Heyo! I'm Catrina but you can call me Cat.
By day, I’m a creative manager and designer who dabbles in food photography. By night, I’m a designer and illustrator who dabbles in food discovery. Currently, I work with Just Eat + SkipTheDishes where I eat lots of food and get sh*t done.
Focus areas: manage, mentor and oversee creative. Delve in print design, brand, out-of-home media, digital advertising, illustration, photography, and motion.
My Story in a Nutshell —
Prior to considering design as a career, I studied both culinary arts and interior design. I interned with Chatelaine Magazine where I worked on monthly (published) handmade projects, Cityline features and prop styling for food and home.
I first found an interest in graphic design when I was introduced to prepress layouts. My curiosity soon lead me to books on graphic design and a number of software tutorials. Sometime between designing my own fictional magazine and lugging pumpkins around for a set, I realized graphic design is where my mind belongs and heart desires.
I've received my bachelor's degree in graphic design, worked with start-ups, agencies, and launched a freelance business.
Some companies I've worked with: Strategyzer, Idea Couture, Hudson's Bay Co, Just Eat, SkipTheDishes and co-founded an e-juice company—Tempest E-Juice.
Partners I've worked with: Pattison Outdoor, TIFF, Astral Media, Toronto Blue Jays, Snapchat, CHL, Johnson & Johnson, CARA Brands, Isobar, The Score, Leo Burnett, Captivate, and independent restaurants across Canada.
Thanks for getting to know me.
