“After my college education, I intend to work as a web designer in a design agency or advertisement company. I have four years of work experience as a web developer, and this knowledge will add to my value as a web designer.” — Sunmi Park
“There is a serene quality to Sunmi’s work that I appreciate. Her portfolio shows great illustration skills, in addition to her typography and layout skills. Her work is simplistic and easy on the eye as an onlooker, which is what I think makes for great design. Good job!”
“Super-clean and economical work. Everything, including the PDF itself was nicely presented. The Sport Manitoba calendar was my favourite piece, especially in how the entire month was reduced to three lines each, yet still understandable. I wish I had thought of that! Very impressive.”
