"I aspire to create meaningful and playful experiences that people love."

I am a multidisciplinary designer from South Korea. Recently graduated in Design Lead from Hyper Island in Stockholm, Sweden.

My name, Jiwon means "Follow Your Dream". This meaning makes me keep challenging and following my dream. I love to challenge something new everyday. My name also sparked me to move to Stockholm.

I enjoy coming up with ideas and design execution to make meaningful and playful experiences that people love across multiple digital platforms. My previous experience involves a diverse background from spatial design to advertising and art direction.

My work has been recognized by Cannes Future Lions, New York Festivals and The One Show Young Ones, and featured on Adweek, Fast Company, Ad Age, and more.
