Hangul watch (Experimental Typeface Design)
Release date : November 2014
Work Period : 24 September - 9 November (2014)
Design by DANIEL KIM, DASOM YOO
The characters of Hangeul, the mother tongue of Korea, were made based on the principles of phonetics and metaphysics of Cheon- Ji- in (Heaven- Earth- Human). Through Juyeok, the oriental philosophy that pursues
in-depth contemplation on man’s life and foundation, Hangeul was interpreted from a new perspective. Consonants and vowels were arranged in a circle and
dots were connected with lines along the flow of visuals.
It intends to engrave the messages depicted from the
new images of Hangeul assembly and disassembly
in the minds of the audience.
