Hangeul is a Korean script that was created by King Sejong (1397–1450) in 1443. Ever since its invention, Hangeul has been an important cornerstone of the development of Korean culture and its evolution across the centuries has matched that of the Korean people. HANGEUL DESIGN PROJECT is an initiative that seeks to shed new light on the value of the traditional script from the design perspective, while also interpreting it as a resource for the visual and applied arts.
