Selected clients include: University of San Diego; San Diego State University; Institute of Contemporary Art, San Diego (formerly Lux Art Institute); Balboa Park; The Old Globe theatre; the San Diego Asian Film Festival; and various institutions of higher education in the U.S.

Curious about the palpable tensions of communication, Cathy's personal work and research explore visual poetics that intersect creative writing, typographic experiments, and intermedia print processes.

Cathy works as a full-time designer and is passionate about mentoring aspiring designers as an educator in the San Diego community.
