Out of the need to challenge conventional editorial design in the Honduran society while converging with digital media into a movement that would empower creative freedom for ourselves and rest of the honduran creative youth, Saku was first born after a late night conversation at the then beloved indie bar Café Cabernet, between Momo, Nikki and me, two of my creative sidekicks.
Right from the start, our idea was to become an experimental digital youth culture platform reporting on the boldest of creativity as it emerged. A project and vision independently funded and created with complete total freedom. Our goal was to be intellectually playful, redefining concepts and exploring ideas that had not been yet exposed in the Honduran society. We were a collective expression of a desire for culture. We wished to inspire, spark conversation, and fuel curiosity amongst our country's youth.
The final editorial team, after six issues made for print and a multimedia digital platform, was made of Moisés Sosa as Creative Director, Madelline Sevilla as Editor in Chief, and myself as the Editorial Director.
The project came eventually to an end in January of 2017 but remains a fuel for creative minds with one same goal, to live fully through the expression of our individuality.
