ALICE CHUNG is founding partner at Omnivore, a Brooklyn-, Portland-, and Los Angeles-based design studio founded in 2002. A voracious appetite for art-, architecture-, and culture-related design work is balanced by a strong commitment to working with cause-related organizations such as the Robin Hood Foundation, Riverkeeper, Bard Prison Initiative, and the Michael J. Fox Foundation. Current projects include the identity, wayfinding and interpretive design system for Stoneview Nature Center in Los Angeles County; books, posters and program guides for prospective students for USC School of Architecture; invitation materials for the Friends of the High Line annual benefit, and a catalogue for the artist Suzanne McClelland with Team Gallery. Chung has frequently collaborated with artists including Polly Apfelbaum and Charles Atlas, and has designed many publications, posters, and other print pieces for Princeton University School of Architecture.
Before founding Omnivore, Chung worked as a designer at legendary design firm 2x4. She began teaching at Princeton in 2011 where she is Lecturer in Visual Arts. She is also Senior Critic in Graphic Design at Yale University School of Art where she has been teaching since 2005. She studied at Johns Hopkins University and Harvard University receiving an undergraduate degree in biology and a masters degree in health and social behavior. Her graduate work led her to pursue design studies at the Rhode Island School of Design, where she received a B.F.A. and a B.G.D.
