Hyeona was born in Seoul, raised in Kuala Lumpur, and lives in Brooklyn. She studied Advertising and Design at the School of Visual Arts in New York, where she produced award-winning work. Since then, she’s served as an art director for clients such as AT&T, Mercedes-Benz, and White Castle. (And when was the last time you saw those last two in the same sentence?) More recently, she’s helped art direct and design projects for small-businesses and NGOs. When not taking care of her plants or her cat, she’s busy making furniture, sewing clothes or taking bike rides to parks.
