Welcome to the blog of Johannesburg creative agency Nicework. A fine selection of the best creative ideas, art, design and advertising.
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.

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.

L’Emile et Son is a lifestyle store unlike any other in South Africa. Nicework was invited to collaborate and design an ecommerce website that would showcase and sell the store’s selection of innovative products.
Using the dandelion motif to inform our design, we created this whimsical, yet highly functional online shopping site.

Heavy engineering firm DCD needed a new name and consolidated brand identity under which to house their different business divisions. The new brand had to be simple, distinct, identifiable from a distance and versatile in application. Nicework, being the branding pros that we are, stepped up to this weighty challenge.
To get our thinking going on the right tracks, we visited sites and immersed ourselves in the world of heavy engineering. The resultant design became known as ‘The Boiler Plate’ and formed the basis for the rebrand.
This bold, easily legible logotype was then applied across all the divisions of the company. We used colour to give each division its own sub-identity.
The cut off corner became a holding shape for all the design material we created, and one the client could own as a unique feature of their brand identity.

Yay, another installment of what we’ve been up to lately (besides curating this brilliant blog).
Enginuity is in the business of putting other businesses online. Their custom ecommerce platform empowers brick-and-mortar businesses to move seamlessly into the online shopping arena. Nicework was given the task of developing a company name, logo, brand identity and website.
This is what we came up with…

Kingsbourne, a multi-disciplinary team of highly skilled conflict resolution specialists for the construction industry, needed something to show for themselves: a swanky website and luxe business cards to be precise. Nicework came to the party to deliver highly personalised, bespoke site and card designs that reflect not only the company, but the individuals who are so central to its success.
Ever wondered what the internet actually looks like? Most of us use the internet every single day, but it’s more an ubiquitous presence than a tangible entity. Despite this, the internet actually has a ‘face’ so to speak, and this is what “one of the most powerful server networks in the known universe” (Google) looks like:
