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.\
