Hongiksidi Sign Graphic
In 2014, Professor Chris Ro and his students, including me, worked on the expansion of the identity system for the Visual Communication Design Department. Open Frame, the newly devised system consists of four disconnected lines and can be completed by filling the inside of the frame with students’ work. It was applied to every medium of the department such as stationary, signage, the website, etc.
Since there were no projecting signs in the corridor, students had to find the lecture room by the number on the door. Thus, a new type of projecting signs were devised using the Open Frame system. Each sign contains typography work using room numbers. The structure of the sign was designed to easily replace the work. As it was made in A4 size, a basic print format, students didn’t need any additional cutting after printing their work. Each student who participated in the system design took charge of typography work for two lecture rooms. I created my own work for room 715 and 727.
