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.

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.

Thank you @rgdhub for asking us to look back at the DesignThinkers branding that we H&W for the conference's 10th anniversary. Still makes us smile and still makes Dom's fingers hurt (read the article link in the bio and this will make sense).

Today is #internationaljazzday. Sure that means the music, but just as much it means the design. With great covers designed by heroes like Reid Miles, Barbara Wojlirsch etc. there is such a rich history. Here is a mix of some design choices from our studio but also all musical favourites. .

Gifts from the post. The Process Two by @thebrandidentity arrived today and it is such a lovely book. Congrats to all involved but definitely nice to see our friends over at @underlinestudioinc included.
P.S. Dom's favourite visual system of all time, @printworkslondon by @onlystudiouk so he is hogging the book right now. 🤨

We are always super happy to meet a new extended family member for the studio. This is Elsa. She is Sonja's (also in the photo) new puppy. .
