Nice Views in the Adirondacks

27 September, 2018

That’s Nice photographer Lucas Visser was recently in Lake Placid, New York, for a fishing trip with friends.

Europe, Till We Meet Again

27 September, 2018

Vilnius Old Town

Layover in Latvia

Colors of Fall

Innovation in Nature

17 September, 2018

Drug discovery scientists are finding new therapies and deriving knowledge from the most unusual of sources. We’re not claiming this little guy we stumbled upon in the woods of Tennessee necessarily holds the key to unlocking the next big breakthrough in life science, but the amount of innovation occurring in the field certainly has us seeing things differently. Where are your R&D resources focused?

Camo the New Orange

17 September, 2018

As we spend more time visiting clients in Tennessee and exploring the southern Appalachian Mountains, we’re thinking camo might be the new fall staple—one we may even take back to NYC as a reminder of the fresh air and unadulterated oxygen sorely lacking in the concrete jungle we call home.

Lambo and Camo

17 September, 2018

Heading into fall, we’re seeing a new fashion trend emerge at That’s Nice as our managing director, Nigel Walker, becomes acquainted with his woodsy side—but not at the sacrifice of his signature Lamborghini garb. “Deep in the woods, a world cut in half,” he said of the ensemble.

Camera Shy

14 September, 2018

Despite having helped coordinate the entire office shoot, our new junior account executive Lulu Ruan became a bit shy when the lens was turned her way. Lulu joined That's Nice this summer and is  pursuing her master's degree at NYU. 

Reporting for Duty

13 September, 2018

At That’s Nice, we are admittedly a bit fanatical over Star Wars (some of us more than others). We’ll assume this shot is part of a larger story that we’ll see play out over the coming weeks as our corporate video is finalized—though this could be just what it looks like: Accounts Director Wei Gao emerging from the elevator with two of our best ‘troopers in tow. 

Cheap Shot

13 September, 2018

The team took what we all thought was a break from shooting yesterday to enjoy some NYC pizza in honor of our out-of-town guests, but it turns out the camera was still rolling as everyone noshed.

Business Meets Art

13 September, 2018

Ten years later, she’s come full circle!

Welcome to New York, Parth

13 September, 2018

Our North Carolina-based interactive developer Parth Tarasaria made an opportune trip to New York this week, just in time to escape the impending hurricane that is threatening the southeastern U.S. And, as luck would have it, he arrived just in time for the That's Nice office video shoot. Parth worked at our former Nice Digital office in Apex, North Carolina and is finally getting to meet the rest of the team.

Office Shoot Take 2

13 September, 2018

A new corporate video is in the works at That’s Nice and our digital capture team is back in New York capturing our newest team members as well as the few who missed the previous shoot. Our photographer and videographer Lucas Visser is behind the Nikon D850 setting up the screen and gimbal for smooth movement.

Welcoming 'Junior' Staff

11 September, 2018

Elan Harris, Illustration Director at That's Nice, brought his four-month-old daughter Veronica into the office today for a glimpse at Dad's award-winning illustration skills. While we're sure she was impressed, she was intensely fixated on her toy giraffe, although her big blue eyes did perk up when she realized it was time for her close-up. 

Nice Comparison

04 September, 2018

With some level of amusement, one of our clients decided to share these two characters from the movie "Despicable Me 3" with the commentary that they reminded him of our Managing Director, Nigel Walker, and Haig Barrett business partner, Haig Armaghanian. Can you guess who's who?

Back to School

04 September, 2018

In New York, Labor Day weekend marks the unofficial end of summer, and the official start of the school year. With temperatures well into the 90s this weekend, there was still plenty of summer sunshine to justify one more dip in the pool for Nigel's son Luke before he hits the books on Tuesday.

Strategy on the Greens

04 September, 2018

A day of entertaining clients in Tennessee wouldn’t be complete without hitting the golf course. Cattails at MeadowView Golf Course served as the ideal venue on what turned out to be an ideal day for a few rounds. 

Continuing a Legacy of Science

04 September, 2018

Luke Walker, son of That’s Nice Managing Director, Nigel Walker, is looking forward to his school's annual science fair in the fall. This will be his first time participating in the event and, as we expect, he will be following in the footsteps of his older sister, who has won first, second and third place over the past three years.

Making a Comeback

20 August, 2018

Pit Pass

20 August, 2018

Blending In

20 August, 2018

It’s race weekend in Bristol, Tennessee, and Nigel has decided to  dress accordingly. With a little help from the folks at Bass Pro  Shops, looks like he’s ready to hit the track—or the woods.

All Roads Lead to Bristol

17 August, 2018

After an early morning start at UPM Pharmaceuticals in Bristol, Tennessee, Nigel took a moment to enjoy the serenity of the landscape before heading over to the Bristol Food City 300 at Bristol Speedway - his first visit since the infamous go-round during last year's Road to BIO adventure. 

Hitting the Course

17 August, 2018

While in Bristol, Tennessee for business, our managing director, Nigel  Walker, took a quick step off the beaten path to visit “The Olde  Farm,” an exclusive golf course and retreat founded by philanthropist  Jim McGlothlin. Located just outside of Bristol, Virginia, the private  golf club is one of the most highly acclaimed in the country.

16 August, 2018

That's Nice is visiting customers in the south over the next two days.

Have You Seen Our GoPro?

13 August, 2018

Shooting with the Lambo

13 August, 2018

Meeting Foster Delivery Science

06 August, 2018

Two years ago, Foster Delivery Science invested in a new GMP facility  as part of a larger investment in its pharmaceutical capabilities.  Vice President Tony Listro was a gracious host as That’s Nice Managing  Director Nigel Walker paid a visit to the new facility in Putnam, CT.  It was also a pleasure to meet the company’s founder and CEO, Larry  Acquarulo.

Good People Go Far

06 August, 2018

Manuel Fernandes, General Manager, Portugal, for Chartwell Actives,  sent us this great group shot from our visit earlier this week.  Judging by Nigel’s hand placement, we’re guessing his thought bubble  might read, “Did I lose my keys?”

UPM Comes to New York

02 August, 2018

Sugar Content in Context

24 July, 2018

With so much buzz around sugary drinks—and some regions limiting the quantities available for purchase—we thought we’d share this useful graphic that, in our opinion, best represents the sugar content for seven of the most popular drinks around the world. When we talk about tablespoons of sugar, the measurement can be unclear, especially to young people, but try eating a bag of sugar without the delivery system (i.e., the can or bottle).

Boeing-Stearman Kaydet Trainer

23 July, 2018

The 1943 model of this historic two-seater was one of 8,584 Kaydets built by Boeing between 1936 and 1944 .
