Jeffery Chong is a media artist, graphic designer and film conservator living on the occupied territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh peoples. Jeffery’s media art focuses on local and family history.
As a film conservator he has worked at the city archives, and is currently at the Nikkei National Museum. Jeffery came to graphic design through his work as an activist, creating posters, flyers, and t-shirts for community groups in Chinatown. He enjoys the challenges of interpreting in his designs the use of multilingual messaging, and seeking hybrid forms to represent his community and identity as a Chinese settler in Canada. He continues to be drawn to how print and digital media interact.
He received a BFA in Film Production from Concordia University in 2008, and recently received an Associate Certificate in Graphic Design at BCIT in Spring 2020.
