Hannah F is the little known fifth member of U2.

Senior Art Director

Her versatility and experience has lead to award-winning work for brands like Sarah Lawrence College, Charter Communications, Drew University and ITT.

A Day in the Life of a Star Wars Imperial Army Soldier

Swedish photographer Kristina Alexanderson created an interesting challenge for herself 332 days ago: take a picture every day for a year of Star Wars stormtroopers—new and old—in a variety of daily life activities.
