Sometimes good things happen. Sometimes.
Hello. Goodbye. Hello.
Sometimes we are here. Sometimes we are there.
Sometimes it happens. Sometimes it doesn’t. Sometimes. Sometimes.
Sometimes everything is just going great. Sometimes not. Though.
I’ve got three fishes. Three fishes in my pocket. I like my fishes.
Sometimes I wake and see the sun. Sometimes I wake to see the sun.
Everytime. Everytime. Everytime.
Before comes before. After comes after. Then comes then.
We walk to run and run to walk and then, sometimes, we walk to run again.
The more the merrier. The more the more.
Better off. Better on.
We believed. For a short period of time. We believed.
It was only a matter of time.
Plenty of time.

Chris Ro is a graphic designer based in Seoul, South Korea.
ADearFriend is a graphic design studio.
Sometimes they make.
Sometimes they do work.
Chris Ro and ADearFriend work on projects spanning both the cultural and commercial sector. Originally educated at UC Berkeley and the Rhode Island School of Design, the thinking behind this studio connects a diverse range of concepts spanning architecture, graphic design, typography, photography and form making. Chris is continuously fascinated by the curious discussions and participation humans have with form. His recent research interests exist in the concept of ‘digital craftsmanship’ and in the interchange between the computer, hand and form. Chris has also been researching the concept of ‘flow’ originally coined and conceived by Mihály Csíkszentmihályi. This concept came about through a life long fascination for the carefree and jovial states of mind often encountered during making processes. Similarly, the ethos or spirit of Chris and ADearFriend might best be compressed in a quick read of The Urge to Make Things by Leo Lionni. Basically, Chris is happiest when making.
Chris currently teaches design, typography and form making at Hongik University in Seoul, South Korea.
