Karin Fong is a director and designer. One of the founding members of Imaginary Forces, she infuses her work with a hybrid of filmmaking and design savvy.
The California native began her career armed with an art degree from Yale and a stint animating for Where in the World is Carmen San Diego? She then hightailed it to Hollywood, quickly finding a niche in creating feature film sequences. Her work has earned her multiple nominations and an Emmy for main title design. She’ll thank you for not fast-forwarding past the start of Boardwalk Empire, Terminator:Salvation, Charlotte’s Web, Ray, The Pink Panther 2, and Rubicon, among many others.
The ad world soon came knocking and Karin found herself shooting live-action and combining her graphic and cinematic talents for commercial campaigns. She’s had the privilege of helming spots for the likes of Herman Miller, Target, and Honda, to name a few. Her vision has since extended to non-traditional mediums, including a series of cinematics for the Sony Playstation game God of War III, and large-scale video installations for sites as diverse as Lincoln Center,Times Square, the Wynn Las Vegas, and the LA Opera.
Karin’s work has been featured at the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum, the Pasadena Museum of California Art, The Wexner Center, Artists Space, The Walker Art Center, and in numerous publications.
