Since 2003 we’ve established ourselves as leading tastemakers by creating award-winning content for an audience of influential consumers and brand partners

 

WHAT IS COOL? 

We believe there are three kinds of cool: A superficial flash-in-the-pan; a sustainable classic; or a surprising reveal once you dig in and get to know the real story. We only care about the last two.

 

OUR INSPIRATION

Traveling in different circles keeps us in-the-know, allowing us to cross pollinate and see emerging patterns before most other people. Being part of the communities we cover, we dig deep into the design process to find the hidden and inspiring details. Our heroes are the masters of design, technology and innovation who have pushed us into the future. We discover what emerging creators are doing on a small scale and help propel them onto the scene. 

 

OUR EXPERTISE

We uncover what's next in design, technology, auto, style, travel, arts and culture. In addition to featuring innovative design, we know the story has to be delivered in a manner that is as innovative as the message itself. As such, we have consistently innovated our platforms—launching an editorially-driven creative studio, an iPad app on its first day in market, pioneering infinite scroll and challenging the way readers consume content. 

 
 

WE SPEAK TO THE CREATIVE AND CURIOUS

Our audience clever, curious, design savvy and in-the-know. They think early adopters are actually late to the game. Already an active part of the creative community, our readers devour COOL HUNTING seeking content throughout the day for inspiration and research for their own projects. We give our audience social and professional currency. 

Quotes from the readers about how important CH is to them. How it's a regular stop, daily habit. How it influences their day.

"Shortly after we launched our first product, orders suddenly started pouring in and we figured out all the traffic was coming from COOL HUNTING" — Scott Belsky, CEO Behance (now Adobe)

 

"COOL HUNTING was the first to discover us. They eclipsed the response we got from established press outlets who’ve been around for 50 years and I credit them with putting us on the map. There is no other independent media brand in the space with such a dedicated, loyal and, most importantly, influential audience." — Justin Stefano, CEO Refinery29
