Esteban Ucros 1/1

Inbetween the white noise in this interview (for which we apologise), youll find the nice words of Colombian graphic designer Esteban Ucros, who dedicates his Popular de Lujo blog to painted advertising he finds all over the streets of his hometown Bogot.

Will Hudson 1/1

Almost all designers must have heard of the Its Nice That-blog, online since april 2007. We had a talk with co-founder Will Hudson, who started the blog as a personal visual bookmarking-space, because he was just bad with names. We think thats a valid reason. Wills partner Alex Bec joined in 2008, and since then the blog has grown into a company with a firm team of seven people art-directing, publishing and curating. We asked Will some spot-on questions about how they finance the blog, how...
