Career[edit]

Dazed & Confused was first published when Hack was a student at the London College of Printing.[2] The magazine became popular during the mid 90s covering British music, art, fashion and film. The editorial approach combined contemporary art projects with issue-based fashion photography and interviews with international figures. Early cover stars profiled by Hack included Björk, Harmony Korine, and David Bowie who contributed to the magazine over the years.[3]

In 1999 Hack and Rankin founded Dazed Film & TV, a production company that would produce the first mast-head television broadcast ever, the four hour special Renegade TV Gets Dazed, for Channel 4.

In 2001 Dazed Group launched the luxury bi-annual Another Magazine and in 2005 Another Man was added to the group with Hack as Editor-in-Chief of both. Recently he has interviewed Madonna for Dazed & Confused, Patti Smith, Mia Farrow, and Julie Christie for Another Magazine and Hugh Hefner for Another Man.

In 2006, Hack guest-edited The Independent newspaper on World Aids Day.
