Jinhee Kim is a graphic and type designer who is into the (deliberate) unstructured parts in refined creative works and materials. Her design practice is to look into the way of reflecting the meaning of a subject with a visual language, particularly a typographic approach. And it draws the concept that delivers the inherent tendencies of a person or product.

She had gained valuable experience working with Thonik and Fabrique in the Netherlands and received her master’s degree in type design from ECAL (2020) and BA from Hankyong National University (2012).

The diploma project for Master type design in ECAL, 2020

Built-in Southern France between 1973 and 2008, the Unal house, made of sculpted white plaster "bubbles", was developed by Joël Unal according to his own vision of architecture. Its peculiar aesthetics and atmosphere are translated into La Maison Unal, a project aims to transcribe these volumes in a sensitive and speculative way.

The letterforms are based on the contrast between the spaces of the Unal house and the geometrical harshness of my room, where I developed the project during the lockdown.

The drawing method was consisted of the folded paper, generating designs that combined curves with straight lines so that it brings to reflect Unal’s attitude and spirit in typographic approach.
