John Kim


As a kid, I dreamt of being an FBI agent or forensic scientist. I spent most of my days performing investigations, analyzing, deconstructing, and figuring out why things are made in certain ways.

Today, as a designer, I still analyze, deconstruct, and figure things out. I also love to create relatable stories through my design process. I dive deep to discover hidden opportunities and provide breakthroughs that will transform lives on both a micro and macro scale.

So basically, I am an investigator, who seeks innovative and real world solutions using a tool called design.
