Journalist & Author
Katie Treggiden is a purpose-driven writer championing a circular approach to design – because Planet Earth needs better stories. With 20 years’ experience in the creative industries, she regularly contributes to publications such as The Guardian, Viewpoint Magazine, Crafts Magazine and Design Milk.
She is currently exploring the question ‘can craft save the world?’ through an emerging body of work that includes her fifth book, Wasted: When Trash Becomes Treasure (Ludion, 2020). She has launched, edited and published an award-winning design blog (confessions of a design geek) and an independent print magazine (Fiera). She recently gained a distinction for her Master’s Degree in the History of Design from the University of Oxford.
Work with Katie and tap into a decade of immersion in craft, design and sustainability. She travels to the world’s design fairs, questions everything and is relentless in her pursuit of understanding. Combine your brief with all that insight and something magic happens. You can rely on Katie to deliver with creativity, clarity and captivation – as Caroline Davidson puts it, “Writing as functional and elegant as an Ercol chair”.
Fiera was an independent magazine discovering new talent at the world’s design fairs published across four issues 2014 – 2016.
Exploring themes, trends and movements through the lenses of editorial writing, creative writing, illustration and photography, Fiera shed new light on the ideas shaping the future of the industry and the wider world. It was Shortlisted for Best Launch in the inaugural Stack Awards and Nominated for Best New Magazine in the Magpile Magazine Awards 2014.
