🗒️ Introduction Note
Hey there, Hacker 👋
Thank you for checking out Hacker Noon's 2021/2 Brand Manual. Here, you'll find everything you need to help
"make this thing a bigger green blob in the cloud" — in the ever-wise words of our founder and CEO, Sir David Smooke.
Iteration 01 of this Manual was created with 💚 by Natasha Nel (former VP Editorial Strategy) and Kien Dao (Brand & Design Lead) to expand the reach of the already well-recognised HackerNoon brand. More people publishing about technology = more documented technical expertise = good for Planet Internet.
Our hope is that this Brand Manual will grow up to be the first place team members and contributors go to align their objectives with HackerNoon's brand mission and messaging; challenge themselves to innovate on the campaigns that came before; and create work that's worth shouting about. ✨
HackerNoon exists to be the best place for people to read, learn, and publish about technology. Visit this section to find out why we're aiming to publish 100,000 new writers in 2022.
