“my mind rebels at stagnation. give me problems, give me work.”


Arthur Conan Doyle

I was born in Los Angeles and raised in southeast San Diego. After receiving a degree in graphic design in 2011 and working in web design platform technical support from 2011 to the 2013, I joined a community organization where I’m currently their in-house graphic designer. My work has been published in San Diego Magazine, The San Diego Union-Tribune and other local news publications.

When I’m not designing, I travel, take lots of photographs, read, and curate my cat’s presence on Instagram. View my personal projects. Reach me at hello@catrinadulay.com. Follow me on Instagram at cat.dulay.
