Hannah K. Lee is an artist, editorial art director and published author based in Brooklyn. She graduated with a BFA at Parsons The New School of Design in 2009. Since then, she has published a collection of zines and prints called Language Barrier. I highly encourage you to check out this wonderful book, which contains some innovative and elegant typography and thought-provoking illustrations.

In this conversation, we talk about:

  • Hannah’s job as Art Director for the opinion section of The New York Times and what she’s learned along the way

  • the process of editorial art direction

  • what Hannah looks for when seeking illustrators to work with

  • Hannah’s experience writing and publishing her first book
