Steve Chamberlain


Steve is driven by his passion for solving the most interesting human problems through positive and responsible design at the intersection of business and strategy. As an Inventing Director in Chicago, he has over 15 years experience transforming business challenges into creative impact. He leads his teams to start with user empathy, collaborate to craft a strategy, and use human-centered design to create breakthrough ideas.

Prior to joining ?Whatif!, Steve was a strategy and innovation director at several global creative consultancies. From working with the world’s most innovative technology leader to help launch a new smartphone, to attracting more profitable business travelers for one of the coolest airlines, to reimagining the future of snacking and frozen food for a new generation, Steve brings his expertise and passion to every project.

When Steve is not busy, you might find him hiking a national park trail or skiing the mountains with his wife Heather and two children, Emily and Andrew. Although a native of Boston, Steve dropped his wicked accent for Chicago and currently lives just north of the city and a quick bike ride to Lake Michigan.
