ninety9cents EVS campaign Cape Town based advertising agency ninety9cents has rolled out an unconventional awareness campaign for the Emergency Assistance Volunteer Support (EVS) that will make Capetonians think twice and hopefully support this cause.  The EVS is a non-profit, public organisation that secures and deploys the necessary resources, skills and equipment to help train and supply a dedicated group of everyday Capetonians who volunteer world-class services (they are often called out to support the likes of the South African Police Service and Cape Medical Response units) to the communities of Cape Town.

Camilla Grobler's drawings Camilla Grobler is a Durban girl. She studied a three-year diploma in Graphic Design at Durban University of Technology, then went on to work at Durban advertising agency Modern Museum, where she has been for almost two years. Camilla loves all things GIRL, so in her spare time you will find her baking cakes, decorating, collecting, embellishing, shopping, or drawing! She is obsessed with pattern, detail, and texture in her work. This is why Camilla finds herself using pencil most of the time, enabling her to explore softness and hardness of texture and stroke. camilla@modernmuseum.co.za http://www.flickr.com/people/camillagrobler
