Sulki and Min Choi are graphic designers from Seoul, South Korea.

They met in 2001 at Yale University where they both were MFA graphic design students.

Since then they have been working together on various commissioned and self-initiated projects. With conceptual approach to design, they create aesthetic works in the form of print or digital designs, typefaces or writings.

Among their recent clients is the BMW Guggenheim Lab - a joint two-year traveling project of the Guggenheim Foundation and BMW.

From 2003 until 2005 Sulki and Min Choi were researchers at the Jan van Eyck Akademie in Maastricht, the Netherlands, where they participated in a research project for the cultural identity of the city of Leuven, Belgium.

The Korean duo has participated in many group exhibitions in Korea and abroad. Their first solo exhibition in Seoul was a major success and brought them the Art Award of the Year 2006 from the Arts Council Korea.

Their key project Specter Press started in 2005 in South Korea, with two major goals on the agenda: 1) to achieve organic integration of different processes involved in book-making – from conception to writing, editing and designing and 2) to meet the need for a publishing program focused on collaborations with contemporary Korean artists.

Additionally, Min Choi teaches at the University of Seoul and Sulki is teaching at Kaywon School of Art & Design.
