Catherine (Cat) Wentworth
Catherine is the founder of Creative
Latitude, in many ways, as it was her original post on About.com
Graphic Design forum that jump-started this project.
Cat brings to the Creative Latitude table an excellent design
ability combined with strong project management skills and
a sensitivity to the cross-cultural implications of design.
She has also developed a particular talent for keeping Nigel
and Neil in line when they start getting goofy and bouncing
off in odd directions. (Other Latitudians should be in her
debt for these "cat herding" instincts coming into
A designer's work and their ability to solve a communications
challenge is often based on their life experiences and breadth
of knowledge. It's often what designers pull from to find
the right solution. Given that, Cat has more than an abundant
supply, for if you pick a corner of the globe, it's likely
she's lived there or at least visited. Yes, Cat is a feisty,
blonde haired, blue-eyed designer and first-class citizen
of the world.
Although Cat's location in S.E. Asia may seem remote at first,
while working with her on the development of Creative Latitude
it's as if she's right next door. She gets the work done
and done right while enjoying a lifestyle crafted in
a paradise of sunshine and palm trees. Not a bad trick, really.
For relaxation, Cat plays with watercolour, mixed media, pencil,
and the occasional sculpture. Her hobby sites are Designers Who Blog and Women Learning Thai. She turns on the serious at NO!SPEC.
