A Look Back On H+ Magazine Highlights

A Look Back On H+ Magazine Highlights

Did you know Hacin publishes a magazine? Our H+ Magazine is a publication produced in-house and has been released in print and online. First published in 2014, the magazine has been a platform for conversation on design and culture in which all members of the team at Hacin have been able to contribute. Issues have featured a wide range of creative and unexpected influences as to what shapes and informs the profession of design and is presented to a collective audience of potential clients, collaborators, and other design professionals in mind. Hacin has developed original concepts and content for each issue, including capturing editorial photography, conducting interviews, and layout design. The publication has been recognized for its design, editorial content, and photography with 11 awards and a number of mentions in other press.

While we’ve taken a hiatus from the magazine for the time being, we’re continually inspired by the content that was produced in these pages and take the spirit of the publication with us when producing other marketing pieces for our firm! Read on to see some of our favorite articles from the issues across the years- you can also always read the full pieces on Issuu!

Have a Strong Concept (And Know When to Break the Rules)H+ Magazine | Issue 6: Issue 6 of the magazine featured 25 different ideas for our team, to commemorate 25 years of Hacin. The 8th idea, “have a strong concept” factors heavily into our design ethos as a studio and we can truly say that this idea and the storytelling that comes from it is a part of every project we engage with, from architecture to interior design to visual identity.
