product design + strategy

I create strategic Product, Design, and Brand Systems for passionate businesses.

What I do

Why Work with Me?

I believe that design is a communication tool that can help build a bridge between people. As a Designer I put the needs of the user first, but as a person I am trying to bridge the gap between Introverts and Extroverts. I am bringing in conversations in the workplace that thrive on change for all.

I am also an advocator for Mental Health and Learning Disabilities. In my life I have been blessed with experiences that not a lot of people experience; I had the ability to work with Vans, Nike, Stance, Hurley, and Anaheim Ducks during my years of college. Design is critical to communication and reflects emotion, the individual, psychology and society. I have background knowledge in tech: front-end, web hosting, and web design to help build your traffic into your business.

Love From Clients

"I have had the privilege to work with Caitlin several times on several web projects and designs.  Caitlin has provided my business with designs that I have incorporated into my business. She has designed websites and social media platforms to assist my business advertising and work flow.  Her hands on approach is quick and she enjoys direct communication of ideas and goals. I recommend Caitlin to assist your design business needs. Her knowledge will provide you with appropriate designs for your customer base and she will become an asset to your design team."


Business Owner, Dark Grow Graphics

"It has been wonderful working with Caitlin on Shop My Porch's web and mobile redesign.  Her designs are well thought out and she made sure she understood our audience before giving us design options.  She is incredibly fast at making changes and will explain why she chose to design a certain way.  Highly recommend her work to anyone looking to bring an upscale feel to their website."

"When I needed a reliable designer Caitlin was there.I found working with Caitlin to be seamless and intuitive to my design project needs. She is a responsive and  talented designer with a production artist approach. Which saved me a lot of time and effort in launching my client’s business website. I recommend hiring Caitlin Vargas and would certainly work with her in the future."
