As an illustrator, bookmaker, and all-around creative, Haley’s greatest inspiration comes from Seoulful design – that is, her Korean heritage. In her work, she tries to capture the familial warmth of her childhood, the same feeling she would get hearing stories of her grandparents’ meeting during the Korean War, traveling together and starting a life stateside.
With her grandmother, Bonnie, as her hero, it’s no wonder Haley describes herself as an “old soul.” She appreciates classic films like White Christmas and You’ve Got Mail, walking around bookstores, exploring new coffee shops, and being outside in autumn.
True to her geriatric spirit, one of Haley’s favorite creative pastimes is the art of bookbinding. Her holiday project The Jolly Book for Cooks & Travel utilized a double-sided accordion fold style, displaying her eye for typography and form.
The design team at Mighty 8th loves Haley for her rich and thoughtful approach to each project.
