Jezzika Chung’s career in advertising has been as colorful as her collection of vintage clothing. After being chosen as one of 40 college seniors across the nation to take part in the AAF Most Promising Minority Students program in 2013, she interned as a strategist at Leo Burnett as part of the 4A’s MAIP Program. She was then chosen as one of 26 Adcolor Futures to participate in the organization's career-shifting program in Los Angeles.
In 2013, she began working at Apple’s exclusive ad agency Media Arts Lab in the account management department. After launching a behemoth of a project on apple.com celebrating 30 years of Mac, she worked across U.S. and global campaigns for iPad Pro, the launch of iPhone 6, MacBook, and various other Apple products. She’s worked with over 20 markets around the world to launch TV, print, outdoor, and digital ads.
After a series of fortunate events that involved a “Shot on iPhone” Beyoncé music video remake, Jezz worked her way into the creative department as a copywriter. Since her transition, she’s worked on the Cannes Grand Prix-winning Shot on iPhone campaign, including the “Human Family” film that premiered during the opening ceremony of the 2016 Summer Olympics. She then went on to launch a witty iPad Pro campaign and a collection of dynamic films for Apple Watch.
Jezz is committed to promoting diversity and inclusion in advertising and media, planning cultural events at both Media Arts Lab and TBWA\Chiat Day throughout the year. She was recently honored with the title of Ms. Adcolor during the 2017 Adcolor Conference and Awards and was named as one of "100 People Who Make Advertising Great" by the 4A's. She also leads a triple life as a hip hop dancer and Korean BBQ connoisseur.
