Catherine Weis (weiscreative.com) Visual and Graphic Designer of Print, Web, Strategy and Innovation in Oakland, CA the Bay Area.
INNOVATION. DESIGN. STRATEGY.
Design is my passion. Through the experiences I have had designing and building brands, I have found the importance in how emotion can capture the individual consumer, push the envelope, and in turn, challenge my role to communicate information effectively.
I'm an effective communicator, able to lead and motivate others and sell ideas to clients through great design and mad presentation skills. By utilizing trend and market research that support client objectives I can help solve for any design challenge.
I'm an award-winning designer in the Bay Area, having over 10 years of experience in branding/identity, packaging, retail, promotional, web and management. Aside from my career I spend my time developing my art blog/event community and playing with my son and husband in the town that I have grown to call home, Oakland.
