Im, Jung A - Set & Costume Designer
Set & Costume Designer based in Stratford, Canada
Jung A Im is a set and costume designer based in Stratford, Canada. She grew up and worked in Seoul, Korea, and now works as an assistant set and costume designer at the Stratford Festival in Canada.
Jung A entered the Canadian National Theatre School in August 2018 and became a set and costume designer, working as a set designer for Indecent by Paula Vogel with director Mike Fayette in December 2020 and as a costume designer for I Got My Life Back! by Sarah Currie in April 2021. She designed a set and costume for Harabogee and Me at Shakespeare in Action in 2022.
She graduated from Hongik University in Seoul in February 2007 and majored in fashion industry communication at Yonsei University's Graduate School of Human Environmental Sciences from 2011 to 2014.
Her desire for theater led her to leave the stable company in 2018 and come to Canada with her family. From 2007 to 2018, she worked as Chief Visual Merchandiser at DOOTA, a global fashion mall in Seoul, South Korea.
Jung A can reinterpret the inspiration of stories from her own perspective, communicate with the audience based on an original artistic sense, see the essence of the play, and understand the story with her heart and assimilate it deeply every time she meets each play.
The fully digested stories in her meet the audience in a new form of art through space and clothing, and she feels the greatest happiness throughout the process.
In addition to the ability to design sets and costumes, she has strong artistic skills and digital drawing skills. Also, she can work on props, graphic design (Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator), and 3D software such as SketchUp are her assets.
