Hacks/Hackers

Hacks/Hackers’ mission is to connect editorial and engineering talent to “rethink the future of news and information.” Our work encompassed a new identity system, web design, and development. Hacks/Hackers’ grass-roots core became the key visual motif of the site. We aimed to keep the design simple so anyone could tweak the CSS, change layouts, or add news content themselves. In fact, a bold “Hack this Site” call to action invites visitors to contribute, while blinking cursors indicate that it’s the reader’s turn to start shaping the site. We purposefully designed and built the site to allow anyone to propose changes or additions to the site’s content or codebase through GitHub pull requests.
