Welcome to the blog of Johannesburg creative agency Nicework. A fine selection of the best creative ideas, art, design and advertising.
We are big fans for Baltimore at Nice Work. It seems to be decaying at a spectacular rate…
The photoblog Urban Atrophy is home to camera-wielding urban explorers who are “addicted” to capturing decay. To bring you these images of abandoned asylums, breweries, silos, tunnels, jails and churches, adventurous buds Dan Haga and Dan Ayers have risked falling through rotted floors and being exposed to asbestos, “some really nasty mold,” and the law-enforcing authorities, in, around and in the vicinity of the Baltimore area.
Have a look at this cool pattern a day series on flickr.
The quick and simple doodles loosely repeat themselves in bright colors on the pages of her sketchbook. She claims there’s no theme, but look how complementary and developed they appear when presented in the context of a set.

The SACI, or The SA Consumer Initiative needed a makeover. Nicework stepped in to give this company a positive new look to help it gain favour in the minds of consumers.
We based the new logo design on the idea of a ‘stamp of quality’, which implies professionalism, quality and trustworthiness. This is how it came out:
We then rolled out the rest of the website following this design cue, keeping it simple yet still visually interesting.

Our old client pals Bluemoon were in need of a website overhaul. They wanted something dynamic and representative of their company culture and service offerings. Based on our extensive previous working relations, Nicework knew just what Bluemoon was after.
