LESSA CHUNG

 

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

 

I spent a better part of the past 7 years 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 mandate 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 across disciplines, I have experience developing ideas that add value, entertain, inspire—ideas to make you stop while scrolling thru a crowded newsfeed.

I HAve since traded Brooklyn bagels for konbini onigiri. 🍙

Currently a graduate student of design-thinking and researching innovative interaction design methods. Outside the studio, I'm usually writing for my blog or getting lost in the stationary section of Tokyu Hands. 


Available for freelance and local collaboration.
