Apparently I'm a nigga, despite the fact that I'm not American. If you're black you have probably been called one too. In the interest of self-discovery I've decided to find out just what a nigga is and how I might become better at being one

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.

Windhoek Pure Beer Society Venues

A design-led project to create Windhoek Beer themed drinking venues, where the beer's values and ethos lived. This project involved interior design, public relations, furniture-making and a little bit of my writing. Perhaps the first and last time my copy was carved on to furniture

Poor predictions and the bad choices that follow

The sun will rise (somewhere) tomorrow. The earth will spin on its axis for the foreseeable future, and time will keep going. These things we take for granted are all predictions; some of the few that we can rely on. Nothing guarantees them, but few doubt them. This confidence in the movement of celestial objects and nature’s faithful progress encourages us to believe in the power of prediction – even when the odds prove otherwise...
