Engineers’ Directory advertorial

In honor of National Engineers Week, this promotional spread featured several ads from local businesses and profiles of individuals being honored for their contributions to the field.


BOSS Survey

One of the magazine’s regular front-of-book sections, April’s BOSS Survey focused on the issues of limiting tourism and retirement-readiness of employees in Hawai‘i. The infographics and layout adhere to the HB front-of-book style, with some graphs modified or developed in order to best display the results of the polls.


Hawai‘i Island Business Report

This annual special section focuses exclusively on businesses located on the Big Island of Hawai‘i. The advertorial content includes letters from the directors of the Chambers of Commerce, a running story profiling representatives of various island industries, ads from contributors, an infographic on the growth of different industries, and perspectives on the future of Big Island business.

The theme of this year’s report centered on the concepts of “growth” and development, in response to the previous report’s message of “resilience” after the 2018 lava flow and its impact on local businesses. “The Next Step” report uses colors and imagery alluding to the island’s agricultural strength and community expansion.

This front-of-book mini-feature includes excerpts from a number of interviews with business leaders and directors representing a variety of industries. The collection of responses to the evolving COVID-19 pandemic utilizes the consistent visual branding for “Coping with COVID” content developed by the HB Creative Director.
