Extreme Beauty: 12 Korean Artists Today


Extreme Beauty: 12 Korean Artists Today features the work of 12 contemporary Korean artists, each with a unique approach to making art, from the ultra-minimal to the hyper-conceptual. The book marks a new and dynamic chapter in Korean art, one that challenges cultural norms and encourages a more experimental, provocative approach to art-making in Korea.

Our design uses an extremist typographic style, combining legible and experimental typefaces; intense titling is contrasted against a clean and legible style for body text. Red is used prominently, both as a representative colour for Korea, but also to evoke danger, courage and passion in the context of design.
