My passion for the craft and sport of figure skating, along with this site, kevinshum.com, was featured in the 2016 Squarespace ad campaign, You Should.
The design of kevinshum.com was the inspiration for the new Squarespace tempalte, Eamon.
This past summer, I interned as a Software Engineer at Ori Systems, an MIT-startup transforming and redefining urban living spaces with robotic, shape-shifting furniture. Over the course of 3 months, I built the iOS and Android apps from the ground up. Essentially, the app acts as a remote control, which controls the lights and transforms the furniture. Apps will launch on the App Store and Google Play in early 2017, along with the first Ori furniture units.

On both Android and iOS, I prototyped and built out the User Interface and User Experience of the app, from the login and signup, to the settings and logout pages.
The brightness slider and the novel non-rectangular buttons on the homescreen directly connect to the furniture units.
I am 1 of 18 MIT Admissions Bloggers, writing about student life and culture here on campus. In addition to sharing my thoughts online, I work with the Admissions Office on outreach efforts and connect with potential applicants and admitted students.
App concept developed for the 2016 Accenture Innovation Challenge. In order to combat food waste, Bamboo is a mobile platform in which restaurants can notify local customers of leftover/excess prepared food that they are willing to sell at a discounted rate at the end of a business day.

Prototype a Google Now-style homescreen with card-style layout. Add minimal and information-driven widgets, and easy access to common functions, such as taking a picture, updating location, or taking a note, and apps.
Design Team lead for MIT Code for Good, a student group that runs a month-long IAP class in addition to a semester-long non-profit consulting program. Revamped branding and redesigned logo. Designed t-shirts for students and organizers. Developed profile picture assets for social media pubbing, in addition to print fliers distributed across campus.
For my final project for MAS.111, Fundamentals of Computational Media Design, I pursued a new way of looking at figure skating jump and spin elements by taking frame-by-frame shots and stitching them together into one frame.
After doing multiple takes in order to get the perfect combination of lighting, composure, and composition, I used Photoshop to manually crop out each frame and stitch them together. Different opacities are used to create a sense of progression and movement.
