About Me

I am currently Associate Creative Director of Experience & Service Design for a great little agency in Atlanta, Georgia called InReality where I am afforded the unique opportunity to influence projects at almost every conceivable phase of development.  I design objects, environments, and the ecosystem of services around them.  The goal is keenly focused on making services (and the technology that enables them) disappear so that users are able to experience something natural and real.  My background, and passion, is in Industrial Design though I am grateful to have found Service Design as a practice and ideology.  Learning to blend the two has been extremely rewarding and challenging at the same time.  There is uncharted territory to explore and at the core is the user and a need.  All we have to do is connect the two.

I hope you’ve enjoyed your visit to my little space on the internet.  Please leave a comment, like a post, spread the word.  If you would like a detailed resume, let me know and I will be more than happy to pass it along.

Sincerely,
Chris Livaudais
