Phil Choo, Professor and Designer, teaches graphic design courses at Oklahoma State University (OSU). Choo earned his MFA from Iowa State University and was an assistant professor at the University of Minnesota for three years before joining OSU in 2005.

He creates body of work to challenge and value design as a creative problem-solving process, making objects, need finding, risk-taking, redefining lives, beauty combined with effectiveness, and the outcome of collaborations. After years of his success as a graphic designer, he is currently expanding his research interests to 3D functional objects and interdisciplinary study with Business, Engineering, and other disciplines.
