To celebrate three decades in the field of healthcare technology, MEDITECH South Africa wanted something truly special. Nicework took on this challenge, and came up with the idea of ’30 years: 30 stories’.
This idea translated into fun, colourful icon artworks, which tell the stories of how Meditch has impacted the lives of everyday people.
For the event, we curated an innovative exhibition to showcase these stories and celebrate the company’s great achievements.
We also created a website, which continued the line-dot design style we developed for the event branding. You can see the website in action here.

The latest NICE Magazine is out and available for download! We know that it has been a while in the making, but with a new editor at the helm, we’re excited to be back on track and working hard to create the best possible magazines for you to enjoy.
The theme of our 9th issue is “Collaboration”. In it we’ve explored exceptional creative work that spans a wide and diverse range of media. In the spirit of collaboration, we got all the members of the Nicework team involved. From submitting visual features, to drawing exquisite corpses, to submitting songs for a mix-mash mixtape (look out for the broadcast happening right here on Nicework Ramble soon), everyone added their bit. We think it’s made for an exciting magazine.
Follow these instructions to get hold of your copy, it’s awesome and free!
- Download the PDF. It’s as easy as pie.
- If you are not interested in taking the time to download. Read the magazine online here.
Here’s the great local and international content you can expect to see in this issue on NICE:
On the local front we have an in-depth feature on Johannesburg wunderkinder team Jana+Koos, as well as a showcase of the new Pretoria creative hub Die Moederskip. We then hear from post-everything band The Brother Moves On, and learn how Michel Gondry’s Home Movie Factory was brought to life in Joburg. We also shine the spotlight on a great analogue community project called Film Swap happening in Cape Town, as well as team up with Invisible Cities Pirate Radio to collaborate on our very own mixtape!
From further afield, we are very pleased to be able to share the story of talented Australian brothers, Tom and James, in an insightful interview. Then ALSO, the creators of the book everyone’s going “ooh aah” about The Where, the Why, and the How share some thoughts on collaboration. We also feature a global photographic project called The Disposable Memory Project, and hear from two creative ladies who’ve teamed up for a collaborative ceramic exhibition called Moo Moo Woof Woof.
We sincerely hope you enjoy!

We thought it just fabulous that we were the ones chosen by Bluemoon to design a presentation for retail fashion giant, Edgars.
Taking our style cue from the snazzy new look and feel of the Club Magazine, we created beautiful infographics that communicate complex advertising info simply, and slide transitions that look like turning pages.
