“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 foundation where I’m currently responsible for design and providing creative support for the organization’s marketing campaigns and outward-facing activities. 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 enjoy traveling, reading, photography, working on personal projects and curating my cat’s presence on Facebook. Reach me at hello@catrinadulay.com. Follow me on Instagram by searching for user cat.dulay.
