I’m very proud of this 10-year and ongoing collaboration with Santa Cruz’s Catamaran, a virtual descendant of the now-defunct journal Kayak. Every quarter, this modern, sleek-looking publication collects fiction, essays, poetry, and art to celebrate nature, movement, and freedom found where the American west ends and the Pacific Ocean begins. Bookish Design is responsible for the design of the overall template, as well as the layout of every issue, working organically and collaboratively with Catherine Segurson, the founding editor.
