WHO IS MINJI JOO?
Gives airy nothing A
A local habitation and a name.
I am an Austin-based Korean American art director, creative strategist, and mental health advocate on the pursuit to culturally redefine advertising. I began my career in advertising through the Texas Creative Program, the #1 ranked undergraduate advertising program in the nation, where I created multimedia campaigns for renowned brands like Band-Aid, SPANX, and Whataburger as an art director. I advanced through all three sequence levels of the Texas Creative Program during my academic career at the University of Texas at Austin. I was selected as a 2020 MAIP Fellow Finalist, an art director intern by McgarryBowen Chicago, and by Evoke Group New York.
I am a multidisciplinary artist whose work reflects real human truths, focuses on self-empowerment, anchors with good design, and pushes the framework of what an ad can be.

I am currently seeking art director internship opportunities and junior art director positions.
