In The Press: Jeseok Yi in Imprint Magazine

April 5, 2011

Recently honored with a Bronze Award in the Art Directors Club AnnualJeseok Yi (BFA 2008 Advertising) has been selected as one of Print’s New Visual Artists (NVA) according to Imprint.

Print’s annual NVA portfolio features 20 emerging designers, illustrators and photographers, all under the age of 30. Yi’s work is aimed at those who are less fortunate than others and, as he considers what makes his life more meaningful, he also remains conscious of, “how dangerous professional talent is when used in the wrong way.” Working with a number of not-for-profit organizations, he says it is less about the money and more about, “making poor people happy [as it] might have a much bigger impact than making happy people a bit happier.”
