My name is Yoon. I am an interior designer with diverse design background.
I believe in functional designs that help cultures thrive. I spent my childhood dreaming to be a painter. Determined to further develop myself as a painter, I went to Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. The new environment was a lot different than my Californian home; I found myself in the middle of a cultural melting pot. Naturally, I came to appreciate and embrace the different cultures in my surroundings.
After Pratt, I worked in an internship at an event design firm in New York. Upon completion, I became a graphic designer in the fashion industry where I developed my affection geometric patterns. Moving on, I began my career in space design, working in the roles of interior designer and project manager in a number of small and big firms. On and off the job I proactively picked up skills in 3D modeling, floor design, and sketching.
In 2010, I moved to Korea to pursue my small dream of living and experiencing my Korean heritage and its rich culture. Shortly after arrival, I joined URBANTAINER, a small design firm boasting seven talented designers and three marketers. My first project at the firm was to turn 3000 square meter of old gym space into Seoul’s biggest club in just three months. The team and I worked tirelessly day and night, and completed the project on time. This experience made me realize that the most important thing that drives a project forward is an efficient process, teamwork, and communication.
