Cat Lo is a New York City creative designer 
that is versed in UX/UI, Mobile, Product and Marketing Design.

A brief history of my background, I am an only child from a very conservative asian home ruled by a tiger mom and a creative father. I left home in 2006 to the big apple, in hopes of becoming a great designer that I one day dream of. Fresh out of college, I embarked on the big city with a backpack and $600 dollars in my pocket. With the help of my cousin for letting me stay over her apartment, I embarked on a seven-year design journey learning everything under the sun. From agency co-brand marketing promotions at Playboy, direct marketing landing page optimizations at Miva, to building UI/UX/Visual Designs for frontend, responsive, and mobile platforms. My passion and drive for exceeding my personal goals have allowed me to work in fast-paced, multi-facet environment with attention to detail and execute successful project strategies and deadlines.

I’m currently the Art Director at Felix – IAC NYC, where I design and mold the product and user experience of an intelligent advertising solution for businesses using voice transcriptions. In the past, I’ve worked with luxury Wine & Food (Lot18Plated), Movies (World War Z),  Media (Playboy), Coffee (CoffeeMateHamptons Lane), US Govt (OPM.gov), and News (Newser). My heart lies with big branding media advertising, interactive design, and movies.

On my spare time I over-indulge in photography, video gaming, reviewing makeup products, cooking, and dreaming about traveling.

I also have a meme cat named Blu, he’s quite a character. (No, he’s not named after JayZ’s daughter)
