In this visual tour of her work, she tells the story of three cities she transformed into playgrounds of the imagination — picture London with a giant mechanical elephant marching through it — and shows what happens when people stop to marvel and experience a moment together.

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.

With great visuals, TED Fellow and NASA economist Alexander MacDonald shows how 300 years of sci-fi tales — from Edgar Allan Poe to Jules Verne to H.G. Wells and beyond — sparked a culture of space exploration. A fascinating look at how stories become reality, featuring a goose machine sent to the Moon.

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!

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.

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.
