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.

+ Humor is the spice of my work.
+ I embrace randomized concepts to generate unexpected visual results, adding a touch of serendipity to my projects.

Currently in timezone GMT+9, Republic of Korea.

If you have anything to ask or discuss, need consultancy, or seek help, 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.
