IDENTITY 

Identity system for Harbin Ice&Snow Festival. Inspiration comes from the fact that no snowflake is the same. Black and white versions are used to distinguish between daytime and nighttime activities.

IDENTITY 



Hybrid Art Center (HAC) is an international cultural, educational, and scientific institute active in hybrid art experiments.  The interpolation of the variable logo carries the HAC’s goal of “don't land in one end of the spectrum, embrace the in-between state.”

TYPOGRAPHY 

Once Upon A Time is a documentation of a trip to the Chihuahuan Desert and a specimen poster collection of four experimental typefaces inspired by this desert trip. The Desert environment is alien to most people, so this publication is dedicated to bringing familiarity to unfamiliarity while using the novel perspective to make a narrative in-between reality and illusionary unreality by using experimental typefaces to change the legibility.

Typeface: Inter, Valor

TYPE DESIGN

In MiXeR, the fusion of uppercase and lowercase makes the alphabet alien yet highly readable. All the letter cases should have the same right of speaking in the same volume without losing the characteristic of each individual because the difference is allowed to exist. The new closed relationship, the intertwined structure that comes with the consonant voice of the new alphabet here, is a visual manifesto of our posthuman future.
