Hello! My name is Kyung (pronounced k·young) and I am a designer and an illustrator based in New York City. I do various freelance projects and work as a page designer at the Wall Street Journal.
I was born and raised in Seoul until the age of twelve, then I immigrated to the states. Illustration and design is my American dream--as much as that sounds corny.
I graduated from School of Visual Arts for MFA in Illustration as visual essays and graduated from California College of the Arts in San Francisco with a BFA in Illustration.
My work has been recognized by Society of Illustrators and American Illustration. Clients include Pomelo Studio, UC Berkeley's Islamophobia Studies Journal, Layers Studios, and Fast Company.
My main focus is to represent important stories and various communities through art and design, and having fun! I am deeply interested in using art and design as a primary ally to literature and journalism. I believe when the right design and the right stories meet, amazing and productive changes can happen in our society.
Feel free to holler at me! My name means bright and I don't bite.
