LESSA CHUNG

 

I'm a California-raised,
New York City-proofed
art director based in Tokyo.

 

I spent a better part of the past 5 years at working in creative advertising at boutiques, social media firms, large digital agencies in NYC. In that time, the media landscape changed drastically (🙏 R.I.P. organic Facebook reach) while the focus remained the same: create ideas with thumb-stopping power. 

I create concepts that bring brands to life at the palm of your [consumer's] hands. Collaborating with multi-disciplinary teams, I develop ideas that add value, entertain, inspire—ideas to make you stop while scrolling thru a crowded newsfeed.

 

I've since traded Brooklyn bagels for konbini onigiri. 🍙
Usually writing for my blog or getting lost in the stationary section of Tokyu Hands. 


Available for freelance and local collaborations.
