About me
Hello there, my name is Catriona Maciver-Whyte, but since that's a bit of a mouthful, I go by Cat. After studying at Duncan of Jordanstone, I graduated with my honours degree in graphic design. I now consider myself an illustrator/designer/digital artist that's based just north of Edinburgh (or Fife as some call it). Everything has always begun with a pencil and paper. It's a habit I have that I don't seem to be able to break. I then take the drawings to the computer and play with them until they look right. I love strong colours, bold shapes, fun lettering and typography, and a dramatic Gradient. Other than my art, I'm a bit of a geek that enjoys an engaging story in any nerdy format. Cooking is my other passion, always from scratch and probably with marmite or hot sauce, although not at the same time (yet!). My home life is currently just my loving husband and myself. We are up for any adventure, no matter the size, the last one being our honeymoon to Japan. I am wishing daily, for a fluffy critter to keep us company and supply us with cuddles.
Projects
  • Created Brand Film
    Created Brand FilmA brand film produced as part of a motion graphic course with created academy using both 2d and 3d animation. In the summer I joined Created Academy for a foundation in motion graphics course. Three months to learn the processes for creating ideas, presenting a pitch deck with storyboards and style frames, and going through both After Effects and starting a dive into Cinema 4D! Such a short time to learn so much and after a few finishing touches, this is the final outcome.
