Shin Shin is Shin Haeok and Shin Donghyeok, a graphic design studio based in Seoul, Korea. Haeok is interested in interweaving and threading a strand of texts, images and pages within the structure of a book. She focuses on the observed relationships in them, while Donghyeok’s interest lies in contemplating the ways of renewing the history, styles, conventions, traditions, and theory of graphic design, in the context of ‘here, now.’ They both studied at Dankook University and Haeok graduated from the Yale School of Art with an MFA in Graphic Design in 2018. They have worked together in the fields of art and culture area, collaborating in partnership with curators, editors, artists and institutions since 2008. They are continuing in parallel with self-initiated projects as well as participating in various exhibitions, while teaching at Universities and synchronizing their interest with students. In 2020, they set up their own publisher, Hwawon, as an imprint of Mediabus
to focus on the performative aspect of design practice in which design methodology crystallizes into the structure and materiality of an object.
