What did Skid Row Housing Trust need?

Catherine helped Skid Row Housing Trust create customized visual design elements that complement written copy for printed communications and marketing materials.

Why is this project important?

We need a THANK YOU card that sets us apart from everyone else. We want this to be a card that is sophisticated and shows the joy of life after homelessness - something people will WANT to proudly hang on their wall at work or at home.

This project will save us $3,002, allowing us to focus on our other major goals that need to be completed internally, and help us expedite this project!

What did Catherine have to offer?

After a dozen years as a university graphic design instructor, I was ready for a change and am now pursuing freelance design work. I have a strong background in print design, photo manipulation and editing, custom branding and illustration, website design, and copywriting. I'm passionate about making a difference by volunteering my design talents for worthwhile causes, and I look forward to meeting the needs of your organization!

What did they have to say?

Catherine is one of the most organized and communicative people I've worked with! If you don't know all the questions to ask, she will guide you. We seemed to be on the same page so it was extremely easy to work with her and she offered a plethora of options to chose from which made the process fun. Would absolutely work with Catherine again!

I had a terrific experience working with Jackie! From our first interaction, she was extremely organized and had some really solid ideas for the design of the thank-you cards -- but she also welcomed my opinions and suggestions. She was super quick with feedback and answers to my questions, and the entire process was incredibly smooth. Skid Row Housing Trust does such meaningful work in their community, and I definitely look forward to collaborating with Jackie and her colleagues again. If you're considering working with SRHT, I'd encourage you to jump right in! Thank you so much, Jackie! :)
