It’s Nice That Presents The Graduates 2017.

The Latest Cohort of Top UK Art and Design Talent.

It’s Nice That has announced The Graduates class of 2017, its selection of the best young artists and designers in the UK. Members of the group will receive a special invitation to showcase their work at A/D/O.

The London-based design resource It’s Nice That has announced The Graduates 2017, its showcase of the most exciting art and design students graduating in the UK this year. As a participating supporter, A/D/O will invite members of the group to present their work in New York. From an application pool of over 1,000 submissions, It’s Nice That has identified young creative talent in disciplines spanning photography, illustration, animation, art and graphic design. Their skills are featured in a special edition of the It’s Nice That website, showcasing the range and ingenuity of their work.

The Graduates 2016 have already achieved tremendous success: Vera Babida has been nominated for a BAFTA award in animation; Ben Leonard joined Pentagram as a designer; Jennifer Zhang is now an animator for Moth; and Sophie Mayanne’s photographs have appeared in Dazed, Sunday Times Magazine, and Wonderland. Now in its ninth year, the showcase is also accompanied by a raft of features and interviews with the recipients, a party in their honor, and mentoring and support from the Its Nice That network.

A/D/O is a new space in Brooklyn where creative people can work, develop, and play.
