- Winner of Secret 7” show
- Art & Design
Katie studied Level 3 Foundation Diploma in Art and Design in 2012/13 and went on to study Illustration at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLAN).
She excelled on her course and in 2016 was chosen as a winner of a major worldwide design competition, the coveted Secret 7” show. The annual exhibition challenges creatives from around the world to design a one-of-a-kind vinyl cover and Katie’s design – a grapefruit-inspired cover for John Lennon’s Imagine – was chosen. Her cover was put on display alongside works by world-famous designers including Sir Paul Smith, Sir Anish Kapoor, Jenny Holzer and George Hardie.
Like many people when they approach the end of college she was unsure of what she wanted to do.
“I hadn’t really considered going to university but then somebody from UCLan came to give a talk at Hopwood Hall and I was really inspired so I decided to apply. I’m so glad I did and I’ve really enjoyed my experience at UCLan”
