Interview with Sung-Hyeon Yoo

Could you please tell us more about your art and design background? What made you become an artist/designer? Have you always wanted to be a designer?
I was a science boy who always have passion to learn and massive curiosity. and always have some urge to make the world idealistic watching crime scenes in news. One day my class teacher suggested me how about invention and then I knew that I born to create. this boy who want to be a hero thoughts that design is only way to save my world. And its fun too! so it starts.
Can you tell us more about your company / design studio?
Mm is my self. one man company. about to grow because just started. I will gather some members who think like me and grow like Andy Warhol's 'the Factory', but have more intense purpose.
What is "design" for you?
design is my only way to realize my final destination. also it makes me joyed when I design so design is my entertainment. and I learn some abstract knowledge or scientific knowledge while researching or designing so design is my learning site.
What kinds of works do you like designing most?
I like drawing with my hands, make a real model or researching. I like the whole process so its hard to say one the most.
What is your most favorite design, could you please tell more about it?
I like them all. actually I have make logo, clothes, car, smart phone, gadgets, living things or so.
When do you feel the most creative?
when I thinking solutions about the problem. I make various solutions in no time. Or, when I drawing a design I become concentrated and create beautiful shape.
What kind of emotions do you feel when your designs are realized?
not yet I have not. but I think it will like adopting a Golden Retriever puppy.
When judging a design as good or bad, which aspects do you consider first?
Can it brings people a true happiness? also does not contains false factor?
From your point of view, what are the responsibilities of a designer for society and environment?
visual stimulus is the most important factor influencing a person's life. so designers SHOULD, consider to not just make designs luxury, but contain good factors. This can be a inner beauty, message, or emotional enhance. It is abstract.
Where does the design inspiration for your works come from? How do you feed your creativity? What are your sources of inspirations?
books I have read. fantasy and science fiction does helped but sometimes plain science books does a lot. I inspired mostly in living beautiful creatures.
How would you describe your design style? What made you explore more this style and what are the main characteristics of your style? What's your approach to design?
When I design appearance I am like a emotional chicken. I do not think and draw. but design about solutions and function I am not a chicken. I think a lot.
Can you talk a little about your design process?
find problem and make various solutions. conclude and research. modeling and render.
Could you please share some pearls of wisdom for young designers? What are your suggestions to young, up and coming designers?
because I am super super young, I have almost nothing. but I want to say this : watch good movies, listen more old-pop or rocks, read many books.
From your perspective, what would you say are some positives and negatives of being a designer?
positive is that you can enjoy your work and satisfy. negative is that you become odd. As super oddity, I like odd but relationships will be more difficult.
What skills are most important for a designer?
It is not a skill, but I want to say this. 'a warm heart'
Designing can sometimes be a really time consuming task, how do you manage your time?
If I have some group members I will divide work. Alone, I usually do it one by one. take extra more time, but extra more quality.
What type of design work do you enjoy the most and why?
I love them all. One anecdote to say is, when I make Han-bok, I actually make the clothes and it was just joyful
Do you have any works-in-progress being designed that you would like to talk about?
I am now making 'stargazer' a car which has a emotional beauty. I want to beat some luxury cars with this because they are just growing vanity in world-wide.
