Caitlin Workman is a multidisciplinary art director, designer, and creative strategist. She specializes in innovation, branding, interactive, and campaigns for lifestyle and startup clients. She is currently based in New York City. 



My name is Caitlin Workman and I am an art director and strategist. I value the problem-solving possibilities of design, refined craft in its execution, and the entrepreneurial drive required to get things done. I've developed and launched brands for a wide range of clients spanning the beauty, fashion, retail, consumer packaging, tech, and restaurant industries. 

Working with clients and teams, I craft innovative stories, brands, businesses, and experiences to help change the world. Integrating design thinking, human-centered design, strategy, and art direction, I create compelling brand messages that inspire action. Guided by critical study in business and innovation, my process embraces divergent thinking, experimentation, play, and collaboration. A conduit between strategy and creativity, I aim to discover insights and new opportunities–believing in asking the right questions before designing the right answer. I helps clients innovate by designing conditions to engage opportunity and imagine the future. I believe that leaders must have curiosity and courage to construct cultures of possibility and if you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life.

I am also the founder of CW Collection, a design brand known for bold colors and patterns. For custom work, collaborations, wholesale, licensing & sales inquires, please contact me at: cworkman.design@gmail.com
