Born in Hong Kong, China, Yoko Choy is the China editor for Wallpaper* magazine. Her work to date has been published in numerous international titles, including Hong Kong Economic Journal, Dezeen, Frame, Louis Vuitton publications and more. Choy is also a creative and communications consultant and has worked for Art Basel on its launch in Hong Kong, curated exhibitions for Dover Street Market in China, advised Beijing Design Week on international strategy and represented Mariotestino+ in Asia.
Currently based in Hong Kong and Amsterdam, her mission, as a multilingual and multicultural creative commentator and communicator, is to translate the knowledge and insights from both worlds into a common creative language and to raise awareness of the importance of cross-cultural exchange in the creative industry and businesses. To this end, Yoko co-founded Collective Contemporist, a creative consultancy with offices in Beijing, Hong Kong and Amsterdam, together with the launch of the creative conference Assembly in Beijing in the winter of 2018, to stimulate and inspire conversations and commercial collaborations between the two spheres.
