When Katie Jones graduated from the Manchester School of Art with a degree in graphic design, she didn't expect to end up as an associate lecturer.
But that's exactly what she did, earning the school's first-ever Teaching Award for "Outstanding Feedback."
Jones, who also studied her own art foundation, says she wanted to create a magazine that would highlight diverse creatives, so she created Fresh, a side project that has since "opened many doors, built skills and confidence, and introduced Katie to the wider creative industry," per Elle.
Since then, she's become part of SLAN Collective, a global network of artists and designers who all support one another.
She's also become one of the people behind Ladies, Wine & Design in Manchester, a networking group for women.
Jones also runs a vegan food truck with her family, and she's a member of Ladies, Wine & Design, a Manchester-based networking group for women.
She's also won awards for her work, including being named one of Elle's "25 Most Intriguing Women in the World" and one of Elle's "Most Intriguing Graphic Designers" and "Most Intriguing Digital Innovator."
