Jung Y. Paek is a New York based communication designer. She was fortunate enough to have grown up across cultures— Chicago, Korea, NY, NJ, Mexico City, Moscow, and Pittsburgh. The diversity of such an upbringing reflects in her design approach; in its adaptability, cross-cultural empathy, and keen attention to facts and history.

Jung received her Master of Design degree and Bachelor of Fine Arts from Carnegie Mellon University, where she also taught undergraduate students for 2 years. She has worked with organizations like Genentech, Samsung, Pfizer, W.P.Carey, PwC, The Face Shop, Allergan, Takeda, AMAG, and Vornado. She enjoys working on projects that involve typography, colors, and composition. She is trained as a communication designer with extended expertise in advertising, motion graphics, web design, illustration and digital photography.
