Young Designer of the Year

Each year the editors of Net Magazine, the public, and a panel of judges across the industry get together to recognize the best designers, developers, projects, ideas, and technologies. We’re excited to congratulate designer Katie Kovalcin on her Net Awards win for Young Designer of the Year. Although Katie couldn’t be in London to accept the award at the event, we celebrated in Austin with our friends in the community.

Katie is passionate about helping women learn to code and is involved with Skillcrush and Girl Develop It where she teaches classes like Intro to Typography and Intro to Responsive Web Design. She also writes for Cognition and on her personal blog.

If you live in Austin, come see Katie and Stephen Caver speak at Refresh Austin on June 10th. They’ll be presenting “Let's bury the hatchet: How developers and designers can work better together.”
