June Shin, Reminders

June Shin’s banner design Reminders offers a response to the question, ‘how do we find inner peace?’ The verticality and symmetry of the designs are reminiscent of totem poles that embody stories and the lessons they carry, and are presented as pillars for a visitor’s own journey toward inner peace.
