Christina Ung – New Work for Marketing Magazine

TRICK OR TREAT?

An illustration for Marketing Magazine about two startup phone companies and how they might change the mobile phone industry in Canada. Both companies are taking a sort-of philosophical approach, claiming communication is everyone’s right and that cell phones aren’t just rich people’s play things anymore. They’re going after the 40% of Canadians who don’t already own a phone.

Christina was born in Bangkok, Thailand. When she was 3, she flew to Canada where she was introduced to Barbie and Lego… and have never left the country since. Such toys were the source of her creativity as a child.
Growing up, she would sometimes create things and found the greatest joy in the responses her creations evoked. As a resolve, Christina pursued an art career and received her BAA Illustration Degree at Sheridan College in 2007. Since then, she has illustrated for several editorial and commercial clients across North America.
Her images are geared towards adults and children and themes relating to lifestyle, animal rights, fashion, people and social expressions. Influences from vintage western prints and posters and graffiti street arts to Japanese Woodblocks are expressed in her colour palettes and brush strokes. Besides illustrating, she also loves chocolate, cheesy romance movies, yoga, reading comics, and travelling.
