Caitlin Kachmar

Caitlin Kachmar studied Industrial Design at Virginia Tech. She grew up surrounded by a variety of art thanks to her three older siblings, from vintage comics to video games. She fostered her own exploration in the arts through sewing, illustration, and ceramics. All of that led to an engineering course in high school where she was introduced to Industrial Design.

The concept of creating work that would consider functionality, personality, and usability shaped her understanding of art as a career. She’s primarily interested in toy design, ranging from adolescents to collectors. Whether the finished piece is meant to elicit bright-eyed curiosity or discerning admiration, she’s dedicated to quality and exploration in every field of design, currently illustration and graphic design!
