New York, NY, US



My name is Caitlin Dierks. I am a creative problem solver, or a designer who is both logical and creative. My approach to design is three-fold:

1. Discover the genius loci of the site

2. Design with people in mind, or thoughtful design

3. Direct and to the point; focused on overall intent

I am also a self-motivated designer. Instead of relying on competition to motivate me, I am always striving to improve my own "PR" so to speak, or personal record. 

I am a self-starter, eager to jump in and get going on a design problem; preferring  to organize my time and avoid waiting till the last minute to get work done.\
