Seoul and Tokyo-based graphic designer Chae Byong-rok has a penchant for the poster, and his website is a multilayered grid of poster work from over the years. Created for exhibitions, greetings cards and as part of self-initiated projects, Chae works best when he’s able to experiment and can let the visuals take over the page.
Referencing old computer graphics, type is minimal and underplayed in the designer’s creations as swatches of bright colour are digitally manipulated like a sophisticated MS Paint canvas. My favourite poster has to be Noodle World 2013 which elegantly sees graphic noodles cascading down from unmoving chopsticks. It reminds me distantly of the end of a PC game of solitaire where the cards would tumble infinitely, suit by suit.
