Michael Lum

MA work

Coming from the art world, through museum experience and a background in painting and printmaking, coupled with a lifelong interest in new technologies, my design practice strives to combine the hand crafted and tech savvy into the language of communications.


From exhibition design to research projects about the future of transportation to large-scale murals, my work draws on these interests to create projects that are emotionally resonant and current while maintaining focused design principles.
