The Taekwondo Fighters life is no ordinary life, its a life that holds a continuous spark that lights, inspires and aspires dreams and imaginations. Taekwondo for them isn’t just a sport, its a way of life, life full of courage, discipline, honor and passion. They live their days mastering techniques with their heart, soul, and body. Their world has a different dimension of spiritual and physical balance. They fight all the odds, they strive to be the very best, they give it all their strength, all their power, all their love, all their sadness, everything they’ve got, they face pain, they rise and fall, they win and they loose. Their dreams, thoughts, and deep into their core soul wants to achieve something they’ve always dreamed of and wished for. Each fighter is giving his absolute best, aiming for their finest day to come. The Championships is their ultimate goal where they try to seize this moment of greatness that will ever be carved in their’s and everyone else’s heart. To give their best performance and win a medal for themselves, for their country and for their family and friends. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you are from or even how strong you are, its much more than that, its strategy, technique, courage, speed, power etc… all combined together to form this artfully unique, Olympic sport.
I had the privilege to live some of these moments and be part of this amazing sport. It has been an incredible life experience that will always be carved inside me.
The intent behind this project/design and series of visuals is to present a few moments from the fighter’s competition experiences. I have designed the sport
arena’s lines, shapes, and features to reflect some of the Taekwondo aesthetics like Motion, dynamism, speed and sleekness…..
