We’ve created a sonic identity for an exciting new storytelling platform, MAEKAN. Founded by Eugene Kan and Alex Maeland (former managing editor and creative director of Hypebeast respectively), the publication traverses the worlds of fashion, music, food, design, business, sport, and tech, all through its own unique exploratory lens. What makes their approach to journalism all the more interesting, is their decision to make sound an integral part of the storytelling process. We composed a series of idents, audio bumpers and various in-app notification sounds – listen above.
