How I Work

I like to prototype early, fail quickly and make decisions based on real data.
I believe great design is never finished. It comes in versions.
I've honed my skill set to allow me to create great work at speed.
I say no to people and projects I am not excited about. I limit myself to working on only a few things in order to deliver my very best work.
I love what I do and have a breadth of exposure behavioral economics, psychology and neuroscience that complement my deep experience in product design.

Education

I created Vanderbilt University's first program in the nexus of behavioral economics, psychology, neuroscience, marketing and product design. I believe a deep understanding of the relationships between these things is an essential path to creating the best products in the world. Products are (usually) for people, after all.

Bespoke Adventure Creation

by Patrick Widen

I've spent nearly a decade traveling the world, mastering the intricacies of becoming a local wherever I may be. I've built a network of passionate purveyors of just about everything, discovered a wealth of incredible places, amassed a collection of off-menu secret items, found my way into dozens of hidden hotspots and so much more.

I've had a lot of absolutely phenomenal experiences. I've also had some bad ones.

For many people, a first visit might be the only one. In these instances, when things go wrong, the majestic memories that might have been turn into experiences never to be forgotten in a different way altogether. Instead of showing up and hoping for the best, I'm now offering a new experimental service.

Drawing on my years of travel, food and nightlife expertise, I'll help design a personal itinerary just for you. For the most discerning clients, I'll even do an advance visit based on your personal preferences and report back on everything from what the service is like at each of your possible hotels to specific dining options that match your unique preferences, cultural options, local contacts and more.

This service is focused on Chicago, Miami, Nashville and New York but can also be handcrafted just for you in any city you choose.
