onedotzero: It's Nice That

The acclaimed blog and quarterly magazine It’s Nice That curate, publish and direct the best work from across the creative industries. As part of the onedotzero_adventures in motion festival, they presented a live version of the magazine at BFI Southbank, leaping off the page and onto the stage and screen.

Graphic designer Robert Matthews presents his graduation project where, taking inspiration from the quote "For every prohibition you create, you also create an underground" he imagined a world where the internet is banned. He created an object that pokes fun at our reliance on the web by demonstrating just how bizarre physical alternatives to the cyber world would be. Johnny Kelly, a graphic artist turned animator talks about the transition from doing illustrative work to making short movies. A background in comic books meant he was used to dealing with narratives in pictures so it felt a natural next step once he became frustrated with his tendency to overload images. Introducing time and movement to his work allowed the ideas to breathe. Roel Wouters is a graphic designer/director who presents a short piece on an ambitious project to redefine graphic design. He explains that he and his colleagues formulated the 'Conditional Design Manifesto' which dramatically shifts the focus from end results to processes. Projects become the challenge of designing conditions to spark a process so that the design becomes a function of collaboration and the environment.
