For weeks, I had been looking forward to skiing in Yeongpyong the weekend of December 16th. It was all I had been talking about. Located a measly two hours away from Seoul, Yeongpyong is to be the site of the 2018 Alpine portion of the Winter Olympics. I’m crazy about winter. I love everything about it. I am particularly fond of being in the mountains and skiing. I couldn’t wait to go skiing.
And then I remembered the Seoul Design Festival was the same weekend.
I hesitated. I mulled. I pouted. I conceeded to the Seoul Design Festival.
It turned out to definately be the right decision.
Seoul Design Festival was held at COEX, a complex of epic, unworldly proportions. A hybrid super-mall/ convention center, the sheer scale of COEX blew my mind. Going into SDF (Seoul Design Festival) I was unsure of what to expect. It blew any and all expectations I may have had out of the water.
What I found most impressive was the presentation of the entire festival. Purple scaffolding, large wooden structures for oversize posters and a collaborative sound station were just a few of the treats the Seoul Design Festival had to offer.

Nice Type. Book, Art, Objet. Wait a minute… Objet? Unfortunate mistake?
