Johannesburg-based design and communications agency Nicework just released the 13th edition of NICE Magazine, a 210-page design and illustration extravaganza that took over a year to put together. Exploring the beautiful tension of colliding worlds in and around Joburg, this issue is themed Contrast & Contradiction and includes a new feature titled ‘Art Fight’ alongside interviews, studio visits to some seriously productive places, and a thorough beverage showdown.

 

One of the features that we particularly enjoyed is ‘Art Fight’, a playful combination of combat and illustration where 12 local and international artists and illustrators (including 2 Niceworkers) were pitted against each other. The task was to fill up half a spread, knowing that the other half would be illustrated by the ‘competition’. The results are striking and somewhat comedic.

Also spotted in this issue of NICE Magazine is work by a neat collection of local and international creatives, including graffiti created out of light and water by Antonin Fourneau, photography by Christopher Jonassen, Connie McDonald, Sean Tucker, Jono van Deventer and Michelle van Aswegen as well as sneak peeks into the workplaces of Cerebra, Missing link, Dokter and Misses, Arline Stoffberg, Instant Grass and Fallen Heroes. There may also be a bit of tasteful side boob and a pair of fuchsia panties, so scroll slowly.
