About me

HANNAH MARSHALL IS A BRITISH VISUAL ARTIST + CREATIVE DIRECTOR. NOTABLE FOR HER DISTINCTIVE BLACK MINIMALIST AESTHETIC, INITIALLY ESTABLISHED THROUGH HER EPONYMOUS CLOTHING LABEL AND CARRIED FORWARD THROUGH HER ART DIRECTION FOR MUSIC PERFORMANCE, PHOTOGRAPHY AND FILM, HANNAH’S WORK IS MOTIVATED BY AN INTEREST IN HIDDEN MEANING AND DEEPER TRUTHS WHICH SHAPE OUR EXPERIENCE OF THE MATERIAL WORLD. INSPIRED BY THE IDEA OF PARADOX, SHE TELLS THE STORIES BEHIND BRANDS, MUSIC AND IDEAS THROUGH THE POETRY OF BLACK AND WHITE. IN A WORLD OF NOISE, HANNAH BELIEVES THAT OUR EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE AND AUTHENTICITY SPEAK THE LOUDEST WHEN THEY ARE COMMUNICATED IN A QUIET WAY. WE TELL STORIES IN ORDER TO BUILD CONNECTIONS, AND AT THE HEART OF HANNAH’S PHILOSOPHY IS THE BELIEF THAT MUSIC IS AMONGST THE MOST POWERFUL FORMS OF CONNECTION THAT WE HAVE TO OURSELVES, AND TO EACH OTHER. OUR EXPERIENCE OF MUSIC HAS BOTH SONIC AND VISUAL POTENTIAL. AFTER 10 YEARS OF WORKING PRIMARILY WITH THE PHYSICAL APPEARANCE OF THE BODY, PUSHING IT TOWARD A BODY ARCHITECTURE, HANNAH HAS INCREASINGLY EXTENDED HER FOCUS BEYOND THE SKIN’S SURFACE ARMOUR AND TOWARD UNRAVELING THE BEAUTIFUL COMPLEXITIES OF BEING HUMAN, EMBODIED IN THE JUXTAPOSITION OF STRENGTH AND VULNERABILITY. THIS IS EXEMPLIFIED BY HER 360-DEGREE APPROACH TO COLLABORATIVE PROJECTS, WHICH ENABLES HER TO WORK CLOSELY WITH FEMALE MUSIC ARTISTS TO ACHIEVE A VISUAL IDENTITY WHICH CAPTURES THEIR MUSIC AND COMMUNICATES THEIR AUTHENTIC STORY. HANNAH HAS WORKED WITH SAVAGES, THE XX, FLORENCE AND THE MACHINE, BANKS, POLIÇA, GOLDFRAPP, RÓISÍN MURPHY, JANET JACKSON, JESSIE WARE AND MORE.
