Porta's Look!...It's Nice That

It's Nice That Issue #1

However much we love posting and reading articles online, there’s still no substitute for holding a beautifully printed object in your hands. Because of this we publish a physical incarnation of the blog twice a year, aiming to archive the most interesting posts from the previous six months as well as commission more in-depth features and interviews.

Although we recognise their importance, we’re not interested in simply adding to the reams of articles written by design journalists on subjects that have been covered before, instead we want to publish some more unexpected content written by current practitioners. We will be releasing the publication every six months and expect issue two to be released in October 2009.

Issue 1 will feature work from, among others Peter Callesen, Bryan Dalton, Karl Grandin, Happypets, Myoung Ho Lee, Oliver Jeffers, PES, Alex Trochut, Julien Vallee and Felice Varini. It will also include interviews with Jacob Dahlgren, Hort, Michael Hughes, Riitta Ikonen, Hugo & Marie, Andy Rementer and Roel Wouters as well as features by Andreas Konrath, Tao Lin, Rob Ryan, Stewart Smith and Ian Wright.
