in the mainstream market–though not for lack of effort.

At just 160 square feet, it’s a wonder the Los Angeles MINI LIVING Urban Cabin fits a bedroom, dining room, kitchenette, bathroom, and entryway atrium in service of “contemplation” all within the confines of its micro-cabin dimensions. There’s even a small rooftop garden crowning the Urban Cabin. Yet, the spatial origami realized by MINI LIVING in collaboration with Los Angeles architecture firm FreelandBuck assembled atop of the ROW DTLA for this past weekend’s LA Design Festival presents small space living not as compromise, but instead as an opportunity for ideas as expansive and transformative as the city it was designed to represent.

“Yishu Wang’s”:https://www.instagram.com/yishuwang/ photography is bound to make you stop, look, look again and finally admit that you have no clue what’s going on. From overview shots of hundreds of uniformed men dressed in red suits to Orwellian CCTV structures, Yishu’s portfolio is wonderfully disorientating. Based in Wuzhen, a scenic town near Shanghai, Yishu has worked as a top photojournalist in Chinese media for the past 15 years. His job has offered Yishu endless opportunities to travel extensively across China from large metropolises to remote villages, documenting what he sees as he goes. “Many viewers have told me that my photography is similar to literature in that the images seem to have plots. But when I was taking the photos, I wasn’t thinking about narratives. I was just relaxed and receptive to any scenario that came my way,” Yishu tells It’s Nice That.

The Sewn Timber Shell investigates the use of robotics and sensing mechanisms in combination with garment design and industrial sewing techniques to explore a new way of fabricating tailored wood structures and re-engaging with traditional craftsmanship. The related research studies traditional garment patterning and connection techniques still used in fashion today and re-interprets them in a new material context. Fabric is replaced by thin sheets of plywood, which establishes an altered relation between material pliability and stiffness and thus introduces loadbearing capacity to the novel material system.
