Multidisciplinary designer, art director, and animator with a focus on dynamic brand systems, interactions, and experiences. Currently a Senior Designer at Gretel, in New York.
         Previously he was at Ogilvy and Droga5. Before that, he studied Communication Design at Washington University in St. Louis and interned at SpecialGuest. And even before that, he was born and raised eating dim sum in Hong Kong.
        Justin takes a hybrid, holistic approach to design, combining graphic, motion, interactive, illustration, spatial, and experiential practices to create dynamic and engaging work. He is particularly interested in brand expression through interaction and emerging technologies. In his personal practice he is inspired by cross-cultural aesthetics. He believes in a process that is strategically-driven but fun-inspired.

        Sneakers eat up most of Justin’s budget. That and weekends at karaoke. Password protected work and resume available upon request.
