Young Guns

Young Guns is a portfolio competition awarding creative professionals 30 years and under, including designers, illustrators, entrepreneurs, and more!

2019: In a year that could arguably be described as the most diverse class in Young Guns history, a jury of more than 60 respected creatives — half of them past Young Guns winners themselves — spent two months reviewing hundreds of submissions from a record 45 different countries.

After several rounds of judging, which narrowed down the vast pool of talent to a finalist list of 81 creatives, the jury debated, discussed and ultimately selected 28 superstars to be part of Young Guns 17. This year's class runs across a wide variety of disciplines, and with only three YG17 winners being American-born, the global nature of this accolade is becoming even greater.

Joyce N. Ho

Art Director

Joyce is a Hong Kong-born Australian designer brought up on a daily dose of '90s cartoons, which led to her soft spot for the silver screen. A designer with a decade's experience, there's nothing she enjoys more than storytelling through motion and bringing ideas to life through design. As an art director and motion designer, Joyce's work is textural and expressive. Her approach is design-led and she's always excited to learn, experiment and explore uncharted territory whenever possible.

Now based in Brooklyn, Joyce continues her obsession with all things motion and freelances in-between befriending all the cute dogs NYC has to offer. She has directed numerous noteworthy projects, including the titles for "Semi Permanent" in 2018, "The Expanse" opening titles for Syfy and she was design director for "Volume 3" of Netflix's "Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj".

Joyce has been a finalist at SXSW Film Awards three times and her work has been recognized by The One Club, ADC, The ADCC and the Australian Production Design Guild, among others. She was named one of "10 Women of Title Design" by "Art of the Title" in 2018.
