This is a poster series made for the French restaurant Food Sylvain. It represents words and images related to restaurant and dining. The "Toilet" poster tried to express the toilet neutrally because it is a public toilet, and the "Bread" poster was created to show the restaurant's self-service bread counter. The "Restaurant" poster was designed to make the location of the restaurant known to you.

A Winter Watermelon

,

2019


This poster represents the film “A Winter Watermelon” in which the director is Hwang Yu-jung. It was made for an event “100 Films 100 Posters” of Jeonju international film festival. In this event, 100 graphic designers designed 100 film posters. The posters in the event are aimed at excluding a commercial pressure and convention of film posters to represent freely the heart of the film by graphic designer.
The film “A Winter Watermelon” tells a gap between ideal and reality of the main character through ‘a watermelon’. The reason that I drew a big watermelon on the poster is that I thought the important factors in the most scenes appear metaphorically or directly through a watermelon. Twisting and deforming the watermelon pattern represent the conflicting feelings and a gap between the ideal and reality of the main character. The back­ground in the film is win­ter, which means re­al­ity. I rep­re­sented it by us­ing a cool gray color in­stead of us­ing a warm color with soft snow. As well, the fes­ti­val logo is labeled such as a fruit sticker, matching with the other visual elements.

Posters for a exhibition ‹Goods is good›

,

2019


‹Goods is Good› is an exhibition held by D project space from February 23 to September 1, 2019. In the exhibition, it had displayed various artworks created by 35 illustrators. The concept of exhibition was ‘Market’ in order to make the visitors feel familiar to the illustrations throught this concept. The artworks and goods were compised of four categories: fruits and vegetables, marine products, fresh meat, and frozen food.
The posters reflect the concept of exhibition ‘Market’. Carts and baskets are used for main graphic elements of poster. The big, long, small, and trapezoidal carts from the moving poster represent that many illustrators and customers come to market and participate in the exhibition. A scene of animation in the moving poster, where beads are collected, reminds of the scence when goods are put into carts. I brought the idea from the titles of exhibition and museum—the actual titles of exhibition and museum in English are differ from the titles in Korean. The literal translation of exhibition title in Korean means ‘Goods, Collect, Market’, and the literal translation of museum title in Korean means ‘Bead, Collect, Pool hall’. The red, green, blue, and ivory baskets in the poster show the actual baskets in the exhibition space and function as a divider of space depending on each categories. The tone and manner of poster reflect the mood of exhibition place.

Background

,

2019


Background is a work born from the question, "How does understanding visual code affect identity?" It is a work that expresses how the identity of objects in images varies according to the surrounding environment through web technology. Two different objects of the same shape are displayed with different backgrounds and background sounds, and their presence is slightly revealed by the spectator's actions, such as clicking, mouse-overing, and making sound.
