Cassius shows ’10 campaign visuals

November 14, 2009/20.43

We love these new visuals that Jason Ng at Cassius Eyewear sent to us earlier this month. The extra good news, apart from doing some very stylish eyewear, is that his company is getting more attention domestically—until recently, it seemed Cassius would be known outside its native New Zealand more than it would be on-shore.
