Our Purpose

From Portable's inception over a decade ago, our purpose has been clear and consistent: to use advances in design and digital technology to dramatically transform the lives of citizens and the wider public. Portable consists of a group of individuals who strive to achieve and make big in these purpose areas.

Access to Justice

Since 2012, we’ve made a commitment to effect change in the justice and legal space. A sector that had yet to be transformed by the internet revolution will be with ever lasting changes to the way we as citizens interact with the law.

It’s part of a broader independent research project that Portable is conducting to explore the changing relationship between work, technology and human behaviour.

It has got us thinking about how we, as designers, can help to create smarter and more sustainable infrastructure, for us and generations to come.
