Ho ho ho!
Merry Christmas to you dear readers! The NBH Studio team has now traded their work outfits for some dazzling Santa costumes (with glitter, lots of it!) in order to deliver to you some breathtaking projects…right at your virtual doorstep! Forget about a silent holy night drinking eggnog, gorging on gingerbread and doing lip sync battles over Wham!’s greatest hits! Take your protein pills, put your helmet on and come fly with us to outer space with our International Space Orchestra or jump aboard our yellow submarine and dive right into the abyss with Nelly and a wild team of scientists and musicians for The Life, the Sea and the Space Viking!
