Pretend to be Happy

Reading Time: 2 minutes Happy Monday, everyone! Last week, a delegation of Niceworkians went on an outing to the Design Indaba Simulcast here in Jo’burg.

Chris Carboni: Cruisr “All Over”

Reading Time: 2 minutes Blink and you may have missed it. After watching Chris Carboni’s music video for Cruisr’s “All Over” I had no choice but to hit the replay button.

Matthew Koma – ‘Wasted’ from Evan Spencer Brace on Vimeo. Directed and Produced by Evan Spencer […]

Bronte Music Video

Reading Time: 1 minute No doubt by now you’ve watched the lovely video for Gotye’s Somebody That I Used To Know (and perhaps seen some of the ridiculous spinoffs). It turns out that quirky and beautiful animation is a common theme in his other videos, too. Loving the range of styles and techniques on his YouTube channel – here’s […]
