Hey! I'm Caitlin, a designer and illustrator based in London.

Currently I lead UI and UX design at Drest, a fashion game start-up!

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 🌸
