With her powerhouse team of designers, proofreaders, and associate editor, Katie creates each issue around a central theme or design concept. Articles are submitted by design professionals, adhering to rigorous guidelines and written for categories including “Travel Inspiration,” “Design 101,” and “Case Studies,” and often include a Question & Answer column as well as an inspiring book excerpt.
