Joonho Kwon

MA work

I completed my bachelor’s degree in graphic design in South Korea and subsequently moved to London for postgraduate studies. Having the opportunity to experience two totally different cultures has forced me to think about the relationship between art and the society in which I live. The question ‘What is communication design?’ has come to lie at the core of my practice in this context.


Through contemporary communication design I have focused on and researched two fundamental questions: ‘How is culture created in a society?’ and ‘How can the public be involved in forming their own cultural identity?’
