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.
Graphic Design Teacher
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.
