PR: Wigston Paper joins online design platform Nicety


Wigston Paper joins online platform Nicety that's redefining material discovery for designers

Wigston Paper is now available on a brand new online platform developed as a new way for creative designers and craft makers to discover excitingphysicalmaterials and processors for creative projects. The Nicety library brings together a curated and global pool of materials and processors, making the experience of finding the right materials and partners brilliantly simple. 

Kieran Dallow, marketing manager at Wigston Paper, said: "We chose to work with Nicety because the online portal aligns with our vision of giving the design community more selection when it comes to coloured papers. That's exactly what Nicety want to do - offer more selection, but also make selecting paper easier than ever before."

"We want every designer to know about the phenomenal selection of coloured papers we have available, which is why we are listing our Senses range on this platform, and possibly adding other collections in due course." 

Explaining the concept of Nicety, co-founder Sebastian Grenzhäuser said: "It all started after we experienced first-hand how frustrating it was to find the right materials and processors for creative projects using conventionalavenuessuch as Google,socialmedia,tradefairs, or spending hours on the phone or email for the right information. We learned that creatives are increasingly struggling to make sense of a busy materials market, and manufacturers, processors and distributors are looking for new ways to reach creatives who are increasingly digitally-native more directly and effectively. Nicety was built to address the rapidly changing needs of both sides."

"Created bydesigners for designers, our platform offersunrivalled access to all the vital information about available products, ranging from specific properties to Pantone colour matching. On the other side, material manufacturers, distributors and processors benefit from making their products and company more visible online, connecting them with audiences beyond UK shores, and introducing an extra channel to their offer with better ROI than traditional avenues."

"What's special about Nicety is our curated library consisting of only the best materials and processors from around the world,assembledbased on community feedback. Our partnership with Wigston Paper is another crucial step into this direction, and we're excited to be working more closely with the team going forward. Their new Senses Paper collection has truly impressed on quality, tactility and variety, and as one of the first bigger additions to our library this is an exciting range to watch, which we know will serve designers well."
