TYLER SCHOOL OF ART, TEMPLE UNIVERSITY

Alex Kim is a Senior Graphic and Interactive Design with Entrepreneurial Studies major at Tyler School of Art and Architecture. Born to left-brained parents, he is grateful for their unconditional support. He has lived in or near Philadelphia all his life but is determined to grow old elsewhere in the secluded mountains. Tyler is a believer in design thinking and a pragmatist that likes to create things that make the human experience just a little easier. He has recently been exploring the world of research-informed design and user experience. It stresses him out on a weekly basis, but he keeps coming back.
