Awareness Campaign Posters
These are selections from a series of 30 posters I designed for a campaign that PSCORE launched based on their book, Forced to Hate: North Korea’s Education System. This campaign exposes the reality of North Korean education by sharing stories of North Korean refugees.
These designs are a combination of my illustrations and appropriations of imagery and North Korean propaganda. These A1-sized posters are being displayed at multiple events around the streets and underground subway stops of Seoul throughout 2017-2018. I taught at a well-funded South Korean public school for a year, so this campaign is particularly meaningful to me.
The Faceless Ones Campaign
I designed these graphics for PSCORE’s social media pages to raise awareness about North Korean human rights. This campaign uses quotes from and promotes the book by PSCORE, The Faceless Ones (the stories of North Korean defectors with no other choice).
The graphics below include satellite imagery from North Korea that I screen captured from Google Earth. Each person’s story from North Korea, previously unheard, is on the grid. Now the world can see the world they came from through this kind of storytelling.

Indie Rock Benefit Concert Poster
I researched and appropriated North Korean propaganda for this poster. I took away the weapons and added the musical instruments, background graphics, and typography. The indie rock benefit concert took place in Hongdae, a hipster, artistic, shopping, and busking neighborhood in Seoul. This poster was printed and shared on social media. (event pictures by PSCORE)
UN Event Program
PSCORE hosted a side event program at the 34th regular session of the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva. This is the program I designed to be printed, distributed, and projected at the event. (event pictures by PSCORE)
PSCORE’s 10th Anniversary White Paper
These pages are excerpts from PSCORE’s 10th Anniversary White Paper. I designed the layouts and created the graphics. This is a PDF meant to be viewed as if reading a book on the computer or printed on A4 paper.
