Most importantly, this case study seeks to provide an impartial look into the kaleidoscopic world of K-Pop culture in contemporary South Korea.

Mock Magazine Spread

In 2012, our advertising course divided into teams for a group-run campaign for a client of our choice. Our principal theme for Ford Motor Co. addressed five different cars that marketed towards a different audience. This project is a two-page foldable spread for a magazine. The design aimed to appeal to a luxury car’s ability to attract attention as well as a play on “riding high”.
