Palisades Park, NJ, US



Growing up as an 1.5 generation of Korean-American, Joowon Lee had to go through lots of obstacles in searching for her identity. In some aspects, having unclear sense of be- longing may seem bit unstable. How- ever, when it comes to designing, it was more of advantage to her in creating a fusion of different cultures to make up her own characteristic in designing.

Gathering all the sources together and eliminating the needless to full- fill with what’s only needed is ideal style of her design. She pursues de- signing with limited elements is the true beauty of design.
