Chara & Co. is a collection of work under Chara Ho.
Driven by curiosity and exploring the unknown.
Chara Ho is an interdisciplinary artist aiming to push creative and storytelling boundaries in traditional and new forms of media. She practices graphic design, illustration, photography and creative direction in her work. Outside of her freelance work, Chara is a writer, filmmaker, podcaster, and classically trained pianist.
Chara graduated with a degree in Media Production from Ryerson University, with a minor in global development. She has worked at Universal Music Canada and Maple Leaf Sport and Entertainment while growing her freelance business during her studies.
In 2019, Chara co-wrote and co-directed a transmedia narrative experience, The Space Between for her thesis project. The story was told across numerous platforms: a short film, an immersive installation experience, and an augmented reality app. Its trailblazing exhibition sold out and was featured on BlogTO and Now! Toronto.
