About Cat Hartigan

Photo of Cat Hartigan

Hi! My name is Catherine (a.k.a. Cat) Hartigan and I'm a graphic designer and artist all rolled into one creative package! I've been a graphic designer for over eight years and an artist basically my whole life! I am a graduate of the Algonquin College three year Graphic Design Program, and I’m working full-time as a graphic designer for a registered Canadian charitable organization in Ottawa. Working with my clients, I ensure that my designs support my client’s message and branding. Please take a look at my work to see my skills firsthand.

I’ve always been an artistic person, and I love to experiment with all types of art − nothing is off limits. I enjoy painting in acrylic and watercolour, and most recently I’ve been experimenting with linocut and silkscreening. I also designed a line of cre8tivecat cards that I sell on Etsy and at local art events.

While I love art and design, my other passions include yoga, animals, music, and my partner in crime, Craig!
