Monday in pictures

Here’s a picture walkthrough of our Monday at HIP. Take the stairs (or the elevator) to the third floor and once up the floor’s lobby, take the small door on the left.

And you’re greeted with an old pair of stairs that looks like something straight from a Neil Gaiman fantasy novel. Except that you’re not led towards surrealism. You’re led to the attic.

And welcome to HIP!

All in all there are two huge editorial rooms – one for the technology titles (swoon!) and one for the lifestyle titles. There are four smaller rooms for sales and marketing as well as a conference room. Add the office of our GM as well as our spanking new studio (still under renovation) and that’s HIP. We have a total of three restrooms with showers too! One of these also serves as a dressing room for shoots.

It was apparent that the task for the day was to unpack everything and explore what lay within the confines of the new office. It is the attic after all, but well converted into a tasteful publishing house.

Mon in his usual happy self!

Kat is pooped!
