When we heard the news that one of our favourite graphic designer and illustrator’s Daniel Ting Chong was taking a trip to Hong Kong and Tokyo we knew it was the perfect time to have him be a part of the Nifty Weekend Takeover. He has worked with brands with RVCA, 2Bop and Unknown Union and his illustration work has been featured in publications like New York Times, Men’s Health New York and 5280 in Denver.

We love his simple and clean aesthetic, with sneaker shots, beautiful graphics and the everyday moments in dispersed on his timeline. His 2,500 followers agree.

We caught up with him to find out who he loves to follow on Instagram, his most treasured possessions and to see what / where he recommends after his recent trip, and spots he is still dying to visit!


A Nifty Valentines

Valentines Day is just around the corner, it’s kinda crazy because it feels like Christmas was like 2 days ago.. Photographs are a super special gift – yes we’re totes biased, but honestly who disagrees with that? If you would like to give your valentine a batch of Nifty memories and still want to use them to create a cool DIY – think photo album or getting them framed, then we suggest you get your order in now to give yourself enough time to get creative..

To ensure you get your delivery of prints by Friday the 13th of February – 1 day before the big day here are the dates you need to know:

  • For deliveries going to Durban & Johannesburg you need to place your order by the 6th of February
  • For Cape Town deliveries you need to place your order by the 9th of February
  • If you’re in Cape Town and would like to do a local collection from our studio in Woodstock, read how to do that here – you need to get your order in by the 11th and you’ll be able to pick them up on the 12th & 13th once we’ve processed the order!

PS if you love our Nifty alphabet as shown above, we’ve made the letters ‘open source’ – read this blog post here, on how you can order & use them yourself :)

One of our favourite bloggers, Emma-Jane Harbour who is behind Emma-Jane Nation is someone we’ve been beggin’ to do a Nifty Weekend Takeover for like, forever. As a wedding photographer she is normally pretty busy, but she finally had a free weekend and as a newly minted Capetonian, showed us around her new hood – from runs on the promenade, cool little spots, think The Larder run by a lady who used to be Johnny Depp’s personal chef, to metre long pizzas at The Grand it was all sorts of perfection.

We caught up with Emma to chat about her favourite Instagrammers, photo editing apps & if she is a coffee or tea kinda lass..!


Local Collection!

Introducing local collection! This is only applicable for Capetonians, we get tons of emails about this, and whilst this option isn’t live on the website (yet) this is how it works – if you would like to collect your order from our studio in Buchanan Square, Woodstock & save the R35 delivery fee as well as courier waiting time, just email sales@nifty250.co.za before placing your order. We will then email you a Nifty voucher for R35 which you can then use to cancel the delivery fee when checking out with your order. Once we’ve got your order you’ll get an email as soon as your batch of prints is ready for pickup, normally the next day – between 9am – 5pm on weekdays. It’s as simple as that, we look forward to meeting you at the studio, espressos on tap & table tennis if you’re game!
