Okaykate is Kate Godfrey, a designer and writer who has as much fun working on small business identity programs as she does designing for national newsstand publications.
Kate’s publication design credits include award-winning layout and art direction for Parenting and PC World magazines. Her editorial credits include: fairy tale scripts for Boxer Press Audio; pithy font reviews for PCWorld.com; and tech-editing for book publishers such as PeachPit Press.
Kate has served as both a program advisor and instructor for the UC Extension/Berkeley Graphic Design Certificate Program and as a merchandising advisor for artists at San Francisco Center for the Book.
It's no secret that she is big on fair deals. Kate has lectured nationally on copyright issues within the design community; campaigned with the Graphic Artists Guild to change the nature of contracts for creative work; co-founded the Guild’s educational e-newsletter The Contract Monitor; and co-wrote the contract law chapter for the 10th Edition of the Graphic Artists Guild Handbook: Pricing and Ethical Guidelines.
Kate lives, writes, and designs in a tiny cottage on a windy hill in San Francisco with a lovely view of afternoon fog. At the end of the workday she sneaks out to knit by the light of the silver screen.
