This is the stationary design for N. Daniels, a rep and photo producer in Vienna, designed by Bureau Rabensteiner. It’s simple, cool and thermo sensitive. The black color of the varnish fades at body temperature – as soon as you hold it in your hands you literally produce an image by yourself. It’s a dynamic and living design – the business cards are little polaroids with a constantly changing surface.
One of my favourite artists, Gary Baseman has recently launched his lastest exhibition titled The Door Is Always Open. This is a literal door to his childhood home which allows you get to know his family, his art, his characters, and see everything that makes Gary Baseman who he is. The show consists of a series of seven rooms that are made to resemble his house, each room has a theme too and is dedicated to an aspect that has helped develop him. At the opening of the exhibition, Baseman hosted a “House Party” in the museum which was filled with all his unique characters wandering around interacting with his guests.
To read more about the show and see more images, visit Los Angeles I’m Yours.

I have only been to New York once in my life and would love to go back every year for the rest of my life… Michael Surtees is a great man to follow if you want to get a small piece of the New York life. Michael tries to explore people’s daily experiences and observations with design. He started an intersting company Gesture Theory which it seems is now sadly closed. You can also see his rambling at design notes. He runs a wonderful hashtag #walkingtoworktoday where he photographs the city of New York while walking to work (we South Africans only dream of that). He has a keen eye for detail and typography. You can follow him on twitter of instagram. Enjoy.

We here at Nicework are huge fans of anything remotely doggie-related. (Okay, maybe that’s just me). Either way, have a look at this lovely collaborative papercraft project.
Back in 2009 British design studio Lazerian created a papercraft model kit of their dog mascot, Gerald. Two years later, the studio launched the Gerald Project, a collaborative art project in which they invited more than 100 artists and designers to design custom editions of the papercraft dog. The colorful collection of custom Geralds can now be purchased on Lazerian’s website. They will also be the subject of an art book that will be released at an exhibition of the project, May 17 to 19, 2013 at 60 Reade in New York City.

Meet Kyle Platts. A freelance illustrator living in London. He has an awesome style and his comics tend to be funny or inappropriate or both, either way, I thoroughly enjoy everything he does. Enjoy!
This film is based on the true story of Shepard Fairey’s first act of street art during his time at Rhode Island School of Design from 1989-1992 and directed buy Julian Marshall.
Fairey created the “André the Giant Has a Posse” sticker campaign in 1989, while attending the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), the Obey Giant was intended to inspire curiosity and cause the masses to question their relationship with their surroundings. (read more here)
