2015년의 서울은 한국문화 고유의 곡선과 현대적인 직선이 공존합니다 때문에 폰트 선의 끝을 곡선으로 표현했습니다 21세기의 서울은 곡선의 미가 사라지고 직선으로 대표되는 이미지가 대부분입니다 앞으로 한국의 미를 살린 곡선을 많이 접할 수 있게 되기를 바라는 마음으로 작업을 완성했습니다 [함께서울]이라는 슬로건에맞게 한국의 미, 곡선은 살린 글자처럼 모두가 함께 어우러지는 서울의 미래를 볼 수 있었으면 좋겠습니다

밤에 더욱 돋보이는 N서울타워의 모습을 생각하며 스크래치 기법을 이용하여 표현하였습니다. 왼쪽 상단에 N SEOUL Tower라는 영문이 위에서 걸려 내려오는 듯하게 나타내었고, 그 글자와 함께 옆으로 길게 은하수가 펼쳐지는 모습을 표현하였습니다. 그리고 카시오페이아와 북두칠성이 북극성을 가운데에 두고 함께 만나는 실제 별자리를 생각하여 N서울타워의 N을 북극성 자리에 위치시키고 카시오페이아 자리에는 글자 “서울”을, 북두칠성 자리에는 글자 “타워”로 나타내어 별자리의 모습을 타이포그래피로 표현해 보았습니다. 또한 현재 여러 소망이 담겨 N서울타워에 걸려있는 수많은 자물쇠처럼, 힘이 되는 단어들을 적어넣어 N서울타워를 지탱하는 하나의 산으로 구성하였습니다.

(ALL SIZES AVAILABLE) S E O U L S symbolizes the Korean Flag – splitted in a way that forms the S. It is supposed to be an identity – meaning that this city belongs to Korea. See it as an introduction. E is made of the gorgeous Ghwanghamun Gate and represents Seoul’s amazing sights. O represents Korean Food. U represents Koreas culture by presenting the traditional Hanbok. L is showing the Namsan Tower – representing the modern city of Seoul. Basically Seoul today. I loved joining this contest, it was very challenging and fun to think of all the beautiful ways to express my feelings when I think of the city by using typography. Thank you for giving us such an awesome opportunity. All images – the whole thing- were drawn by me. I have all versions in different sizes so if a certain size is of interest, please don’t hesitate to ask, I will show you. Last but not least, I hope that you like it and I hope that it represents what we all love about Seoul ? ?

Seoul Typography Contest – Sơn Lê

I have never been to Seoul before, but through some Korean movies and the information in the Internet, Seoul in me is a wonderful city with lots of points of interest. Seoul is a mixture of both the ancient and modernity. I love spending time reading about the history of Seoul’s Ages. It really widen my knowledge about Korea and that’s the reason why I make Gyeongbokgung Palace the main symbol in my work of art. Besides, as a freshman studying economics, Seoul National University is my one of my biggest dream. I wish I could study in here to experience the professional study environment for even several months. So, I also make SNU parts of my picture. Blossom and Korean women in Hanbok, in my opinion, is the most glamorous things I would like to see if I have a chance to visit Seoul. It would be a big mistake of mine if I did not include these two beautiful images in my work. Moreover, I acknowledge that Seoul’s citizens take great pride in N Seoul Tower. It is said to be extremely sparkling and magnificent at night and even have a space for lovers on the top of this building. How romantic it is!. To sum up, by this contest, I would like to show my love to the faraway Seoul, to this amazing culture and to the way how Seoul has developed significantly with plenty of breathtaking buildings. In addition, I am also interested in Korean food such as Kimchi, noodles, green-tea cake … and especially Korean style of fashion. From Vietnam with love.
