Jun Kwon has been awarded a ‘commendation’ for his ‘Cycling Cities’ design entry in this years ISTD International Typographic Awards.
The brief of this competition was to create a typographic / information system for cyclists to find their way around cities with fresh thinking on what cycling in the city can offer and how the city can expand the potential for residents and visitors to cycle.
Jun’s solution was to give cyclists a direction code with four colour schemes that they can immediately recognise the direction of where they are heading. The nearest points like underground stations or landmarks are shown with the direction code to help cyclists draw a mental map in their mind making cycling more predictable, efficient and enjoyable.
Jun Kwon is a Graphic Designer from Korea and Ravensbourne final year graduate of BA Graphic Design
The Awards are held as an appraisal of current standards in typographic design and are judged by some of today’s leading graphic, interactive and typographic design specialists.
