HOICK is a creative agency and amorphous art collective based in Cape Town, South Africa, centred around the partnership of Dale Lawrence and Claire Johnson. Hoick produces art, creative direction, branding, print, digital and spatial design.

The collective academic background of the studio consists of graphic design, communication and fine art. There is a strong focus on experimentation in the development phase of any project, with the belief that one needs to make mistakes in order to progress. Hoick has a preoccupation with unfamiliar materials and processes. Collaborating with contemporaries in different fields is a key goal of the studio.

Hoick produced a collection of papier-maché sculpture, with accompanying painting, digital and collage work for their first solo exhibition in May 2015, entitled On Second Thought.

Hoick was selected to produce a solo project at the FNB Joburg Art Fair in 2017, which resulted in the exhibition Shall We Move On? made in collaboration with writer Matthew Freemantle and artist Morné Visagie.
