It’s Nice That’s Preview of the Year 2020 series is an all-new guide to the next 12 months and what to expect from the world of creativity, a companion piece to our more reflective Review of the Year. Stories and opinion pieces looking ahead to 2020 and offering thoughts, insights and predictions on the future. This year, Elsa Müller from It’s Nice That designed the graphic material shown on their website. She worked with Johannes Schnatmann to create two linked but distinct identities with 3D-rendered compositions for the two parts of this series. The identities focus on embossing and debossing, and on materiality to create a strong sense of the past and future. As Elsa puts it herself:
“The idea was to express this duality of past and future through contrasting materials. We chose to make Review of the Year in a rather organic and softer universe, whereas the Preview of the Year feels rather sharp, reflective and shiny.” We’re also incredibly pleased to be using a typeface, Ambiant Sans, across both identities that was designed by one of our 2019 Graduates, Laura Csocsán.
The identities feature Ambiant Sans designed by Laura Csocsán, and custom lettering.
