I’m Colombene [Bēne] Gorton. I work on design & strategy for digital products, services and communications – often on large-scale or complex projects or across a portfolio. I develop and steward user-centered concepts with teams and stakeholders to move high level goals towards successful implementations and outcomes. I work as a consultant, lead, principal, or staff UX designer with overlap in creative direction, information architecture, research, branding, digital strategy, content strategy, product ownership and design management. I have experience working for global tech and marketing clients but currently focus on building design capacity in co-operative, non-profit, public, community-based, and start-up organizations. My passion is innovating for truly people-centered spaces with high levels of craft and purpose.

I’m also interested in movements for system change and think about the future of design, technology, work, consumerism, stories, and culture. I am on the board of the Data Commons Cooperative, log practitioner resources at Possible Futures, and talk to others about their work on a podcast called The New Constructivist. A 3rd gen Angeleno, I live in The Valley with my family, watch sunsets, and listen to a lotta music.

The right circle is Cosmology which includes education, relationships, and culture with icons alluding to love, birth, awareness, ideas, and holding hands. A bright light behind an illustration of a leafed branch is between them.
