Carissa Catalina

I am a freelance graphic designer based in Los Angeles, California with a Bachelor's of Fine Arts Degree in Graphic Design from CSU Long Beach. I am very proficient in the use of Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, and After Effects. I design a wide array of projects such as logos, brand identity, vector illustrations, advertisements, spreads, image manipulation, motion graphics, user interface design, and more.  

My passions are snowboarding, hiking, cooking, drawing/painting, and photography. I also have a strong desire to construct my projects with various innovative materials. My goal in life is to make a difference in our world by improving the environment through effective and realistic solutions and removing the obstacles to do this, as well as bring awareness that we have the power to change the direction of our future and the future of others. 

Designer Development

I have a strong academic interest in art, mathematics, and science. I am fascinated about how things worked and the laws of cause and effect. My love for nature, art, and problem solving are the key assets that shape me as a designer. My passion for design grows as I watch companies and clients I've worked for develop into something bigger using my design concepts and innovative strategies.
