The CommuniCate is a strange animal, simultaneously a wild creative and a practical realist.
This CommuniCate is seeking a new home for problem solving, creativity and challenges, where her boundless enthusiasm rigorous process and out of the box thinking can be utilised.
As a graphic designer and visual communicator Cates are fascinated by the psychology of how and why we connect with each other. While the wild Cate is most skilled in Graphic design, she also thrives working with her hands, making and creating from book binding to Murphy beds.
Cates are fascinated by Puzzles, I’m not talking about sudoku or the Sunday Telegraph Crossword, to her, problems, any obstacles are just tangles to unpick, Cates do this instinctively. It gets a little annoying frankly. Thriving best in a team, Cates like to have creative minds around to refine raw ideas and encourage useful ones. Cates especially thrive under constraints, to think outside of the box, first, the Cate must understand the box.
This Cate has moved from Copenhagen where she lived for 5 years, to Umeå ,and is always seeking new projects and challenges regardless of location.
If you’re looking for a flexible and creative visual problem solver, consider adopting a CommuniCate today!
