ABOUT ME Hi there, I’m Caitlin. In a nutshell, I’m a passionate designer, world explorer, life questioner, devoted meditator and addicted baker.

172 Kurraba Rd, Kurraba Point

I was fortunate enough to discover my calling in life soon after finishing school. Upon hearing the quote “art is a smile of the heart, design is a smile of the mind” I felt like I truly knew what I wanted to do - combine art and words to create infinite meanings and messages.

Project Futures | Internship | 2011-2012 Project Futures is a not-for-profit organisation created to target human trafficking in Australia and Asia. My role in this organisation involved the design of the charities up coming Stella Fella campaign. For this project I was required to create branding consistent with the existing Project Futures brand however with a new and fresh feel.
