If image bank Haw-lin were an American football team we would be pressed up against the barrier, pompoms in hand, wildly screaming our support in between shovelling huge mouthfuls of popcorn into our faces. We’ve long been writing adoring articles about their collaborative work – of which there is no small amount, as they provide their aesthetic prowess to create exciting new projects with brands and creatives alike – so when they got in touch to announce the launch of their new website we expected great things.
They didn’t disappoint; the new site is sleek, well-captioned and easy to navigate, placing all of their excellent work in one great big well of visual inspiration. Long may you reign over image banks, Haw-lin. Hurrah.
