"I am interested in the vagueness and impreciseness between text and image. Text, or typography, can be altered to be as clear, or as unclear as you wish, depending on the way its elements are handled. This is what draws me to typography, as a medium of communication. This print design reflects upon such an idea, and illustrates a Chinese character which means ‘letter’ or ‘to write’. You can see how the text becomes an image, and this creates a pleasant ambiguity. The style of illustration derives from Scholar's Accoutrements, a Korean traditional painting."
