The Graduates 2016, It’s Nice That’s annual showcase of the UK’s undergraduate creative talent, will be revealed this Wednesday 6 July at a one-off private launch event with the Graduates themselves in attendance.
The 14 selected graduates have been hand-picked from over 900 applicants by the It’s Nice That team. Representing the most original, innovative and exciting creative work in graphic design, photography, illustration and more, this super talented group shows just how high the bar is set for the UK’s burgeoning art and design industry.
Work by the final 14 will be exhibited at Downstairs at Mother advertising agency in Shoreditch this Wednesday evening, where the Graduates will have their work presented and celebrated, before being published on It’s Nice That in a day-long takeover on Thursday 7 July.
Join us on Wednesday at 6.30pm to meet the class of 2016 and celebrate with a beer. A limited number of tickets are available so if you’d like to attend, please RSVP before 6pm on Tuesday 5 July to email@example.com
