In-House Designer Issue of HOW Magazine

The January 2013 issue of HOW magazine will be a blueprint for success for in-house designers, one of the largest segments of HOW’s audience. This issue is devoted to this group of designers that often finds themselves playing corporate hopscotch within their organization, as they do their job. “More than anything, they want to feel like they’re relevant, both within their own companies and the design community at large,” says HOW’s executive editor Sarah Whitman.

In this issue, you’ll find the winners of the In-HOWse Design Awards, which spotlights 76 award-winning designs from companies and organizations.

Here’s a taste of a few stories that you’ll find in this issue, as well:
