Hello,

YEON is an innovative Art Director & Designer based in New York. 


A humble, ambitious, and enthusiastic creative—Yeon is always looking for the best idea in both digital and physical worlds.

Currently working at digital agency ELEPHANT, Yeon has put his talent to work on a diverse roster of international clients including: Goldman Sachs, Comcast, Blackstone, Beats by Dre, Apple, M2M and MSCI.

Yeon believes in the power of ideas—not just to sell something—but to help brands deliver unforgettable experiences and stories. He’s developed a unique perspective living, studying, and working across continents and cultures. From Korea to Canada to New York where he graduated from SVA in 2017. While at SVA Yeon’s trophy shelf filled up as he brought home awards from Cannes Future Lions, Clios, D&AD, and New York Festival.

Recognizing the invaluable experience his education provided him—Yeon spends a few nights a week as an Associate Instructor at his alma mater where he helps students bring their ideas to life.
