Eunjoo Hong and Hyungjae Kim have been working as graphic designers in Euljiro, Seoul since 2011. They have done quite a variety of things, and the scope of these works is so wide that it was difficult to identify the genre of activity as one, and that was why they did not name it as a design office.
Both graduated from Kookmin University, Department of Visual Communication Design and received a master’s degree from the same school. They were originally known as creators who planned and published an artist Jean Gazzazapzi that was printed and distributed as much as they had been ordered in the late 2000s. In this regard, they also planned and participated in GZFM 90.0 91.3 92.5 94.2 (2010, Space Hamilton). During this period, Eunjoo Hong worked for Two Plus, Hyungjae Kim worked for Citizens Cultural Network TPOT, Eum Publishing, and Moonji Cultural Institute, SAII. Together with fellow designers and creators, they also organized exhibitions such as Beautiful Book in Korea 2010 (2011, Seogyo Art Center).
They opened their office in Euljiro, Seoul in 2011 and started to work under their name. They have been engaged in publishing, printing and online projects mainly in culture, arts, and architecture. They often work or participate in projects such as exhibitions in the name of two people, but sometimes they engage in unit activities with each other or with other colleagues. Hong held solo exhibition in Audio Visual Pavillion in 2017 and solo participation in W SHOW in the same year, and Kim formed a creative group ‘Optical Race’ with Jaehyun Bahk in 2014 and participated in various exhibitions held at Arko Museum, Seoul Museum of Art, National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea, and Samsung Museum Leeum. Kim also acted as editor and designer for the occasional cultural magazine Domino (2010-2015) at this time. They also run a publisher called G& Press. G& Press has become the base for publishing Gazzazapzi, and Domino, and occasionally publishes experimental books through this platform with artists.
