Hiato documents the travels of Joe Harrison and Stef Hacking, a couple taking a short break from their design careers in East London to explore South America.

Over the course of the next 8 months we hope to cover the majority of countries across the continent, mainly by coach. The map above highlights a rough plan of the route we intend to follow. The aim is to travel slowly, giving ourselves enough time to take in each place properly before moving to the next.


About Stef and Joe

Joe specialises in interface design for digital products. He's worked in London for over 6 years at various digital agencies, and now works as a freelance designer.

Stef has worked as an interior designer in London for the past 5 years. Having previously worked in retail and restaurant design she has spent the last year focusing on more temporary environments such as events and pop-up spaces.

They both have a passion for exploring the world, and South America is the next stop.
