Cat Quinney

Hello, I’m Cat

I listen and design to make an impact.

Cat Douglas in a past life and now based in Yorkshire, I design for a variety of clients or agencies on-site or remotely from my home studio, no day is the same! Going back I won a 1st prize D&AD student award. Since, I’ve enjoyed collecting over 12 years’ experience in print, branding and logo design, front-end web and magazine design. I’ve got the eye for detail to artwork check to file supply and when working at an agency, I flex to their working processes.

I was Art Director for IDFX Interior Design magazine designing new templates from scratch, enjoying an efficient setup, keeping organised and replying promptly. An interest in lifelong learning, I’ve gained adaptable skills and become versatile with style. 

I value collaboration with colleagues and clients so I work with you, asking questions to define the visual direction. For me, making a difference to the impact of your communications and the potential of your business is what matters. I believe that working through the details with an eye on the overall picture is what can bring about great work.

I feast on creativity and inspiration in life, having been known to intensively delve into projects, whether it’s a new brand identity or the DIY.

If you’d like to find out more about how my process works, discuss how we might work together or ask for no-obligation quotes, please get in touch!
