Sleazy Comic Catalog


The poster series and media works collection, Sleazy Comic Catalog, was designed to use an experimental typography approach to demonstrate Quentin Tarantino’s cinematic narrative philosophy. The title of the collection was inspired by the dictionary description of “pulp” in the film. Like Tarantino’s movie, the narrative of the poster series is non–linear and unexpected. Endless illustration and typography transitions mimic his theory of random destiny to challenge the audience. The final production for the poster series was screen printed to enhance visual impact.

The typography animation and interactive mural are extensions of this subject matter, applied with the same concept and frame–by–frame animation. Due to respects for Tarantino and his work, a specific identity was not given to the project.

Shin G.
Is a type designer recently completing a master’s Graphic Design program at ArtCenter College of Design. In addition to designing typefaces, I do enjoy variable things in my life. I enjoy reading, writing, calligraphy, cooking, leather goods and vintage fashion. These habits help me with aesthetical and logical senses outside the world of letterforms. Working on typefaces makes designers’ thoughts organized and rational, but will not blind our vision. I have always been on adventures exploring challenging typography tasks, like interactive typography and multilingual typeface design. I am looking forward to a larger stage for my typefaces and my research and meeting insightful people from all industries.
