About Me

My name is Diane Serpa, but friends call me Dot. I’m a digital graphic designer with more than 20 years of experience. Through GreyCatDot Digital Design, I partner with local businesses to create effective marketing design in support of their goals.

If you go with an agency, you’re just another customer. With me, you get equal quality, expertise, talent, skill AND personal attention.

I’m big on collaboration, working with my clients. So whether you’re established, or have only a few years under your belt, AND you’re ready to take your marketing and branding to the next level, let’s talk.

The Fun Stuff (a.k.a. my background)

Originally from Niagara Falls, N.Y. and I have an identical twin. I moved to Scottsdale in 1976, then Mesa in 1978 so I have been in Arizona for a long time.

Love reading comic books and sci-fi/fantasy novels. I collect nerdy toys and yes, we have a special room for them.

I enjoy meeting new people, in person and on social media. No, really. I love meeting new people that I connect with.

I’m always excited to try interesting food and I love other cultures. The list of foods that I don’t like is a much shorter list than what I do like.

I adore animals. I did have an elderly grey cat, like my company name implies. We lost Zelda in 2017 but that’s her in the logo. We have two 18 year old sister kitties, too. I also Trap-Neuter-Return for feral and stray cats in my neighborhood.

Sustainable gardening is important to me and I grow my own vegetables but the untouched wilderness has a special place in my heart.

I’ll take dancing to new wave music over exercising, any day, though I do ride my lime green Electra Cruiser around Gilbert’s Riparian Preserve a bit. Look for the watermelon helmet.

That about sums me up. Nice to meet you!
