- The aim of this study is researching the interaction between Russian constructivist graphic image and the East Asian typography, particularly Korean typography which has different features, compared to Western letters. For this purpose, graphic design that appeared in media such as newspapers, magazines and books during the 1920-30s in Korea is investigated. In conclusion, Russian constructivist images in Korea were composed with traditional calligraphy and created distinctive visual culture because of the political and economic colonial condition at that time, while constructivist images in Russia and Europe were used mainly with sanserif typography that considered to have international characteristic.
