Kirsten (Young Gul) Cho, born in 1989, is a Korean motion graphic designer living and
working in New York City.
She received her MFA in Computer Art at the School of Visual Arts, (NYC) in 2017. Her
passion for 2D and 3D animation using Adobe After Effects and Maxon Cinema 4D led
Kirsten to create her thesis film titled “E-delivery,” which won the bronze medal in the
animation category of the Student Academy Awards. The film was also selected by a
number of prestigious festivals including Adobe Design Achievement Awards, Taiwan
Student International Design Competition, European Cinematography Awards, and
Berlin Flash Film Festival. Recently she has been working (freelance) as a 2D and 3D
motion graphic designer.
Originally I wanted to be a fashion designer but luckily a required Media design course changed all that. I discovered media design was the perfect field for
a perfectionist. True then and even more so now- the technology continually expands the possibilities of 2D and 3D animation. I’m thrilled by the immense
amount of data in every frame. Having control over so many parameters lets me take my films to the next level. I cherish every pixel in the stories I create and I hope my work pleases my viewers.
