The Conran Shop & It's Nice That
Since its foundation in 2007, It’s Nice That - the print, digital and event-based creative platform - has grown to become one of the industry’s loudest editorial voices, spreading creative inspiration to over one million individuals each month. Sharing many of The Conran Shop’s core values, through its innovative and considered approach to storytelling It’s Nice That aims to democratise design by sharing the industry’s most exciting and engaging work.
The fit was natural when the two brands first collaborated in the 2016 project ‘A Load Of Jargon’. Thanks to the success of that partnership, the relationship has continued, producing an on-going series of projects, product collaborations and events.
Signing up as a main sponsor in 2018, The Conran Shop supports It’s Nice That’s event series Nicer Tuesdays which invites four emerging creatives to present their practices to over 400 audience members on the last Tuesday of every month. With tickets selling out in seconds, it is well worth keeping an eye out for our upcoming events.
