MOJA: Museum of Joseon Attire
Brand Identity
Graphic Design
Museum of Joseon Attire is a theoretical museum located in Seoul, Korea that showcases the past, present, and future of Hanbok. Hanbok, literally meaning “Korean clothing”, refers to clothing worn during the Joseon dynasty. As Korea is rapidly globalizing and is quite influenced by western culture, many Koreans seek to preserve the traditions and keep the hanbok culture alive. With younger Korean's determination to hold onto the culture of Hanbok, MOJA celebrates its profound history and inspires hope for the future.

Brand Identity ↴
Integrating the rectangular imagery of traditional Joseon architecture and combining the weaving elements of cloth, the logo portrays the abbreviated monospaced letters, MOJA, stacked on top of each other. This stacked and geometric visual is also similar to Hangul, or the Korean alphabet. The grid of the logo was inspired by a crosshatch graphic element to represent both the physical aspect of weaving of the hanbok and represent the symbolic aspect of combining the past, present, and future of hanbok.
From the logo grid, the graphic elements are patterns of rectangular and square shapes. that follows the crosshatch design, all of my secondary graphic elements relate to the weaving of hanbok.
