Hello! - History


Hello was launched in 1988 by publisher Eduardo Sánchez Junco, owner and chairman of Spain’s groundbreaking ¡HOLA! magazine. ¡HOLA! was created in 1944 by husband and wife Antonio Sánchez Gómez and Mercedes Junco Calderón. They wanted to create a light-hearted magazine that focused on weddings, new babies, new loves, and other people-centered, personal stories. Antonio Sánchez Gómez felt that "things of human interest would have pride of place in the magazine, and people more than things." From the beginning, ¡HOLA! regularly sold out and built a reputation for elegance and good taste.

The success of both magazines led to the expansion of the brand across the world, after exports to over 70 countries bolstered the company’s international presence. Today, editions of the magazine are produced in Argentina, Bulgaria, Canada, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Greece, Ecuador, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mexico, the Middle East, Morocco, Pakistan, Peru, Puerto Rico, Russia, Serbia, Spain, Thailand, Turkey, the United Kingdom and Venezuela. In total there are 23 editions of the magazine and nine websites.

Famous quotes containing the word history:

    The history is always the same the product is always different and the history interests more than the product. More, that is, more. Yes. But if the product was not different the history which is the same would not be more interesting.
    Gertrude Stein (1874–1946)
