Typojanchi 2017: Mohm

Erik Brandt

Delighted and humbled to be included in the 5th edition of this international typography biennial in Seoul, Korea. Contributors were asked to create three flags around the themes of the biennial, body, written language, and typography. For my flags, I wanted to explore the most simple expressions of body, how line and light can give form.
