We are currently operating for selected projects. Our live workshops programme is closed until further notice.

Hato Press

Hato Press is an independent printing and publishing house based in London.

Established in 2009, Hato is thought of as an autonomous experimental space to encourage collaborators to develop ideas and facilitate both the production and distribution of new content.


Integral to our practice is our sister company, HATO. As a graphic and experience design studio, we have worked with some of the world’s most innovative social networks, cultural institutions, lifestyle brands and community groups. We ofer a wide scope of services from experiential design and art direction to developing digital tools, educational resources and exhibition design. Working closely with the community has always played a major role in our design process. We believe the success of any project lies in a hands-on, thoughtful and collaborative approach with both our clients and their audience.

Studio Lunches

On a daily basis, the studio is tied by communal meals. They sometimes become a means of payment that visitors, stoping by our studio for a tour or an interview, have to use. These daily recipes will later be published as an extension to our Studio Cookbook.

The communal meals and also Studio Cookbook are both to encourage a sense of community or family, this is a really crucial aspect to our studio. On a daily basis we cook for one another under a rota. There are no pressures on what is prepared, the importance is the social aspect. We get to know the interns further and it is a gesture of our appreciation.


We run a 3 month printernship programme which is one day per week. We only take on students or recent graduates as we feel we are in the best position to support their practices or studies.

We ask students to help us one day a week, in exchange they are encouraged to use the printing press to produce their own prints and publications. All interns have to propose a project to complete during their three month stay, which we help them to realise during that time.

During the printernship, you will be introduced to the finishing and printing equipment in the studio. In the last month of your printernship, you will be given credits to print your own project in exchange for your time helping us.

Please email us a CV and a portfolio of your work. If you are given an interview, please bring with you a brief proposal of a project that you would like to print during your time at Hato Press.

We are currently not taking on any new applications.
