Invited to design the third edition of the embedded typeface for SALT’s identity, Sulki Choi and Min Choi are graphic designers based in Seoul, Korea. Meeting in 2001 at Yale University as MFA graphic design students, they have since worked together on various commissioned and self-initiated projects. From 2003 to 2005, they were researchers at the Jan van Eyck Akademie in Maastricht, the Netherlands, participating in a research project for the cultural identity of the city of Leuven, Belgium. While there, they designed the academy’s various publications and promotional materials; and together with Tamara Maletic and Dan Michaelson (Linked by Air), designed the exhibition Welcome to Fusedspace Database at Stroom Den Haag.

Sulki Choi and Min Choi have participated in many group exhibitions in Korea and abroad. They had their first exclusive exhibition, Sulki & Min: Factory 060421-060513, at Gallery Factory, Seoul, in 2006, for which they received the Art Award of the Year from Arts Council Korea.
