In issue 93 we also interviewed  Katie Jones where she told us about her design process and the inspiration behind this bright and bold design.

The main influences were the sixties, The Beatles: Yellow Submarine animation and artist Niki de Saint Phalle. I’ve channelled colour, patterns and the energy of Carnaby Street in its heyday!
