My name is Hass and I am a Manchester-based illustrator. On most days the work I do is an interplay between graphic design and inventive drawing. This is how I make meaningful images that communicate with today’s audiences.

Press Release: Having long worked as a graphic designer and illustrator, Mr Hass (Hassan Torossian) reinvented his practice in 2020, marking a turn toward digital methods. Regularly authoring comprehensive projects, he has designed product identities, marketing visuals, and merchandise graphics for consumer brands. Additionally he creates purchasable goods available directly at mrhass.co/shop. Output can be seen in physical and digital media, with works scheduled for minting to the blockchain. In 2023 Hass registered his first IP, a character named Posterboy. Writing is also part of his expanded practice, often taking the form of editorial about illustration / graphic design, and how they intersect with technology. Hass continues work in Manchester UK where he has lived since 2009.
