ABOUT







Sulki and Min [Sulki Choi]

This type team consists of Sulki Choi and Min Choi, graphic designers in Seoul, Korea, who first met in 2001 while studying for an MFA at Yale. Sulki is teaching at Kaywon School of Art&Design, and Min at the University of Seoul. Their typefaces include identities (Now Jump [for the exhibition at Nam June Paik Art Center, Yongin, 2008], Arko Pix [dingbats for the Arko Art Center, 2008]), experimental typefaces (FF Tronic [2003: a grunge typeface done with Hyun Cho], Stealth [2002], Blitz [2001: grunge]), pixel typefaces (Bmap) and more or less standard typefaces (Zephyr (2001, a humanist monospace family), Politie (2001), Transport Text [light-weight adaptation of the British road sign letterform, originally designed by Jock Kinneir and Magaret Calvert, 2003], Vitra Thin [2002: hairline sans], Bask Sans [2003]). Politie (2002) is a monospace adaptation of the typeface Wim Crouwel designed in the 1960s for the typewriter manufacturer Olivetti, which was released after decades as a digital font by the Foundry in London (Foundry Gridnik). Sulki and Min explain: Although neither the original nor the Foundry's interpretation were designed as fixed-width typefaces, its rigid, modular letterform seemed apt for a monospace adaptation.
