I'm Kate Bender!
BFA Industrial Design // BFA Service Design
Here is a little about me and why I decided to become a designer. I grew up on the front range of Colorado where I was always riding dirt bikes, exploring the world around me, building with legos, and always creating. I learned from an early age that I loved working with people. I loved getting to know new friends, asking questions, I loved hearing different perspectives.
When I got to college I found Service Design and Industrial Design, two paths that would take me to a world of creating for people. More recently my passion has moved towards the world of DEI and working to challenge designers to place equity in the middle of their process. Don't hesitate to reach out and ask me any questions!
