JEJU, Dec. 20 (Korea Bizwire) – The Jeju government has announced dozens of official Jeju language-inspired commercial design patterns to promote local culture.
According to government officials, 13 design patterns involving the Jeju language, a Korean dialect unique to Jeju Island, have been officially recognized as part of the design project, which began in August.
A variety of items are expected to be developed using the designs, including eco bags, umbrellas, paper wrap and business cards.
Among the 100 Jeju language words initially recommended by members of the public and experts, 30 were chosen based on the findings of a preference survey.
Many of the words in the carefully selected design patterns are positive and creative, encapsulating the beauty of Jeju language.
Examples include “nuyoung nayoung”, which means “you and me”, and “hondimoyoung”, which means “all together”.
The 30 words were then incorporated into a number of design patterns resembling landmark locations and the natural environment of the island, such as the blue sea and the renowned Olle walking trails.
The Jeju government plans to make the design patterns available on its official website in the future.
