Swiss designer and teacher Alice Franchetti talks to us about her clean, precise portfolio of well-researched projects.
For a few weeks now, the It’s Nice That studio – and we’re sure the studios of others involved in the worlds of publishing, design, fashion, or anything creative really – has been abuzz with the news that _The Face_, the iconic British style magazine that redefined youth culture, is coming back. Today, the creative team behind the relaunch has been announced.
You can’t have failed to notice that Brexit hasn’t gone as smoothly as many of us would have liked.

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.

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.
