Seokyung is an expert for design materials. We look for the high quality design materials from overseas qualified suppliers and introduce them to the local clients.
Seokyung thinks of design first prior to material.
As a design material supplier, Seokyung thinks of design first prior to material. Only when the design that the material seeks for is valuable and meaningful, the material can become worth to be used and shine as the design media. We try to understand the design materials as the effective tools for fine design and to avoid the typical mistake of falling into the materials themselves without consideration of the meaning in regard to design.
Design material is also the area of science and technology.
Design material is also the area of science and technology. As material industry is one of the place where the fastest development continues, the value and the range of design material has been expanded consistently. The way to use design material is also getting complicated.
Accordingly, Seokyung would like to become an expert for design materials who thinks of design first and understands technology in advance.
What we call our active attitude and philosophy for design is
Our major business areas for design materials are graphic design area, industrial design area and interior design area. Graphic design area is the most important business sector where all the creativities are combined with papers and post-processes. In the industrial design area, the brand-new materials with the outstanding technologies make products looks attractive and innovative, and moreover make them innovative in reality. As we’ve seen moving trends for higher living standard, interior design area where we’ve entered recently may have a lot of design potential.
Graphic Design Area
In graphic design area, Seokyung has been regarded as one of the major distributor for fine paper and stamping foil. We not only supply such materials but also communicate with our clients for bringing them deeper inspiration for design potential of those materials. By investigating market trends, making own creative samples, and attending design exhibitions, we do our best to understand the design concept and possibility that we can find from our materials, and to share it with people in the end.
We. Design. Paper. Store
We operate a store named as We. Design. Paper. following the name of our identity for graphic design area. The store is located in Seoul downtown for easy approaching and well-prepared with paper and samples made by inches. People whoever like design and paper can visit the store and experience our fine materials in any time.
Industrial Design Area
Seokyung is concentrating to supply high-tech decoration materials for brand-new design of various industrial products, i.e. automotives, electronics and cosmetics. We investigate the design trends in advance to the market and develop new materials that may meet such upcoming trends.
In parallel, we also make efforts on introduction and development of new technical processes needed to apply new design materials on real products, as such new materials require new applying technologies in many cases.
Interior Design Area
Interior design industry, especially commercial interior field always looks for up-to-date materials. According to higher living standard, there increases the demand for new materials suitable for it. As Seokyung recognizes the interior design area as a new business opportunity, we have developed new ideas for this interesting field.
Our first developed idea is COLORSTIC which is an outstanding design-oriented acrylic board. COLORSTIC is an acrylic board having various design effect on top of the surface, so that it can be applied for VMD, sign panels and any kind of plastic board decoration.
With the vision of advanced design, Seokyung has established and practised two principles of business management.
Needless to say, it’s too obvious that Seokyung is based on design management as the company which handles design materials. We consider design as the whole company’s strategic goal rather than just supply materials. Thus, we establish own core vision and value from design philosophy.
In practice, we make strategic decisions with top consideration of design and keep flexible organizational culture in order to enhance own creativity. And we try to expand the value to our clients and society, so finally we can promote the sociocultural growth.
Sustainability management emphasizes company’s universal sociality. Beyond the company as an individual economic unit just having the profit-making object, it claims to stand for more mature company having clear vision and goal and fulfilling the social responsibility.
As a design material expert, Seokyung’s strategic decisions based on sustainability management can finally accord with the goal of promoting sociocultural growth from our design management, so it will perform a role of concrete guide to prepare for the here and the hereafter.
As design materials are applied on packages of so many kinds of products, the influence by design materials to the environment would not be small. So, from a stage of selection, Seokyung judges materials by environmental effects through its whole life cycle, i.e. raw material, manufacturing process, supply chain, using process and disposal.
By these efforts, all the materials Seokyung handles keep the highest environmental standard. Most of paper items are FSC®-certified and all stamping foils accord with RoHS and REACH regulations.
