  Client Artists Group for Gulupdo Island  
    — Artist group for Gulupdo Island is formed to support the place preserved for an ecological value against brutal capitalistic development from an industry giant. Artistic programmes are held throughout the years, choosing a metaphorical way to say their own voices for protests. Therefore, their activities are much more poetic rather than outspoken. A priority in designing a brochure was not to mutilate photographs of the island with any elements so as to maximize its stories. Text was classified into introduction, poems and information based on a hierarchy and arranged them by folding (it is hidden untill unfold) to give enough time to look, read and think for readers.

  Client Korea Human Rights Foundation  
    — A casebook for Seoul human rights academy organised by Korea human rights foundation and the Seoul metropolis is designed with dimension, 120 x 190mm. It offers compact size of the books which makes easy to carry for full knowledge of basic information and its study. The colours for the cover comes from sub-colours of KHRF. Despite of having a decent reason for the dimension, quite unfamiliar size for goverment employees was a matter and had to be adjusted to the common size (B5).

    —This book is a Korean version of <Living with modern crafts> published by BNN, Inc. in 2009 in Japan and an extension of <Young furniture makers - For finding new furniture studios in Korea today (젊은 목수들- 우리 시대의 새로운 가구 제작 스튜디오를 찾아서) by Propaganda Press. The output of interviews of 22 young Japanese furniture makers shows humble but yet inspiring stories with self-realization of their strong will towards an active life attitude as well as works process. Korean version takes a completely different layout compared to an original edition according to the interpretation we had from the context. The layout that passes through whole texts has block like paragraphs with hyphenation usage and justifying with last line aligned left in order to stress the character fully regardless of being possibly considered as a less modern way for text composition. Plus, on the understanding that the alignment chosen wouldn't become an object of readability in Hanguel. (Typefaces: BareunDotum, UnGraphic, Luxi Serif)

  Client Korea Human Rights Foundation  
    — Korea Human Rights Foundation had an aim to strengthen their position.
Horizontal layers with parts of text hidden on the cover illustrates their slogan, 'We do the tasks. Because, somebody must do.' which has a profound meaning that they don't work in the hope of being recognised their hard work but only improved human right condition in many different sectors such as cities, education, culture, business, global development, etc. The text flow and repeating a first word, 'somebody' at the end of the sentence as a graphic element express an echo for their influences in the society. The slogan isn't just a slogan. It is an important information. Therefore it's got a page number from the cover.
