I tell stories and eat typography for breakfast.

My name is Catherine Lorenzo Realce. I am a senior art director at Amazon, and graphic designer and sole proprietor of visualchemist, a design + letterpress studio.

I grew up in San Diego, California, where my parents raised me on a steady diet of serifs and sunshine. I earned my BFA in Visual Communications at California State University Long Beach in 2002. At this time, I reside in Seattle, Washington, where I am currently pursuing my MA degree in Design Strategy and Innovation.

I have followed my passion for conceptual thinking, typography and letterpress and when not busy being a visual storyteller, one can usually find me experimenting with analog technology, enjoying sushi, traveling, or frolicking through local snowy mountains.

This portfolio highlights a small sample of my design experiments, solutions, and reactions. My work has been featured in a few fancy places, here and there. (I’ll get some links posted soon!)

In the meantime, here I am. Welcome to my world: LinkedIn // Twitter // Facebook // Instagram // Dribbble
