The Designer

Catherine Menard


Catherine Menard is a graduate of Art Center College of Design where she received her Bachelor of Science in Environmental Design. She is currently working as a freelance spatial designer, graphic artist, and collaborator. She has been a part envisioning the future of spaces with companies such as Kimpton, Xanterra, Boeing + Teague, Motorola, and Toyota.

Her focus, however, has resided in her partnership with Moule & Polyzoides Architects to realize her design of the Armenian Genocide Memorial. Catherine has been a constant and integral part of the design negotiation, presentation, and collaboration with the City of Pasadena since the selection of her design.

Before the Armenian Genocide Memorial, she contributed to the organization of Art Center’s first TEDx, as well as designed the stage set for the conference. Catherine was also in a selected student team who collaborated with the Getty’s design team to create LA Constructs the Future: 1940-1990, currently exhibiting at The Getty Center in Los Angeles. She is currently seeking a professional certification in Heritage Conservation from USC School of Architecture, and continues to utilize this knowledge of Los Angeles’ history to further investigate our kinetic city in her artwork and design work.
