Hi, I’m Eva Kao, a motion design professional with a diverse industry background spanning digital advertising, social media, concert visuals, tech, and post-production.
My journey led me to the Head of Motion Design role at Amazon Music, where my team and I immerse ourselves in everything from motion design to cross-marketing creative space and UX design. My academic background includes an MFA in computer art, with a specific focus on motion graphic design from the School of Visual Arts.
Seeing my work showcased in various global exhibitions and recognized in design and ad awards is always fulfilling. What truly drives me is the intersection of motion design and business strategy. I thrive on strategizing solutions that seamlessly integrate motion design into driving business impact. Beyond that, I’m deeply passionate about leadership coaching, helping others uncover their strengths and carve their unique paths to success.
