Before you judge the name of the website as a lame attempt to incorporate creativity:

Hannah Ward. My first name is a palindrome, and my full name backwards is Draw Hannah. There are many people in the U.S. currently with my exact name, and unless I wanted an extremely forgettable website, I chose to use my name backwards. I would say it's a plus that I'm creative, but I'm honestly terrible at drawing.

I grew up in Dallas and graduated from The University of Texas at Austin with a B.S. in advertising. Within advertising, I was accepted into two programs: the Texas Creative Sequence for copywriting and the Texas Media Sequence for media strategies. In addition, I pursued a Global Track Business Certificate and studied International Business in Barcelona, Spain. The nationally-acclaimed programs allowed me to bridge the gap between creative and media and have a more fluid understanding of the importance of each. My blend of left-and right-brain thinking helped me land internships at Starcom NYC, Y&R and the residency program at Wieden+Kennedy. I currently work and started my full-time career at Wieden+Kennedy as an Associate Media Planner on the Media and Comms Planning team for the KFC account.

My passion for travel and culture has strengthened my love for advertising. I also enjoy finding new music, learning about untapped industries for marketing, and trying out some podcasts every now and then.
