Overland Park, KS, US



My name is Kate Phillips and I am an interior design student graduating from the Fay Jones School of Architecture in May of 2014. I believe in the collaboration between design disciplines like interior design, architecture, landscape architecture and graphic design. My passions include photography, film, culinary arts, travel, yoga, and of course, design. In 2013, I studied abroad in London and fell in love with this mecca of design. I also recently got the opportunity to travel to Uganda for a Global Sustainability Conference, where I got to see a project I helped design be built.
