Hangul Meets AI for Creativity

Projects | October 6, 2023 | Comment





Hangul is a unique script system where each character represents both sound and pronunciation, shining as a language that harmonizes with speech. Even in the digital age, it radiates its brilliance from a UX perspective, offering new possibilities for visual and interaction design as a designer.
Hangul is a language with a beautiful design that encapsulates sound and pronunciation.
In this project, I visually expressed the unique characteristics of Hangul and utilized machine learning for interaction. From the ‘rain’ falling from the sky to the ‘snow’ melting on the ground, the sound of ‘splashing’ in a waterfall, and the splendid sight of a ‘blazing’ fire, each work emphasizes the beauty and creativity of Hangul.
Furthermore, this project is an evolution of the first Hangul project that began in 2013, aiming to share Korea’s wonderful Korean culture with international fans. The Hangul project will continue to evolve and introduce Hangul in various ways.

일은 배신하지 않는다

Projects | March 30, 2021 | Comment




‘일은 배신하지 않는다’ 출간했습니다! 24살 고졸 PC방 알바에서 10년 뒤 구글 엔지니어가 되기까지, 그리고 그 후의 제 생각, 경험, 디자인을 적은 책입니다.
절판했던 책이었는데, 많은 분의 요청으로 출간 이후 느꼈던 생각들을 추가해서 개정판으로 출판했습니다.
저의 이야기가 자세하게 궁금하셨던 분들께 좋은 영향이 될 수 있으면 좋겠습니다.
학생분들이 많이 사실 거 같아서 출판사에 요청해서 최소 마진으로 가격을 정했습니다 :)
