Our featured Portfolio of this week belongs to Hans Hack, a Brussels (Belgium) native currently living in Berlin. Hans studied Film and Animation in the UK and Heritage Studies in Germany, and after 2006 he begun working as an artist – mostly around the theme of urban perception.
In 2013, Hans started coding, which allowed him to tackle new topics and extend his creative expression, and his work with data journalists has deepened his knowledge and interests in news related projects. Since last year, Hans has been working as a freelance web developer in commercial, artistic and journalistic projects.
