David Hsia brings design, art direction talents to Hook

Digital creative development company Hook has hired David Hsia as associate design director. An industry veteran and multi-disciplinary talent, Hsia brings art direction and design experience to Hook.

Hsia’s work has covered the spectrum of digital media, from interactive to out-of-home, resulting in campaigns for agencies like Saatchi & Saatchi LA and Momentum, and brands such as Toyota, Anheuser-Busch and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

“David is a huge catch,” explains Hook executive creative director Aaron Schwartz. “His talents as a designer are world-class but it’s his experience and leadership skills that will accelerate the development of our design teams as Hook continues to expand its service offerings.”
