BP&O Studio Showcase: Studio fnt

A continually updated gallery of graphic design work created by Studio fnt reviewed and published on BP&O. Studio fnt is a Seoul based graphic design studio creating graphic identities, design for print, interactive/digital media products and packaging, and has an approach that seeks to collect fragmented and straying thoughts, and organises and transforms these into relevant forms.

This post covers a variety of projects, but there is a strong leaning towards events and festivals. BP&O has been following and writing about Studio fnt since 2014. Their work has often stood out for its mix of contemporary visual design language and a cultural sensitivity, reference and relevance. Studio fnt’s portfolio moves between singular but bold graphic gestures to an illustrative richness with much of the work being cheerful and playful in its mix of colour, form, type and image.

Highlights include their work for BIFAN; a mix of custom type and commissioned illustration, the illustrative collages for Ulju Mountain Film Festival, and the correlation between type, image and interior design throughout their work for Daechung Park Cafe.

BP&O Collections — Framing

Selected by Richard Baird.

A continually updated gallery of graphic identity design work, reviewed and published on BP&O, that feature the framing of space, image, type or product. This collection includes simple white borders, containers that expand and contract, subtle framing through blind emboss, literal frames created by die cutting, and type used to define or imply a boundary. There are times where a contrast of colour, shape or texture are used to draw the eye inwards, moments where the blank and the detailed are inverted, where frames are created through the proportionality of paper, or alluded to in the cropping of type. Many of these are rooted in a broader concept rather than employed as a final material or graphic flourish.

This post features work by Studio Hi Ho, Multiadaptor and Bibliothèque, and covers a variety of projects, from poster archival and study to film festivals and photographers. Highlights include Blok’s typographic framing of rich imagery for CSGP, the oversized portfolio-like cover of Studio Hi Ho’s brochure for Whitlam Place, and the expanding and contracting frame of Mucho’s logo for Frameline.
