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.
