Learn from designers with industry expertise.

I love that I get to learn about things I otherwise wouldn’t have through the projects I work on.

Katie Mihailovits

After completing the Shillington full time course in 2013 in London, Katie Mihailovits went on to enjoy design roles in a variety of organisations from a digital studio to a large communications agency. More recently, Katie has been focusing on her own clients particularly those in the not-for-profit sector working on a range of projects for organisations such as the Wellcome Trust, the Consortium for Street Children, Global Witness and the Jo Cox Foundation. She works across identity, digital and print.

What do you love about design?

I love the challenge of helping people and businesses communicate with their audience in the most effective way, whether that’s making a lot of numeric data more accessible in the form of infographics or by creating the right emotional impact through a campaign identity. I also love that I get to learn about things I otherwise wouldn’t have through the projects I work on.

Why do you teach?

I completed the full-time course at Shillington College in London and it was one of the best decisions I’ve made. I understand it’s an extremely exciting and challenging time for the students and I want to help them on that journey and ultimately land their dream job as a designer.

Tell us about your design career outside of Shillington.

I’ve worked in a variety of in-house and agency roles and right now I work part-time as Creative Lead at a communications agency and the rest of the time I work on a variety of projects for my own clients.

What or who are you loving right now?

Lotta Nieminen and Matthias Heiderich.

If you were a typeface, what would you be?

FF Meta—it’s clean and cheery. I try my best to be both.

What’s your favourite blog?

Visuelle and Muzli—not strictly a design blog but brilliant for pulling great content from a variety of sources.
