It’s the first time in 23 years I have not hand-written Christmas cards, but I have typed and emailed 400+ over the past few days (again, from the beach). Cheers, Nigel.

Taking the Cake

19 December, 2018

The holiday cake from our shoot suddenly disappeared and our accounts director, Wei Gao, looks a guilty as ever. 

Happy Holidays from That's Nice

19 December, 2018

We're putting together a simple holiday video message from the That's Nice staff. No one has to know that cake was actually six days old at the time of the shoot...

Happy Birthday, Guy

17 December, 2018

The team celebrated the birthday of Business Director Guy Tiene on Friday with an end-of-day treat. It was a great way to end a fun but hectic week as we wrap up a number of year-end projects for both That’s Nice and clients.

Lessons from the Green

30 November, 2018

They say the game of golf is 90% strategy. It makes sense, then, that our strategy director, Mark Allen, got his start on the green. In fact, he’s PGA certified, as substantiated by this ‘artifact’ he stumbled upon during his most recent visit to the homeland.

Spotted in ATL

28 November, 2018

While visiting customers in Atlanta, we came across this striking camouflage-inspired pattern on the airport ceiling as we moved through the terminals. A very creative application using light, monitors and sound.

Escaping the Storm

27 November, 2018

As an early winter storm continues to slam the midwestern US, That’s Nice Managing Director Nigel Walker is hurrying to escape the flurries after a client visit in Columbus, Ohio. Safe travels, Nigel!

Aspiration Meets Passion

27 November, 2018

With the holiday season in full swing and a lot of talk at That’s Nice about realizing our passions, it’s hard not to dream about our future ambitions as we approach the new year. For Nigel Walker, that would evidently be the new emotionally-charged Lamborghini Aventador SVJ. 

Setting Foot in Columbus

27 November, 2018

That’s Nice is in Columbus, Ohio this week for the first time in 20 years. Our last visit to the capital city was in 1998 when we helped launch Time Warner’s Road Runner high-speed internet service. Columbus was one of the earliest adopters of the service in the US.

Snow Down Slow Down

16 November, 2018

NYC's first  snowfall of the year made for a nightmarish commute last night, with Nigel Walker clocking a record-breaking 8 hours and 1 minute for the 16-mile drive to his Bronxville, NY home, beating his previous record by a whopping 4 hours. Not good.

Illuminating Boston’s Seaport

13 November, 2018

While supporting clients in Boston this week, we couldn’t help but take note of the kaleidoscopic sculptures that have popped up in the Seaport District, adding even more vibrancy to the bustling biotech hub.  

Last of the Roses

12 November, 2018

Of the 100 roses that blossomed in the garden of our managing director, Nigel Walker, this spring and summer, just two remain standing as part of nature's final offering for the year. 

Closing out the Show

07 November, 2018

As the UPM Pharmaceuticals team wraps up AAPS PharmSci 360 for 2018, we look forward to being with them at next year's event in San Antonio.

Mid-Term Elections

06 November, 2018

It’s Election Day in the US, with 36 governorships, one-third of Senate seats and all 435 seats in the House up for election. We're in the center of it all in DC, where AAPS PharmSci 360  also happens to be in full swing.

Spotted in DC

06 November, 2018

Members of the That's Nice team came across a rather unusual display of standing puppets while attending AAPS PharmSci 360 in Washington, DC this week. 

On Patrol

01 November, 2018

Halloween may be over, but the Bronxville PD's two newest recruits, Misaki and Luke (daughter and son of TN managing director, Nigel Walker), are still out patrolling the neighborhood. 

Caught on Camera

30 October, 2018

Surprise...the 2018 AAPS PharmSci 360 promotional video is out and guess who's smack in the middle of the shot? Our very own Nigel Walker  pounding the pavement, of course. Looking forward to seeing everyone next week in Washington, DC!

Green Turned Gold

29 October, 2018

After their early morning start in Harriman State Park, Nigel and Lucas made their way slightly south to a small community bordering the park, capturing the morning sun shooting across the swampy clearing.

29 October, 2018

On Sunday, That’s Nice photographer, Lucas Visser, and managing director, Nigel Walker, set out on a 5:30am venture to capture one of Harriman State Park’s waterfalls against the backdrop of the emerging fall foliage.

12 October, 2018

Following Nigel’s graffiti tour of Europe, it’s been determined that Madrid owns the street art space—and that’s coming from a New Yorker.

Taking Flight

12 October, 2018

We weren’t expecting to see quite so many hot air balloons Madrid—especially not outside of a royal palace—but as we’ve learned, a balloon ride is a popular (and efficient!) way to tour the historic city

Taking in the Sights

12 October, 2018

That’s Nice is visiting the Royal Palace of Aranjuez just outside of Madrid before heading back to New York tomorrow.

Día de la Hispanidad

It’s almost CPhI time – Nigel is leaving Barcelona today for Madrid, stopping for a quick graffiti-selfie near Gaudi's Garden on the way out.

New Series: Looking Beyond Pharma

04 October, 2018

Brian Pierce, Director of Digital Capture for That’s Nice, will be heading up our new “passion” series of videos, in which we document some of our more personal interactions with seasoned pharma industry individuals who have a unique passion – or simply a passion for life. Stay tuned as the initiative picks up steam in 2019.

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. He reported fresh air, breathtaking views and no flies, which, according to Lucas, was good and bad. “On the one hand, thankfully there were no flies. On the other, no flies meant no fish.”

Meeting Biotechpharma

27 September, 2018

Nigel Walker, Managing Director of That’s Nice, is visiting our client Biotechpharma UAB in Vilnius, Lithuania this morning. Biotechpharma has developed a niche business the fast-moving biopharmaceutical CDMO space, and we look forward to discussing what’s next for the organization as we head into 2019.

Cheers to Parth

18 September, 2018

That's Nice developer Parth Tarasaria is  headed back to North Carolina this afternoon after a week in the New York office. The team gathered yesterday evening for what we hope was not a farewell, but more of a see-you-soon... 

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.

Kicking off ChemOutsourcing with Servier

16 September, 2018

Eugene Hsiu, account executive for That’s Nice, is on scene at ChemOutsourcing in New Jersey preparing our clients for Monday’s event kickoff. Eugene, pictured here, is putting the finishing touches on Servier’s booth #71.

Hitting the Runway

14 September, 2018

Adama Coulibaly has translated art into fashion with a selection of new wearable pieces, including this fierce new jacket. New York Fashion Week 2018 may be a wrap, but there’s always next year—and many to come for Adama, we're sure.

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

New York City artist Adama Coulibaly has been at That’s Nice working on a number of pieces for upcoming exhibitions. Pictured in front of—and in—some of his latest work is Adama himself, alongside That’s Nice Business Manager Anthony Reda.

Welcoming Back Kyoko

13 September, 2018

Members of the Nice Design, Digital and Accounts teams came together for a group shot during yesterday’s photo and video shoot at the New York City office. We are happy to be welcoming back our Senior Designer, Kyoko, who started with That’s Nice 10 years ago in New York before moving to our Shanghai office for a year. 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.

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.

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.

Recruiting Southern Talent
