Views from tall buildings

The food may give you an upset tummy and the tourist attractions might be disappointing, but the one thing that is always worthwhile is a view from up high. No matter the location, a birds eye view of any city is worth the price of your flight alone. To see the bustling activity of a metropolis, gives context and allows us to step back and admire human industry.

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

How politicians entrench a legal system of bribery

If we are to trust politicians (and as a profession, politics by its nature attracts morally dubious individuals) to not be led by corporate interests, we might as well legalise the more overt forms of bribery.

To help you pick out the best, most fashionable places to be seen at, we've collected the top established and rising fashion capitals of the world. Even Right Said Fred would find themselves insufficiently sexy to be seen at these places

Styling your head

Nothing says you've been on holiday like bronzed skin and a sunglasses tan (raccoon eyes). Still, a sunburnt face is not a good look on anyone. This could all be kept under control pretty easily by wearing a decent hat.

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.

Sci-Fi Travel Gadgets

If sci-fi is anything to go by we are meant to have flying cars by now, but instead the most advanced form of travel is the lowly Segway. Transport and travel have certainly not lived up to the lofty expectations of science fiction, but in the spirit of optimism we've decided to compile a list of our favourite travel gadgets from sci-fi. A nerd can but dream of one day hopping onto a podracer to beat traffic or redo that embarrassing night out in the TARDIS
