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.

We were super excited to see the book Tomorrow Is Too Late, a history of Toronto's hardcore scene in the studio. It is so rich and beautifully designed by our friends at @gsbranding and printed by @flashreproductions. Congrats to all. Amazing project.
