Looking back at 2011

We figured we can’t really know where we’re going, until we know where we’ve been, so here’s to 2011 and everything that happened….

We brought you four fantastic magazines this year. Starting with The Mystery Issue in February, we made music in May with The Music Issue. We then lived on the edge in August with The Danger Issue and finished the year on a lighter note with the Humour Issue.

Another big highlight was the re-launch of www.hip2b2.com and the launch of our very own mobisite, m.hip2b2.com. Based on the feedback we received from you guys, you loved it!

We also hit the airwaves with the launch of HIP2B2 Radio – the smartest radio station online.

The 2011 iThink Challenge was a great success and ended in a tie for first place between Waterkloof High and Helpmekaar College. Check out pictures here.

And who could forget the awesome guitar competition we ran. We received nearly 100 entries from Hipsters wanting to win that Fender Electric guitar. At the end of the day, the judges, you and Goldfish, decided that Blom Malan deserved the Fender.

We also started Tweeting and already have over 200 followers. Start following us @HIP2B2_SA. Our Facebook also exploded and we recently passed the 6000-fan mark.

South Africa also saw headline acts like Kings of Leon, Coldplay, Lil Wayne and Drake in 2011. In 2012 we can look forward to the likes of Sting and Michael Buble, to mention a few. A couple of movies to look out for in 2012 are Men In Black 3, Step Up 4 and Halo.

Thanks 2011, you’ve been good to us, we’re sure looking forward to 2012!
