Background & Key Issues
The 7th Gwangju Design Biennale EIP ("Futures") Design Development
The goal of this project was to create a design that could be used throughout the entirety of the Biennale, which centered on a futuristic theme.
Approach & Solution
Designs to implicated the past, present, and future of design
The theme of a scratch paper (in which a black coating on a piece of paper can be scratched off using a tool to reveal a colorful underside) was used to represented the unpredictability of future design in the age of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
The motifs of lines and dots represent the connection of the past, present, and future, as well as a design environment that is hyper-connected and super-intelligent. Moreover, the colors represent a diverse and unpredictable future and the numbers are the same numbers as those found on door handles which give a sense of entering a new time and place.
2017 Gwangju Design Biennale Graphical Motifs
1) Graphical module: Straight lines refer to the form of a straight door, curved lines refer to the form of a curved door and so on.
3) Combination of graphic motifs: The numbers organized together represent the role of a door, behind which the future lies.
