Yay so last week was basically a test run start of the #NiftyColourProjectII – thanks to @adidasza it’s going to be even more exciting this time around.. The rules are the same, every week on a Monday morning we’ll announce the week’s colour, this week being red obvs. During the week you get to upload photos to Instagram where red is the main or pop of colour and include the hashtag. If we are obsessed with your snap & regram it on our profile you’ll win a Nifty voucher for x30 Polaroid-style prints (delivery not included) however there is now an additional prize for the ultimate best photograph of the week, as chosen by the adidas team, a pair of super-cool-must-have-need-want Stan Smiths! The overall winner for each colour will be announced every Friday afternoon, are you excited or what? The overall winner maybe someone that we’ve selected as one of our favourites, or it could be a completely different entry, we’re leaving it up to the adidas team. Okay now that you’ve got the super simple rules, let’s play
A few weeks ago we posted about a new job we were looking to fill at the Nifty studio, we were absolutely astounded and overwhelmed by the responses, thank you so much to everyone who sent through your CVs, especially to those who put a lot of thought and effort into your cover letters, we loved & LOL’d (in a good way) going through them. After narrowing the field down via coffee meetings at Flat Mountain Roastery we have filled with position, everyone meet Le’Chelle Taylor!
Le’Chelle was the absolute perfect person for us, she fit the role to the T, believe you me, we stalked all your Instagram accounts and we loved that a few scrolls down on hers we spotted a fresh batch of Nifty prints, plus she has a cool Instagram account (follow her @LeChelle_Taylor) which was an optional extra, but that we were actually quite serious about. Le’Chelle officially started training on Monday and tomorrow will be her first day taking over the reigns, eek! Just kidding, we have faith. We chatted to her about applying for the job, her own super cool blog Taylor Made, having a Youtube channel, her greatest extravagance (data, which is ours too ha) and her pet peeves!
Follow @jessbinxx on Instagram
Jess is one of those people we feel like we’ve been following on Instagram, literally forever. She always had a really beautiful and well curated account, with a few thousand followers and one day we had another look and her account had suddenly just blown up, she currently has 45,000 followers – how crazy ahmazing? We met her for the first time at the 1st Nifty x Gummie Insta-walk and were blown away by the tiny hot pink digital camera she was shooting on.. We’ve wanted her to do a Nifty Weekend Takeover for ages and last weekend she did it, from lunch at our favourite Babylonstoren, ice-cream at The Creamery, creepy cool plants, sunset perfection and chilled Sunday afternoons at the Waterfront she showed us a really good time in the Mother City!
We caught up with her to chat about her Instagram blowing up, what camera she currently shoots on, her best editing app (it’s only one) and her favourite people to follow!
We’re oh so obsessed with all the Nifty Milestones entries for us hitting 10,000 followers and finally get the k on Instagram! We handed the creative reins over to you and we absolutely love the 79 submissions we got in just 2 days! We’ve narrowed it down to our favourite top 10, but now we’ve decided to let you guys to decide who the top 3 submissions are!
Have a scroll through all ten and then please vote for your favourite
Update: the winners are: 1st place – @chloe.boulos / 2nd place – annekejagau / 3rd place – @lachelslazo
OMG we’re 66 followers away from 10,000 on Instagram & officially ‘getting the k’ which is crazy unbelievable. Every thousand followers we’ve celebrate by creating the number out of an assortment of things from stickers to coffee pods, marshmellows, jelly tots & Oreos, it’s been fun. For this big one we thought we would hand it over to you – create the number 10,000 or simply 10k out of whatever you like, but they have to be real things, no typefaces overlaid on an image. The rules: has to be uploaded to Instagram in a square format, otherwise if you’re all about the Whitagram borders, upload it like that & email a square version to firstname.lastname@example.org, a white/clean background is preferable but it’s up to you! When you upload make sure to include #NiftyMilestones so we can see it.. Enter as many times as you like, the more the merrier.
– 1st prize Nifty voucher for x100 polaroid prints + delivery
– 2nd prize Nifty voucher for x50 polaroid prints + delivery
– 3rd prize Nifty voucher for x30 polaroid prints + delivery
Closing date: dependant on when we hit 10,000
