This is the personal site and portfolio of Joe Bergantine, a Bozeman, Montana – based user experience designer and Web/application developer.
A combined interest in technology and art, specifically photography, since childhood lead me to receive a pragmatic and often self-directed education; learning studio photographic lighting, color film processing, and digital layout and design in independent study while my school mates attempted to amass AP credits. After high school, I saught and received a BS in Graphic Design from the Art Institute of Portland.
In Portland, OR, I worked as a production artist and freelance graphic designer before moving back to my hometown of Bozeman, MT to join O’Berry Collaborative as a graphic and Web designer, eventually shifting to focus on Web design and development full time.
After growing out an interactive department at O’Berry for a few years I left to take on a similar role as Interactive Producer at MercuryCSC, a Bozeman-based marketing agency specializing in travel and outdoors. In 2014 I started Kinsa, a creative consultancy focused on user-centric design and development. I am also a User Experience Designer / Python and iOS Developer for 4c Sports and manage the design, marketing and social media for Montana Multisport.
I'm an avid yogi and triathlete and enjoy cycling and running around Bozeman with my Black Labrador, Eddie.
