Mark

Since 2013, I have worked within many aspects of the design world: fonts, typography, books, posters, installations, and artwork. Additionally, I was exposed to a wide range of materials and technologies – from flat to spatial, from form to context through my diverse experiences at a typography institute, design studio, architecture firm, as well as through my own self–initiated projects. Throughout my experiences, I have intimately felt the issues of our time, including environmental, economic, and political challenges. Given this, I have nurtured a deep interest in addressing and responding to issues what people care about through the work that I create.

My work today focuses on identifying and capturing the various potential of visual language around the intersection of culture, industry, and art. My personal practice in graphic design aims to amplify oppressed voices and reveal overlooked phenomena in our society. The inspiration behind my work is derived from various aspects of the art world that have supplemented my pursuits in graphic design.
