Cate Bebe Sutton
I currently work at Heriot-Watt University.
I believe you can’t beat a good creative brain storm and a giggle to get those ideas flowing. Collaborating with other creatives is where the magic happens.
I like to keep up to date with new skills. Embracing the ‘ooo’ moments when a new skillset is discovered, learnt and put into practise. I also love to share the ooo’s.
Their role is to maintain creative thoughts and wellbeing with daily walks on the nearby beach, hills and woods.
I like to keep things simple and strive for design solutions that work effortlessly. A strong rationale built from experience, curiosity and research.
My work has picked up a few awards over the years however the real recognition for me comes from satisfied clients and great outcomes.
Commitment, generosity alongside experience and skills are the values I tirelessly support clients with to reach the best design solution.
My portfolio showcases a snapshot of design projects over the years. From brief to production, my attention to detail is at every stage.
A beautiful presentation – it’s so well developed and better than a lot of similar work from agencies. The inspiration slides make the link between nature and the mathematical patterns…and explain how the wellbeing and environment route was chosen. The design section is really lovely and the logo works well across the different assets – love the signage etc. Colour palette is also good. A really lovely piece of work and I hope the next stage goes well.The National Robotarium Brand PresentationMarketing Manager, Brand Steering Group
Cate established our website and the look and feel of all our resources, quick guides and toolkits. She has been a patient, generous, and quietly inspiring friend of the LTA from its very beginning. Cate worked tirelessly to produce all our resources to a hugely tight schedule prior to the launch of the LTA.Learning and Teaching Academy: LaunchThe Learning and Teaching Academy Team
Cate has designed at speed all our Supporting Student Learning Online (SSLO) Toolkit and Responsive Blended Learning (RBL) guides. Her talent brings our words and ideas life. They ensure colleagues across the University and beyond can access ideas in ways that will inspire them to engage and act on the suggestions.Learning and Teaching Academy: ResourcesThe Learning and Teaching Academy Team
The award is richly deserved for both the technical and pedagogic support offered to our community, but also for the way in which it was offered. Collegiality, teamworking and partnership have been defining features of Heriot-Watt’s work during 2020. This Award recognises that, and is a real cause for celebration at the end of an extraordinary year.Association of Learning Technologists (ALT), Team of the Year Award 2021Professor John W Sawkins, Deputy Principal
Thanks for all you have done, and continue to do, to support and enhance learning and teaching across our global University. It is greatly appreciated.
The building design is a triumph within significant constraints, in no small part because of the branding. Your design commitment and creativity on this project has far exceeded that of any previous external design consultants employed by the Project Team.The National Robotarium: BuildingHead of Project Services Estates & Facilities
Please accept the thanks of the Project Team for an outstanding contribution on your part. We look forward to working with you on the next project.
These are absolutely amazing!! I love your design and colour palette - thank you so much for your brilliant work! They are so fun and it really captures the range and energy of the Trail content. The overlaps and fusion of the designs are just lovely and really flattering to the eye.Discovery Trail, Heriot-Watt Edinburgh CampusHeriot-Watt Engage Team
