For its 16th issue, The Projection Issue, HYPEBEAST enlisted longstanding legend KAWS to design a one-off cover, and spoke to him about how he managed to build an empire that permeates every medium and surface, from toys to fashion, imagery to sculpture. The fact that this issue is special is undeniable – along with a limited-edition case, this is the first issue of HYPEBEAST Magazine to feature a piece of art on the cover, making The Projection as unforgettable as the artist who fronts it.
The issue also features individuals from all industries in order to gain an insight on how each of them create a unique brand that lets them stand out in their respective fields. They bring us exclusive features on Zane Lowe, Toby Feltwell, Kris Van Assche, Nasir Mazhar, Hiro Murai, No Vacancy Inn, and Thomas Hooper.
