Living With Salt is a concept book that explores both typography and imagery. The book portrays the use of salt in everyday life. The type acts as the salt and it integrates with the images.
Hyge was an idea stemmed from exploring issues of cyber bullying and domestic violence. I wanted to get to the root of these problems, where it all starts. As a result of exploration into these subjects, I came up with the solution of an app that can monitor a person’s mental health and emotions through voice pattern recognitions. Using a complex algorithm, hyge is able to recognize certain patterns in a user’s voice and speech to diagnose solutions / suggestions.
PETA: Fight Against Wool
PETA has been fighting against inhumane treatment of sheep and the practice of shearing wool. In the process of shearing wool, many of the sheep are beaten, cut, stomped, and some even killed. The sheep fear for their lives as they watch these actions as they await their turn for a torturing shearing process. In order to raise awareness, I decided to make a mock website named mouton (sheep in French) that promoted and sold high-end luxury furniture constructed from wool. Through this interactive website, users may find out more about the inhumane shearing process that took place in order to construct each item.

The Conscious & Unsconcious Thoughts of John Choi
The Conscious & Unconscious Thoughts of John Choi is an infographic self portrait scroll. All the information is based on my own data and principles. The complex visuals come together to define who I am. The scroll was specifically designed to be approximately 74 inches, which is my height. I wanted the size to be relevant in telling my story and for the viewer to interact with the scroll; I wanted the information to be viewed from extreme ends, from top to bottom and vice versa.
A Vermont Tale
This project is a book jacket design for A Vermont Tale by Mark Helprin. I used nonrepresentational imagery and interpretive typography to create the design; the concept and colors are based on the story itself.
The Black List
The Black List is a series of films created from 2008 through 2010 as part of The Black List Project by photographer and filmmaker Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, with Elvis Mitchell, public radio host and former New York Times film critic. These posters were made to promote the first part of The Black List series; the posters work as a triptych however each can viewed as single posters as well. The concept behind the posters was camouflage; a great camouflage only works well when the colors combine and unify.
Popular Science Magazine
For this project, I had the opportunity to redesign Popular Science Magazine. My overall concept for this was "a scientist's thoughts and his notes." I was thinking of how a scientist would jot down his or her thoughts quickly. I figured that science always begins a thought. To portray this concept, I made most of the elements in the Science section by hand writing them freely then scanning it in while leaving the body text as is, using Sentinel Light for legibility. I left the other sections normal under a certain grid system; as for typography, I used fonts Gotham for heading, Sentinel for body text and caption.
