Channel

Our Channel is where you can learn more about life at H&W – see what inspires us and encourages us to share our thoughts. It usually concerns the world of design, but not always. Channels work best when there’s a back and forth, so please feel free to jump in.

When our Office Manager Elizabeth is away the studio might come crashing down, but she always makes sure we are looked after...

We were recently very excited to work with the West Parry Sound Health Centre on a new fundraising brochure. Their NEXT/NOW campaign is looking to raise 10 million dollars to assist the hospital to move in to how much more digital future.
The project was conceived, strategized, written and designed in only 30 days. Not always the easiest way to work but in this case resulted in a very energetic and fruitful process.#fundraising #healthcentre #hospital #parrysound #graphicdesign #georgianbay #muskoka #brochure #strategy #design #copywriting #upnorth #westparrysound #designlife #brochuredesign #cottage #cottagecountry #typography

The post came and brought us this great gift for a long weekend. The book EVERYONE who cares about typography should own (yes we are a bit late to the party). The Visual History of Type by @paulmcneil of @muirmcneil from @laurencekingpub has become a studio staple.

Digging through the archives and Dom found this past issue of Typographic 58, publication for @istdworldwide. Designed by @thedesignersrepublic. The journal is the outer wrap and the publication in the centre is just lovely colors. A very wonderful, if not the most readable, piece. .

Sometimes it is a super inspiring when you look at what the designers do to bring their ideas to life. Taylor practicing his weaving skills...

I am often asked by designers and colleagues how it is that I love going into first meetings or pitch situations. I find designers experience a massive amount of anxiety on that first face-to-face — they self-impose pressure. I understand why.
