Kidon Bae is a multi-disciplinary designer from Los Angeles, California. Upon his graduation with a BFA in Graphic Design from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, he worked with design agencies and production companies such as the Groop, Five33, and Tool of North America where he gained experience in visual research, branding, and principles of continuity in imagery and design. Eager to explore more aspects of communicative design outside of the United States, he moved to Seoul, Republic of Korea in 2012. He has since worked with various corporate and institutional clients as well as clients from all facets of urban culture(singers, musicians, dancers, riders, etc.).

As a dancer in his personal life, his work focuses on developing creative and original design solutions through experimentation and his understanding of choreography in visual communication overall. Kidon currently works as a brand designer at Metabranding, a professional branding consultancy located in Seoul, Republic of Korea.
