Hi, I'm Chris.

I'm a product designer who is passionate about cities & public transit. I'm on the design team at Remix and have previously worked with companies such as Airbnb, Snap and Expedia. Get in touch at carvin@gmail.com or follow me on Twitter!

  • Airbnb: Designing for Guests with Disabilities

    I've been working on an initiative at Airbnb to help guests with physical disabilities find places to stay that meet their needs.

  • Where the Streetcars Used to Go

    I created this interactive microsite visualizing San Francisco's long-gone streetcar routes. It was featured by SF Examiner, Hoodline and more.

  • Vurb: Discovery and Recommendations

    I designed this new discovery experience for Vurb's mobile app, giving users a daily guide to trends around the web and places nearby.

  • Expedia for iPhone and Android

    I was an interaction & visual designer at Expedia for four years, where I designed many pieces of their mobile app like travel itineraries, flight booking, and the entry experience.

  • Expedia for iPad and Tablets

    This revamp of Expedia's iPad and tablet app put a focus on planning vacations and longer trips. Users can browse hotels and flights in their destination at the same time.

  • Overlap

    A concept I designed and prototyped with a colleague to let friends create and coordinate casual plans. Users can create a plan for a flexible time or place, and change venues or times as the plan approaches.

  • baconreader

    I designed, developed and marketed this reddit client for Android. OneLouder Apps acquired the app from me in 2011, and I worked with their product manager and developers to turn the beta into a public product with millions of installs.
