About Orange Gate

We’re a design and development studio redefining how people and technology work together. Robots are coming and we can help. We specialize in creating intelligent, elegant and compassionate robot interactions.


Our Name

Orange Gate Consulting was inspired in 2005 by an installation in Central Park, New York, comprised of 7,503, sixteen-foot-high, hand-sewn “gates” along 37km.

According to our founder, Janneke Ritchie, “The installation showed that good design is experiential, and that ambition and ability are fruitless without collaboration. The gates reflect our polygonal, interdisciplinary approach—we are engineers, journalists, artists, and programmers. Today, the polygonal gates continue to inform and inspire our human-centric approach to technology adoption.”
