“Cathy brought her vast experience in both design and advocacy to create an exceptional communication piece, which was used by the Wisconsin Arts Board to communicate directly with legislators in Wisconsin’s 72 counties. Cathy’s 'can do' attitude and take-charge leadership style ensured that we were able to deliver critical information to decision makers within a very short period of time.”

Brian Kelsey
Chair, External Relations Committee, Wisconsin Arts Board, and Managing Director, Peninsula Players Theatre, Fish Creek, Wisc.

“There’s a term—a ‘closer’—that refers to a person who can be counted on to get things done. Having worked with Catherine Lange for many years, first as co-workers and now as business colleagues, I know for sure that she is both a closer and an opener. I can count on her to get complex projects done, on time, within budget and wonderfully executed. As important, she is a delightful brainstorming partner, always open to ideas, feedback and new approaches. I have witnessed her TLC and her CLC (continuous learning cycle) with projects. I consider her an important resource for my agency!”

“Our organization has been working with Cathy Lange for years, and her visualization and pixel-perfect skills never cease to amaze us. In addition to being an expert in her field of graphic design, she’s also an incredible communicator and project manager. Through Cathy’s designs, we’ve been able to bring new light to the nuanced and often confusing world of child care in Illinois. Cathy has been a tremendous help in our marketing efforts and is an absolute pleasure to work with!”

Jemilah Senter & LILIAN MATSUDA
Director of Marketing & Communications | Policy Associate, Illinois Action for Children, Chicago

“As soon as I put Catherine’s beautiful photographs of my inn on my Water Otter Inn website, my bookings jumped considerably. With her beautiful photos, I was also able to go on Airbnb and draw from a greater pool of guests. Catherine works hard for you, has a good aesthetic eye, and is honest when she feels you might be missing the aesthetic mark. I value and trust her opinion.”

Colene Lee
Owner, Water Otter Inn, Washburn, Wisc.

“Cathy Lange is the person I call when I have a project that needs more than a visual design. She is a thought partner, strategic thinker, and makes sure her designs are not only compelling but accomplish the multiple objectives of the project. As a result, she consistently produces work that exceeds my expectations! She’s always professional and delivers ahead of schedule. I recommend her highly!”

Mary Stonor Saunders
Executive Director, Strides for Peace, Chicago

“What I appreciate most about working with Cathy is her care and concern for the final product. She is a talented designer, but also a genuine partner in whatever project we’re working on together. She goes beyond the usual scope of duties to ensure that we’ve thought of every possibility or potential pitfall. Cathy fully adopts each design challenge—and we always land on a solution that works!"

Mary O’Brien
Chair, Apostle Islands and Chequamegon Bay Community Funds, Bayfield, Wisc.

“Catherine designs user-friendly pieces with creativity and clarity. Whether a simple invitation or complex magazine content, she understands how to create a hierarchy of information that communicates crisply and beautifully. Without hesitation, I’ve chosen to work with Catherine at every place I’ve been employed since we first met in 1991.”
