SCHOOL OF VISUAL ARTS (SVA)
David (Doyoon) Kim is a Senior majoring in Advertising at the School of Visual Arts. Born in South Korea, then raised in Australia, he always had an ambition to ‘Go Bigger’ and moved to New York City to continue his studies. David considers his passion for Advertising stemmed from his father, who is a film director in advertising. He recalls his childhood playground to be film sets. David loves to tackle different creative challenges, which then he can have fun creating various solutions with his innate Aussie Kangaroo punches. His goal is to drive advertising away from boring tv ads and create something that truly moves audiences through human insights. As David is wrapping up his college chapter, he is very much excited about what his future holds for him.
WHAT MAKES YOU FEEL INSPIRED?
Questioning everything, being hungry for more, mixed with a little dose of craziness.
IF THERE WERE NO BARRIERS OR CONSTRAINTS, WHAT PROJECT WOULD YOU WANT TO WORK ON?
I want to make something like Doctors Without Borders, but for design. Designers Without Borders? Building cool buildings? Making fashion for the ones in need? Idk! Still having fun thinking about it!
WHAT ARE YOU READING/LISTENING TO/WATCHING?
I am currently reading The School of Life Dictionary, overhearing convos on New York streets, and rewatching Fleabag.
