NICE Magazine: Issue 6

The latest NICE Magazine is out and available for download!  For this issue we have chosen “Stuff” as our theme, which is inspired by the coming festive season. We have carefully selected a great mix of design, illustration, advertising, art and design objects that we think stands out from the rest. This issue is definitely one of our biggest and best.

Follow these instructions to get your hands on one, it’s cool and free!

  • Download either a PDF version or a WWF non-printable version. It’s as easy as pie. The WWF version is better because you’ll be saving the environment. Ten points for you.
  • If you are not interested in taking the time to download. Read the magazine online here.


We did a Q&A with emergent South African photographer Leonard Miller, whose pictures are a sight to behold. We have an impressive list of illustrators for you to look at, including: Ben Newman, Caracrimen, Grand Chamaco and Denise Nestor. Kristian Kasi’s typography will definitely make you look twice, particularly because he is creating such epic work at the meagre age of 19. Kyle Tezak and Marius Wathne, astound us with their amazing graphic design, while Leah Goren adds some sartorial magic to the magazine with her beautiful textile designs. We also have some great industrial design on show, from Score & Solder’s one of-a-kind terrariums, to ceramic planters by Farrah Sit, an indoor croquet set by Romain Lagrange and great leather accessories from local design house Matblac. Experimental artists and designers, JAILmake, made us think outside of the box with their conceptual furniture design. Also expect some thought-provoking advertising and beautiful packaging design to round off this excellent issue.


Last but not least, we have compiled a Nicework wish list that profiles the things we would most like to find in our Christmas stockings – check out the teaser video.

Hokusai Manga

Katsushika Hokusai is one of the most famous Japanese artists from the Edo Period, who had a great influence on Western art. Hokusai Manga is a book that combines all 15 of Hokusai’s notebooks into a 970-page anthology that contains more than 3,900 of his individual drawings, paintings and woodblock prints. We would love to have it sitting on the Nicework bookshelf.

Agostino Iacurci

Truly amazing mural work by a talented Italian artist and illustrator Agostino Iacurci.

“His work is varied, from illustration to murals, from printmaking to scenography. As an illustrator he collaborates with local and international publishers, advertising agencies, companies, magazines and animation studios.”
