Hugo van den Black
I grew up in the picturesque hills of Adelaide. With surroundings like these, it’s no wonder I developed a passion for art, photography, and design.
First, though, I expressed myself through the art of gastronomy – travelling the world as a chef. For me, every plate was a blank canvas; every destination an opportunity to soak up stylistic influences. European design, especially the Nordic aesthetic, particularly spoke to me. So much so that it inspired me to pursue a new career in design.
But the thing that really got my blood pumping is health and fitness. To be specific, using my design skills for good – supporting clients who are trying to help others live better, happier and healthier lives. I’m not exaggerating when I say health and fitness completely transformed my life.
I started out Empowered by helping out friends in the fitness industry create websites that supported their goals. I also reached out to clients who moved me – like a cancer survivor who used her blog to share her story – to do pro-bono work. Now, I run Empowered full-time. My clients are my biggest motivation, and inspire me to always go the extra kilometre.
