More software programs besides design related ones. Personally, I think knowing more programs results in having a wider design perspective. Being professional in various programs helps you to more effectively express your imagination in both the digital and physical worlds.
By seeing commercials and generic signs from mundane life, I have always wanted to regenerate them in a new way. This interest made me work on a graphic design project called Replica; a reinterpretation of symbols, banners and labels in a subversive and anti-capitalistic way. I would like to keep working on the project by experimenting with typography and vector shapes/illustration, breaking design rules and incorporating touches of humor through mischievous alterations.
It will be a good idea to set a specific goal before entering school. Knowing what you want to achieve at the end of school can be a motivation for what kind of designer you want to be.
I like the fact that there is always a bilingual design scene in Seoul because of mix Hangeul (the Korean alphabet) and English. Being in such an environment provides more opportunity for creativity and expression, whilst remaining linguistically challenging in producing understandable and digestible designs.
I would like to work with companies that are internationally based or location independent. It would expose me to many different ideas and techniques and allow me to maintain artistic control over my own work.
Hope to grow and develop more as an independent graphic designer who delivers both digital and physical experiences.
