Fantastic work from young South Korean designer Kyuho Kim

Kyuho Kim’s a graphic designer from the Republic of Korea whose work is an explosion of colour and type nerdery. He doesn’t give much away on his site, other than his clear obsession with typography in all its forms. From posters made entirely out of typewriter lettering, to layers upon layers of words forming abstract images, Kyuho’s portfolio is as fascinating as it is varied. We were first drawn in by his Dublin project, which is the kind of simple, fun poster you just don’t see enough of these days. Fun, games, typography and colours aside, Kyuho knows how to work to a brief – his Great Gatsby book cover is beautifully informed, and his Zigzag typeface is killer. Oh, and he’s only 22!
