Hi, I am Gun Lee.
I am a visual communicator and a graphic designer based between London, UK, and Seoul, Korea. In 2018, I have achieved a BA in Sculpture at the Seoul National University. My key interest is in storytelling related to social-political issues. I am deeply curious about and fascinated by irrational human acts.
Currently, I work as a UX/UI designer and also run a small publishing house called Leewonbooks in Seoul, South Korea. The main categories are politics, law, history, garden design, and illustrated storybooks.
The theme throughout the journey at the RCA has been ‘imperfect hero myths and paradoxes’. For the MA dissertation, I have established a theory for a narrative building called the ‘fugitive gaps’. The term refers to the three different types of paradoxical chaos between rationality and irrationality. While observing the social-political happenings under the global Covid pandemic, I focused particularly on the term ‘double-standards' through the project <O Brave New Voices>.
