Hi, I’m Desi.

Desi GonzalezBased in Austin, TX, I design experiences for cultural and civic engagement.

For the last three years, I led digital strategy at the Andy Warhol Museum. There, I spearheaded large-scale technology projects that connect audiences to Warhol’s life in new and innovative ways, through channels such as interactive gallery experiences, mobile applications, and websites.

Before that, I worked at an IDEO-led human-centered design studio called La Victoria Lab in Peru, developed interpretive experiences at the Museum of Modern Art, and managed a kids website at the Whitney Museum of American Art. My writing has been featured in publications including Art in America, Art Papers, Indiewire, and The Brooklyn Rail. I’ve been invited to speak about art, design, and technology at events held by organizations including Google Design and We Are Museums and in places as near as New York and as far as Riga, Latvia. I currently serve on the board of MCN, the Museum Computer Network.

I have a B.A. in linguistics and art history from Emory University and an M.S. in comparative media studies from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. I think words and pictures are pretty rad.

Let’s work together

With more than eight years of experience working at the intersection of culture, technology, and storytelling, I am available to consult on your next project. My focus areas include:
