Hey! I'm Caitlin, a designer (and dilettante) based in London.

Currently I'm Head of User Experience at Drest, the world's first luxury fashion game!

Game user experience design has been the focus of my professional career - from leading Pet Rescue Puzzle Saga at King  to skins for Minecraft Console Editions; even games to teach a language!

I delight in building high performing teams, helping designers grow their careers and improving design culture across organisations 🌸
