    Hotel Express 284 is an exhibition designed to examine the process of settling down with the introduction and spread of hotel culture and the multilayered aspects of hotels today.

    In this exhibition, Urbanbooks transformed the exhibition venue into the City Travel Information Center. This information center was inspired by the Gyeongseong Tourist Information Center. A pamphlet was made with the concept of traveling to the past, present, and future, in which Sandoll ChilsungBoatyard was used. Younghwan Min, who was the first man who traveled around the world in Korean history, offered a travel course that provided visitors with a unique experience by transcending time and space.

    Sandoll Chilsung Boatyard is a typeface based on the original handwriting on a map of an old boatyard which is now re-born as a new cultural complex, located in Sokcho, Gangwon-do. Due to its direction of the diagonal stroke, the overall appearance of the typeface looks like a diamond. The brush tip movements and traces from the original drawing are reinterpreted and refined with the modern sense of beauty. Sandoll ChilsungBoatyard stands out when it is used in headlines. Also you can experience and deliver the original style and the characteristics when the font exceeds 24pt.
