Ditch

My Role —

Editorial &
User Interface Design

Ditch is an iPad publication that discusses the problems with the current education system. The first issue of the publication addresses the “Education Fever” in East Asia. It explains the symptoms, causes, cure, and interviews from students who have experienced the overheated passion for education in Asia.

Inspiration

The inspiration for Ditch is personal. Growing up in a Korean family and living in Seoul for nine years, I have experienced the nation’s overwhelming passion for education. I have when through more than ten different after-school academies and tutors. This passion has a very unique cultural root, and it has become the fuel for South Korea’s rapid economic growth. However, it came with a cost. The passion for education has become an obsession, and in some cases, it is causing devastating outcomes. This interactive editorial piece is dedicated to everyone who is searching for their future path. Our generation and the future generation needs enlightenment to realize the true purpose of education.
