DREXEL UNIVERSITY ANTOINETTE WESTPHAL COLLEGE OF MEDIA ARTS & DESIGN BACHELOR OF SCIENCE MAJOR IN GRAPHIC DESIGN

Karen Yee is a senior Graphic Design major and Fine Arts minor. Originally from Connecticut, Karen is a mathematical person in an art-influenced field. She loves to think logically and creatively to solve complex design puzzles. Bright colors and photography are a huge theme in Karen’s work, and she needs music while designing. During her six month co-op at SEDSO Design in Philadelphia, she worked on brand systems and learned to effectively extend one concept across several mediums. On campus, Karen is a designer for the student run design firm Graphics Group and a member of the Ski/Snowboard Club. When she is not designing you will definitely find her outside or doing something active like rock climbing or biking through the city.
