Studio Spotlight: HAWRAF

hawraf-clock

HAWRAF is a newly-formed studio whose members (Andrew Herzog, Carly Ayres, Pedro Sanches, and Nicky Tesla) all met while working on that Google Creative Lab site I loved so much.

One aspect of the studio’s focus is accessibility and specifically creating work that involves learning in public space. For their first project as a studio, they’ll be responding to 26 briefs in 26 hours, and the entire thing will be livestreamed so anyone can follow along.

If you’re interested in watching a creative studio figure out their own process you should bookmark the staging site for their project A-Z (az.hawraf.com) which will become a live feed on November 15th.
