Abstract

The artist's statement: In my design work I aim to create detail-oriented, clean work with a focus on type and layout. I believe truly successful and impactful design is clever and subtle, and I believe an ideal design is one that is so intuitive the viewer doesn't realize they're being influenced by it. Because of these personal beliefs I have always leaned toward simple, minimal work that clearly communicates a strong message in a straightforward fashion. I am particularly fond of brutalist European typography and contemporary Korean typography due to the way these styles treat type. They treat type as an artistic object before a tool for communication, I believe this choice is what results in these styles producing unique, elegant, yet utility-focused work. Due to my admiration of these ways of design, I try to think of type and type layout as a design element that must communicate a message while being visually pleasing, not as a bundle of words whose purpose are to communicate a message and I must make them "pretty" after-the-fact.
