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. 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 are tools that help make an idea. But they're not the only tools I use– 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.
