Jennifer Stevenson co-founded LivIn design, Inc. in 2005 a parent company to SKN design and Storio digital. She creates and manages goods and services including eco-friendly consumer products for mass-market consumption, graphic and web based products including web design, print collateral and identity design as well as consults on various branding initiatives. Her background in design as well as her experience with entrepreneurial ventures gives her a keen insight into the branding needs of a company, the viability of its products, and generally what it takes to create a successful brand.

"I believe that a successfully designed product or service is one that is created with intention, one that is reiterated in a constant search for perfection until the end product is a balance of form and function while producing an emotional connection with the end user. We can all sense that there is a global shift happening in the way that we look at goods and services. More and more people are asking: Do I really need this? Is it produced in an ethical way? What will be left over when its life cycle is complete? By employing critical design thinking, something that I immensely enjoy, we can successfully answer these questions and consequently build the products and services of tomorrow.
