We launched a VC-backed social travel startup that was acquired by TripAdvisor.

Product Design, UX, Development, Marketing, Launch

Living Breathing created and ran Wanderfly, a travel inspiration startup that personalized recommendations based on budget and interests.

We raised three rounds of venture capital to build a travel recommendation engine fueled by social data. We led design, development and marketing, building a user experience that broke many industry conventions. Wanderfly was used by millions, including brands like New York Times, American Express and Travel Channel.

We were hailed as a design innovator, winning a Webby nomination, Time Inc's Top 10 Startups and Entrepreneur Magazine's 100 Brilliant Companies. Wanderfly was later acquired by TripAdvisor, the world's largest travel website.

Rule #1 of Living Breathing:

Always be making something.
