The Hub was founded by London-based Tolu Adeko, an entrepreneur with a background in interior design. Launched in September 2009, it is a quarterly magazine covering a range of lifestyle topics including Art & Culture, Design & Interiors, Travel & Leisure, Food & Drink, Entertainment, Fashion & Style, Beauty & Grooming and fashion stories.
Alongside its unusually high-quality print materials, The Hub is known for its emphasis on editorial contributions by international creative figureheads. John Rankin[disambiguation needed], Anish Kapoor, David Downton, Diego Luna, Charming Baker, Daniel Chadwick and Lindsay Clarke have all spent time working with the magazine in the past. Its audience are mostly affluent members of both sexes aged between 25 and 50. Known celebrity readers of the magazine include Christian Louboutin, Mario Testino and Harold Tillman CBE.
The magazine is currently distributed in the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Brazil, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Cyprus, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Norway and Austria. It is priced at 9.95 GBP, 19.99 USD and 15.00 EURO. Each issue of the magazine centers around particular concept which is then reflected in the content. The second 'Renaissance'-themed issue includes an eight-page feature in which iconic paintings from the era are re-engineered into a high-fashion editorial.
The corresponding website, The Hub Online, is split into sections that mirror those in the magazine. There is also a selection of online exclusive columns such as 'Literature', 'The Conversation' and 'The Sound'. All online content is available at no cost to those who register with The Hub Online.
