hank is a Melbourne based design studio set up by two friends who grew up in Canberra; Christian Tucker and Breeze Callahan. Christian completed a Bachelor of Industrial Design with Honours and has worked for top design studios in Melbourne, Sydney and Copenhagen. Breeze completed a degree in Marketing and Communications, and has been working in the film industry as an Assistant Director for the better part of the last decade.

After establishing themselves as freelancers in their respective fields, both Christian and Breeze were ready to undertake a creative project of their own; hence hank was born. Christian draws on his experience and skill as the head (and only) designer for hank, while Breeze rehashes her marketing and project management skills to run the business and market hank’s product. Even though they both have very different roles, the pair always come together in the workshop where they both take part in the making and assembly of all hank products.

hank’s aesthetic is a combination of Nordic minimalism and American mid-century design.
