Michael Hardy, a Supply Chain guru turned UX Designer at SapientNitro, believes that good experiences occur where lifestyle meets logistics.
As a graduate student at Indiana University studying Human-Computer Interaction and Design, Michael was sponsored by the American Bar Association created an experience strategy and a micro-volunteering mobile prototype connecting disaster survivors with Pro-bono legal representation. Through and extensive ethnography of survivors of Super-storm Sandy, lawyers, FEMA staff, and policy experts, Michael learned how design inspires innovation and meaningful experiences.
Michael believes in the power of blue, Zebra .07 ink pens, prefers secondhand blazers to t-shirts as travel keepsakes, and has cut his own hair since 2004. As a southerner living in Boston, he has yet to find a place that serves a proper glass of “sweet tea”.
