For two weeks in mid-May my husband and I will be traveling to South Korea. We are lucky enough to have a friend from Seoul who is a graphic designer and a dear friend of ours from graduate school. We will be meeting with a few design contacts there as well as the chance to see one of the graphic design programs at a University located in Seoul. My other hopes are to visit the Seoul letterpress shop called "Portfolio" and to possibly tour a paper making facility. As we prepare for our trip my husband I have dove into attempting a basic understanding of the Korean alphabet and language. What an amazing language system! It's been enlightening to delve further into the Korean culture and language.
