Hannah F is the little known fifth member of U2.

Senior Art Director

Hannah still loves Boston (where she’s from) better than any other US city, but since moving to southern CT (and joining Taylor in 1999), she’s become a Yankees fan. She also loves the ocean and art museums, U2 and Depeche Mode, geography and J.K. Rowling. Her versatility and experience has lead to award-winning work for brands like Sarah Lawrence College, Charter Communications, Drew University and ITT.

Before Taylor: Art director at Hess Design in Massachusetts and Graphic Solutions in New York City for brands such as Brandeis University, Hertz, IBM, Sony and Minolta. She is a graduate of Syracuse University with a BFA in Communications Design.

“Get Out of Your Own Way”

My love for U2 is legendary in this office, so it comes as no surprise to anyone as I write about the band again. This time, I share a striking, “colorful” video created for one of the songs off their 14th studio album, Songs of Experience, which was released in December 2017. Over their 40-year… Read More

The Snowy Day

Back in October, the United States Postal Service released a set of “forever” stamps featuring four illustrations from Ezra Jack Keat’s iconic children’s book The Snowy Day. This book is my all time favorite children’s book. I had it read to me over and over as a child, made sure it was one of the… Read More

Street Art, Reykjavík Style

At a latitude of 64°08′ N, Reykjavík, Iceland is the world’s northernmost capital of a sovereign state. In that global position, the days get rather short, gray and dark come fall. To make up for that, the country’s largest city (of 123,000) has become a quirky and colorful place. Due to the island’s lack of natural… Read More

“The Gate”

Most people are at least vaguely familiar with one of Iceland’s biggest cultural exports—singer, songwriter, actress, record producer, DJ, experimental artist, science enthusiast, fashion icon, and possible elf—Björk. Over her four-decade career, she has developed a very eclectic musical style that draws from wide-ranging sources and covers electronic, pop, experimental, classical, trip hop, IDM, and avant-garde styles. Björk initially became known as the lead… Read More

Spending most of your day sitting, staring at a screen needs an antidote every so often. We headed for… Read More

Via an ongoing photojournalism project entitled Cheer Up Luv, Hatch documents women who have experienced sexual harassment on any scale in a public setting.

Coloring Music

THIS will keep you entertained and sidetracked from your work for a good while! Real Estate, an indie pop band from Ridgewood, New Jersey, commissioned a video for their latest song, Stained Glass, which allows viewers to color in the line-drawn video as it plays. If their music isn’t your taste, just turn it down and get on… Read More

Street Artists 101

You may think of the scribble scrabble on highway overpasses, abandoned buildings and train sidings when you hear the term “Street Art.” But street art is much more than tags made with cans of cheap hardware store spray paint.

Dry Town

  “It’s a dry town / No beer, no liquor for miles around / I’d give a nickel for a sip or two to wash me down / Outta this dry town.” I’m not a huge Gillian Welch fan (though, admittedly, she is a very clever lyricist), but my father-in-law is, and he came across… Read More
