I hate morning people

Chaywa wanted to tout the qualities of its coffee (i.e it makes you a morning person). So I paired an irritable curmudgeon with a chipper young go-getter and this is what came out. Very professional voice-over artists and the generous help of a Creative Director made it work

What to do when (yes, when) you win the lotto

Many of us have romanced the idea of winning the lotto. The fantasies that follow are usually vivid and specific: luxury cars, extensive travelling and beachside property tend to feature prominently.

A City Without Billboards

Imagine taking a stroll to your nearest park and not being assailed by the sight of a celebrity trying to sell you xyz cream or an airbrushed model wearing the latest jeans.

Windhoek Lager Ambassadors

Windhoek Lager Ambassadors was an outreach programme that recognises extraordinary Namibians for their contribution to that country. The programme lasted seven months and each month three nominees were picked by the public (and judges) in different categories. We produced 21 short interviews with all the nominees, in addition to posters, radio ads, Facebook apps, mobile solutions and other collateral. The programme culminated in a gala event, attended by the Namibian Prime Minister and other dignitaries, to celebrate the winners.

Open roads, fresh country air and a lingering thirst for great wine. It is easy to understand why l'oenotourisme, or wine tourism, is one of the fastest growing sectors in travel business. Our top ten this month pits Old World wine destinations against some promising up-and-coming routes that will surprise you. Before we get stuck in, please remember that drinking and driving is a criminal offense - don't forget to pack a designated driver on this trip

What is a money market fund?

An article that explains what a money market fund is. Seems simple, but actually a rather complicated asset class to explain simply.

How To Take Holiday Photos

The famous French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson once said your first 10 000 photographs are your worst. A depressing thought for the new...

g* becomes a rat

After all, when was the last time you met an employed philosopher? Such earthly matters are beneath the philosopher class - Satre, Russell, Aristotle, Socrates: none of these ever held anything approximating a 9-5 clock in, clock out job.
