안녕하세요

Hi, my name is Hyunseok

Designing and making products and businesses that move the world towards a (slightly) better direction. In particular, I am interested in conscious consumerism, environmental protection, and object evolution.

From a science enthusiast to a management consultant and now, I am a design practitioner in the masters program of Industrial design at Rhode Island School of Design (RISD).

I believe that design can create values for human society and nature beyond functionality. I love coming up with weird and wicked ideas, discussing with people, and turning the ideas into life. If you are a like-minded person, let’s have a chat!
