My first year as a Graphic Design MFA student at Calarts. At the end of my second semester I came back to Korea due to covid. Back in Korea I used my time doing government competitions while looking into jobs for the gap year.
My first internship was a graphic designer for Art Toy Culture(ATC) 2018. Due to short staff for a huge event, I also worked on planning, and did English interpretion for events, media interviews, business calls. Sadly 2018 was the last Art Toy Culture open(it was an annual event started in 2014). However, as a fan of ATC preparing for the event in was an amazing experience.
Probably the busiest 6 months of my school life in Yonsei due to a lot of extracurricular activities.
From June to December I worked as a student marketer for Smilegate, which ended with our team being honored ‘best team’ for the season. A project I participated from Summer also won an award from the Korean minister of Science at the Wearable Computer Contest issued by Korean Ministry of Science & ICT / Samsung / KAIST.
While at school, I did my thesis show and presented one of my school projects at Google Campus Seoul for a school event.

Our class was the first to enter Yonsei University as TechnoArt Division students. There definately were pros and cons but I can speak with confidance that our class made the best out of the opportunities given.
At my second year I worked as President of my major, Information & Interaction Design (Bachelor of Science)’s first student council, preparing for school events including End of semester exhibitions & Designer talks.
