LIAM WONG is an award-winning British-born Art Director & Photographer, currently based in Tokyo. Graphic designer, game developer and street photographer, he is best known for defining, designing and directing visual signatures and was listed as one of Forbes Magazine’s influential 30 Under 30.
Born and raised in Scotland - within two years of graduating, Wong moved to Canada - becoming the youngest director at Ubisoft, the video game company behind Far Cry and Assassin’s Creed. In parallel with his blossoming career in video games, Wong was teaching himself photography.
In December 2015 he purchased his first DSLR and his debut photo series: 'Tokyo Nights (TO:KY:OO)’ - inspired by sci-fi, cyberpunk and Japanese animation - gained over a million views worldwide, accumulating a large following online and kickstarting his journey into photography. Wong has since collaborated with many high profile companies, artists, musicians and directors. His work has been recognized by media outlets such as BBC, Forbes, Business Insider, Saatchi and Adobe.
