Bio


Small can still be dangerous.

 

I am a working artist, advertising creative, speaker, and consultant. I make art to inspire conversations. I create experiences that drive emotions and make memories. Between the world of physical and digital there is a connective element of pure design and intention. This is where I play. Somewhere undefined, beyond the boundaries that words make.

Kim believes, first and foremost, in human-centric design and integrating technology with strategy in her time-based work.

With a background in fine art, music, and carpentry Kim brings an attention to detail and diverse styles to both her video installation and advertising work. Kim’s art primarily focuses on humanism, media and change. Kim holds a degree in Digital Art & Design from Full Sail University and was inducted into their Hall of Fame in 2013. As a curator, Kim has produced events from intimate gallery exhibitions to large festivals. She has displayed her original works at places like SOFA Expo, The Modern Wing at the Art Institute of Chicago and Facets Cinematheque. As a creative professional, she’s worked for top advertising agencies for over a decade. She has developed expertise in building programmatic creative executions merging aesthetics, psychology and technology. This, coupled with holistic analytics, yields better decision-making and provides a unique ability to fine-tune actionable plans that get results. She currently runs her creative firm Make Amazing Inc. and is a resident artist at the Chicago Art Department.

Kim is an outspoken advocate for social change through technology, meditation and bananas.
