Claire Taylor Hansen

Art Director

Claire has been designing for nonprofit organizations since she graduated from the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art in 2007. Her passion for crafting visual communications for nonprofits makes her an ideal art director at Big Duck.

Claire jumped into the nonprofit community designing materials for The Public Theater and Shakespeare in the Park (which came with the added perk of experiencing New York's theater scene). Later, she moved across the East River to Brooklyn Botanic Garden, where she settled in for four years, guiding them visually through a capital campaign and a rebrand effort (learning a few Latin botanical terms to boot).  More recently, she worked as a design consultant and art director for nonprofit clients such as Urban Green Council, the San Francisco Botanic Garden, and Idealist.

Claire enjoys volunteering with Sprout, a nonprofit that organizes day trips for people with disabilities, when she's not in front of a screen or at a meeting with Ducks.
