Bolton Design is a consultancy focused on digital product design, user experience, and brand development led by Creative Director, Tracey Bolton. Tracey has spent fifteen years producing award winning design solutions and campaigns for Fortune 500 companies, startups, non-profits and small businesses. She is equally comfortable embedding herself into client teams as she is constructing specialized outside teams depending on the needs of the project.
Tracey was raised in Chicago and received her undergrad degree in Education at Michigan State University and then went on to complete an MFA in Graphic Design from the Savannah College of Art and Design. She began her professional career at Ticketmaster in Los Angeles and worked for a brief stint at the IAC owned digital agency, Cottonblend, where she worked with clients and artists including Cirque du Soleil, NASCAR, MLB, AEG, and Herbie Hancock. In 2006 she co-founded Bolton Design. Today she resides in San Francisco and is an active member of IXDA, NTEN, and AIGA where she formerly held a board position for the Los Angeles chapter.
Depending on the scope of the project, Tracey will either handle the workload herself or build a team of trusted partners to collaborate with. In the past we have augmented in-house teams short on staff or time, consulted large firms and agencies, and led projects for small to large businesses.
Our work has received awards, been featured in magazines, books, and in online publications.
