The key to teaching graphic design is making it both practical and interesting. Kathryn's varied background working for larger advertising agencies, small boutique firms, in-house marketing and graphics as well as having her own freelance business has allowed for a wide range of experiences and opportunities which guides Kathryn's lectures and project assignments. A syllabus sets up the general goals and structure of a class, but the details along the way can be adjusted in order to greater benefit a particular group of students. Students view assignments as doing what their teachers want. Kathryn encourages questions and pushing the boundary of assignments. She wants students to feel they are in control of their own design decisions; that she is not in control, but rather a guide and sounding board. Kathryn feels that coming up with original projects lets students explore new areas of graphic design they may not have considered before. She thinks a teacher's ability and desire to inspire a student is important in all levels of education. Kathryn promotes a relaxed classroom atmosphere that allows for the possibility of humor, that does not intimidate, but encourages questioning and facilitates dialogue; this is central to her teaching philosophy.
