The premium magazine is produced by the dedicated nomad team at hw.design and its worldwide network of authors and photographers.
Along our way, five beliefs are our companions. They transform nomad into an active platform, a meeting-place for everyone whose ideas help us all to work together on shaping and, ultimately, achieving this precious future.
Live a good life in a good world
We believe in a world that makes it possible for everyone to live a good life. It is our heartfelt conviction that design, in all its multifaceted diversity, is a discipline that shapes our world in a positive way, with the potential as yet undeveloped to the full to make a sustainable contribution to shaping our future.
Anticipating Future and Accentuating the challenges
We are an interface between the future and the present. We anticipate future-facing developments in new technologies, new societal trends, new forms of living and accompany them as they evolve, identifying their challenges and, against this backdrop, addressing their impact both on global society and on the world of the individual.
Emphasizing visionaries, makers and pioneering ideas
We are engaged in a dialogue with the global creative community the designers, architects, artists, authors, scientists and entrepreneurs who devote their force of inspiration, their wealth of ideas, their knowledge, their talent and their creativity to constantly improving existing aspects of life.
The world through the eyes of design to initiate a new design culture
Seeing the world through the eyes of design means studying it, shaping it and passing it on with a view to the present and future needs of humanity. A new understanding of design involves adopting an integrated perspective that extends beyond our aesthetic and function-focused understanding of today and embraces a new future-facing and holistic design culture.
The voice and the stage of the global creative community
We are the voice for everyone seeking to make a difference in order to shape our world. We shine spotlights, bring individual voices together into one great voice, and thus equip good ideas with the attention they need to reach the wider world. In addition, we are a stage for the people, brands, companies and initiatives that seek to interact with these individuals and join them in dialogue.
