The SangsangMadang company’s website states:

KT&G Imagination Seed is where you grow your artistic imagination:
  1. supports new imaginations
  2. supports and advocates cultural variety and uniqueness.
  3. communicates and shares with the world
The concept of KT&G Imagination Seed:
  1. We aim open projects, such as external co-projects, which allow individuals and the public to realize projects that they can plan, exhibit and perform by themselves.
  2. We pay attention to and seek out small but worthy art works.
  3. We support young artists of design, photography, music bands, etc. with our practical artist support programs.
The Dordt College Department of Art and Design is pleased to announce Young Ae Kim will be on campus Tuesday 11 October as a visiting designer. During the day she will be visiting several classes as well giving an afternoon presentation highlighting her various projects. Young Ae Kim who teaches graphic design at the University of South Dakota in Vermillion is an energetic teacher and versatile designer and artist.

She writes, “I am happy with a design when it makes people smile. There are many ways an object can make someone smile: familiarity, surprise, beauty, satisfaction, pride, simplicity, humor or wonder. If an object stimulates this reaction whilst performing the function for which it was created, then it is well designed.…”
