Graphic designer Kelly Moonkyung Choi's typography project "Oncetype" is an art project that gives new functions to wooden printing type that has lost its original position today.

Kelly Moonkyung Choi mixes natural ingredients such as polygonum indigo, paprika, and gardenia into a soap solution to create multicolored and vibrant patterns, using improvised hand movements. Soap type, produced like casting letters one by one, evokes images of its colorful use back in the day, unlike the dull and monotonous appearance of the unused type today. Like life, soap type will disappear someday. 

The artist captures the splendidness of "Oncetype" in photographs, then brings these images into the computer, applying new colors to them. Every color of the original material is replaced by a Risograph ink, and the type is recreated as prints. The prints created in this way, named "Oncesoap", may last a little longer than the "Oncetype" soap.
