Jobby Job-Job

As some of you may know I have been running around San Francisco on and off the past 2 months. As my internship at JPL sadly comes to an end, I had set up several interviews with various companies through the help of the Art Center Alumni network, very good friends and family members. I’ve had a great time and tons of support and after much careful thought I have accepted an offer from Frog Design in San Francisco. This feels like the NBA Draft or something haha.

My official position will be Interaction Designer. I’m Excited. So what does this mean for the QUEST to Google? It will still be on going, I’ve met some very nice people within Google who have me on the radar. However I believe Frog will be a very good step for me towards the future. This blog will continue and so will the journey.

Star Wars Photo Contest

Please help me by voting for my photo in the Star Wars Are you the biggest fan contest! You can vote once a day until November 7th. I know it is asking for a lot but every vote counts! They told me to give up because this other guy has over 200 votes and has great friends that help him by voting once a day. But I will not go down without a fight. Please help by going to this link or clicking the photo below once everyday. Thank you for all your continued support. Vote Here

Support

Thank you to all my family and friends who have been with me through school and all the craziness that came with it. With your continued support my interviews have been going great. I continue to network and network and meet new people in the industry and it has helped me get in many doors of companies I only dreamed of getting to talk to. I wasn’t qualified for all of them but it was great to just speak with some of these very talented companies. Thank you again and again. Now the waiting game begins.

Graduation: Prep

I wanted to change the way people grabbed my business cards at my grad show, so when visitors reached for a card off my table they were in for a little surprise. Thanks to the guys and gals at Evil Mad Science I was able to put together this interactive LED panel that uses sensors to detect changes in light value.

Google: Cr-48 Chrome Notebook

Unfortunately despite my early application to get one of these awesome notebooks, I did not end up actually receiving one. However, my friend Alex was lucky enough to get his hands on… 2! (now someone tell me how that is fair). No he did not give me but he let me examine it. It’s amazingly fast and I know Google was saying the shell of the laptop is temporary but I absolutely love it. It has a soft matte coating and its ENTIRELY black.

If you’re listening Google, you can still send me one, you have my info :)

New Portfolio

Graduation is creeping up in about a week. It’s hard to believe I’ve called this place home for so long (Art Center College of Design) and now I finally have reached the finish line. Time to find a job, make a living and lets not forget – repaying those friendly lenders for all my loans.

A fresh new look on life requires a fresh new portfolio, hopefully the new website will help engage the viewer and really get close and personal with my work. NO really, literally get close with my work, I made sure my site had full bled images to fill up each page, its pretty different than what I had been doing before. There are always tons of people who will tell you what to do or how you should do things, many told me to step away from the little hints of Star Wars, but I did it anyways. This website is mines, this portfolio is mines and whatever is on it is a part of me. So I’m going to do just that, do me (yes that is me on the front page). www.kevinkwok.com

A tip: you can navigate the site in 2 ways. One – clicking the thumbnails at the bottom of each project. Two – clicking the left and right arrows that also appear on each project.

Another thing about graduation…Google rep is coming. This is one of the biggest moments for me, this blog, and the whole kevinforgoogle campaign this is my first shot at something I have been longing for. Cross your fingers people – here we go.
