Hello 🙌,
I’m Soyeon, a motion designer specialized in branding from Seoul based in LA.

When I first type in Soyeon in any field, it autocorrects to soybean. I’m a soybean kind of designer. Similar to how soybean is used for various purposes like soy sauce, tofu, soy milk, and soy candles. I’m a multidisciplinary designer who uses motion design skills for brand identity system development, style frames, design system and generative design.

Don’t you think soybean and I are similar?
