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.

Dom is in the UK for the next week so you'll probably see things like this popping up. The tube map really is one of the great pieces of information design.

9 years ago Dominic had the 'great' idea of hand lettering all the display headlines for the @rgdhub DesignThinkers material H&W design for the '09 conference. His hands are still in a claw like shape.

In tribute to Halloween this week we are reveling in some of our favourite horror B movie posters. Let's be straight it is mostly about the typography.
(Please note on the first slide we believe that is Jerry Seinfeld being strangled by the Werewolf).
