After a brief career in the corporate world, Cate set out on her own as a freelance graphic designer in 2006. Cate believes good design goes beyond aesthetics.
For her, design is also a problem-solving tool, and is a means of connecting people with the products and services they use.
Applying this philosophy to her work, Cate uses visual design to elevate brands and help clients meaningfully connect with their audience. For nearly 15 years, Cate has worked with clients and companies of all sizes, from local start up businesses to corporate chains. In each of these partnerships, the goal is the same – creating designs that not only look good, but designs that also make your company more valuable.
In 2019, Cate joined In the Black Marketing and Media Consulting as a Partner and Creative Director, bringing her expertise of “form” to enhance the strategies of “function” In the Black Marketing and Media Consulting creates. She brings those strategies to life by visually communicating ideas that inspire, inform, and captivate consumers.
Cate is a 2001 graduate of the College of Charleston, with a degree in Communications with an emphasis on Media. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her husband and sons, traveling to the beach, as well as serving on the boards of several non-profit organizations.
