ACADEMY OF ART UNIVERSITY MFA IN GRAPHIC DESIGN
Katie Tonkovich grew up in Seattle where she spent most of her childhood running around in the great outdoors. She attended Pitzer College in Los Angeles where she majored in Fine Arts and International Intercultural Studies, then journeyed to San Francisco to study graphic design with an emphasis in sustainability at the Academy of Art University. Her thesis, Blaze, is an app which lets people help fundraise for the California State Parks by completing sponsored hikes. When she is not sketching or designing, she continues to run around in the great outdoors.
