Gold in Calligraphy
We are facing a long and ever-changing list of territorial disputes. More than 160 geopolitical conflicts can be counted and most of the countries around the world are involved. One third of those conflicts are based on uninhabited islands. My flags are focused on the relation between Japan and South Korea. Although there is still a political wall between both countries, symbolized by the Dokdo/Takeshima islands’ conflict, it is important to keep bringing the two sides together. Physically said as two larger islands and thirty seven smaller rocks covering less than one kilometer square in the East sea between both of the countries, the islands expose the historical grievance of Japanese colonisation of Korea (1910-1945) and the unsettled debate on whose islands it is. Perhaps we have the opportunity to write a new visual narrative of Dokdo/Takeshima for the future generation, as a future space for mutual understanding. I created 3 calligraphical flags. Each flag is based on a word that have the same roots and pronunciation in both languages: trust (shinrai/sinang), coexistency (kyōzon/gongjon) and emotion (kanjō/gamjeong). Through a collaboration with a young Korean contemporary calligrapher called Jongsoo Kim, I expressed those three words through a common traditional art which is Calligraphy.

The Hand-drawn Type is a weekly creative project that required continued outputs. By selecting a pair of words that have opposite meaning, the designer created different hand lettering to illustrate the meaning of the word. The project is not only to present stylish lettering, but also a creative process about observing and getting inspirations from daily life, and further applied ideas into the visual design.

Welcome! For the Vorarlberg bicycle manufacturer Kraftstoff, design and innovative technology are of the utmost importance – the Bike Bible was created according to this guiding principle. The seven bike commandments lead everyone to their own personal, very individual bicycle, whether it‘s the high-performance hardtail bike for pros in the first commandment or the trekking bike for relaxed excursions described in the fourth commandment.
