Missing Blue (2019)

Campaign Design + Music video: Hae Dn Kim

Food takes a crucial role in our lives and it’s getting bigger and bigger. Now we have abundance food choices but too often we neglect or overlook how food waste causes serious environmental issues. Even though climate change and resource depletion are now widely recognised, efforts towards change remain weak and fragmented.

‘Missing Blue’ is a campaign to help people to understand our sustainable food system and encourage them to grow plants through the music video. A music video illustrates the documentation of people’s engagement in producing sound and the animation of the plant's growth in response to the sound.

With this campaign, it enables the audience not only enjoying the music but also link music to plants and get involved in its goal to achieve at least one per cent more productivity every year to halving emissions until 2050. Music helps plants growth and health, which is equal to our health.

Avatar (2019)

Visual ID/Publication Design: Hae Dn Kim

The Age of data over flow, we engage in numerous acts of intentional and unintentional publishing through our various data trails. A generative identity of a robot will be everyone's personalised avatar in the future.

The avatar controls our mood, check the physical health and have the function of 1 to 1 talk along with the basic function of the phone, laptop and card payment. It is eco-friendly absorbing carbon dioxide and exchanged into oxygen. It is transformable that the owner can adjust the size and the form. At last, it is auto-charged which means it will last forever. And that’s how ‘the world of robots’ become a reality.

The publication was activated at canteen in Central Saint Martins where students and staffs have foods, take a rest and work in an exciting environment. It is to enlarge the depth of interactivity with the audience to create the more exciting physical environment.
