Hi, I’m Sun Young Oh.
I’m Christian, Minimalist, and Designer.

This space is dedicated to a collection of bits and pieces about me as a designer. I share here not only the refined results but also the rough process, ideas, sketches, etc., in a casual way without curation.

I graduated with a diploma in communication design from HfG Karlsruhe. With a background in fine art and graphic design, I merge these disciplines, constantly exploring the dynamic interplay between them.

My focus lies especially on typography, illustration, and digital materials, encompassing fluid media without a physical format.

Currently in timezone GMT+9.

If you have anything to ask or discuss, or need consultancy, please feel free to write to me in Korean or English. I’m always happy to hear from you. I also welcome any comments or feedback.

Talk at Inscript Type Festival (online)
04 – 08. October 2023
Inscript exists at the overlap of cutting-edge technologies and experimental thinking that dictate our emergent realities. Focusing on design, language, and communication, Inscript explores boundaries and provides a space for sharing, learning, and brazen experimentation.

“Visual Narratives: Typing Letters and Connecting Words”
What if a typeface itself could tell stories? I would like to share the approach and process of a new way of storytelling through the “Flefixx” project—an idiosyncratic visual language and typeface system that explores typography as a medium for storytelling. It’s not about etymology; rather, it’s a way to find and create images in the common combinations of letters that make up words. It allows to connect unrelated words into a sequence of narratives.
