Now in its third edition, each issue pays tribute to a different African country, and the diverse range of creatives who inhabit it. The overall content of the publication, along with the design, is ultimately decided by the contributors along with the collective Klaym, a non-profit creative network founded by Rahel Arnold, Franziska Kristensen and Flurina Rothenberger who also publish it. With this, the magazine’s unique set up sees a whole new editorial and creative team working behind the scenes of each issue. Every element of the magazine becomes an authentic representation of each city, from the Côte d’Ivoire (where its founders grew up) to South Africa, where its latest, third issue is set. The magazine, founded by sisters Flurina and Sereina Rothenberger, came about as a way to question Western narratives surrounding Africa. “I’m convinced that the handicap of Western dialogue about Africa, not only in newsrooms but also in the cultural sphere continues to exist because decision makers don’t question their assessment,” Flurina tells It’s Nice That. “It’s an old Western habit of both superiority and impatience to take the talking stick instead of listening.” The latter, she evaluates, is a characteristic more pronounced among many Africans. They possess the “patience to hear each other out” and understand what a story is about and who it is for. Nice is a creative publication full of energy and just one of the platforms celebrating these unique voices. Developed by young people who are globally influencing style, culture and “the changing conversation around visual literacy,” this publication screams originality, reflected in its spirited design.
