Since then Hasan has focused on different areas in the realm of Design, such as visual storytelling and design for social change, while simultaneously producing personal illustration work. Her projects over the past two years include animations and illustrations for Shehri Pakistan on issues such as the right to clean air, women’s right to vote, and the right to education, as well as album artwork for the Lahore based musical act, Gentle Robot.

Expanding on similar themes, her most recent work explores agency and control through the subterranean landscapes of the female mind. Hasan is currently pursuing a Master’s degree in Illustration at University of the Arts London.
