Ahn Sang-Soo is one of the most well known graphic designers in the world, breaking new ground in the graphical representation of Korea’s Hangul writing system. His numerous typefaces suggest a number of different influences, from the avant-garde to the robotic. And when I’m finally able to speak and read Korean – one of my life goals – I know I’ll be able to say much smarter things about his work.

  1. So interesting – and I am totally keen to learn more about this artist and his take on typographic art – the intersection of art and language, there couldn’t be a more interesting mix! Thanks for posting about this!
