Parts of the Process — Art director Alistair Hanson describes how the latest Printed Pages magazine came together
As It’s Nice That’s printed component, Printed Pages is a biannual magazine serving up the website’s best and most inspiring creative work from the last six months. First published in 2009 under the same name as its online counterpart, it was reborn with its current title in 2013, and is now in its 14th edition. Produced by a team that spans creative and editorial, the issue’s 240 pages were put together with help from emerging designer Georgia Cranstoun, overseen by It’s Nice That art director Alistair Hanson, alongside editor Owen Pritchard. We talk to Alistair about how the design process unfolds – from kick-off meetings and photographic commissions, to concepting a boundary-pushing cover with a life of its own, by Venezuelan animator and illustrator Igor Bastidas.
