CARLOS SHIN

DESIGNER

I am a passionate designer specializing in product development across a broad spectrum of interfaces. I endeavor to identify problems, inspire through design thinking, collaborate with cross-functional teams, bring intuitive and delightful user experiences into reality.

ABOUT ME

I find joy from making people’s lives easier and happier. I’m crafting a location-based social app called Local Edition to make discovering and sharing local favorite spots easier. Before Local Edition, I worked with IMVU thinking about how to better connect people challenging time and space.

Outside of work, I usually read books on how the mind works or listen to Glenn Gould, or both. I make videos to celebrate things.

EXPERTISE

Despite the love for every corner of design process, my specialty is at working with complexity.
