A SHORT BIO

Hello all- my name is David M. Hahn, a half asian, half art director, half designer, half workaholic. All those halves would make me two people- which sometimes I feel would be helpful with the amount of energy it takes to concept and craft equally, to the extent that I prefer. Though sometimes called a hybrid- I tend to consider myself a problem solver with a belief that every brand has the potential to inspire and move people- the trick is to find a compelling way to relay it. 

For me, direction and design are more than just visuals and aesthetics- they’re tools that help make an idea. I often find myself building, copywriting, tinkering with code- whatever it takes to find the most compelling way in. 

I’ve been lucky enough to have done just that for a number of brands across multiple platforms, and I find nothing more satisfying than creating, finessing and producing a great idea.
