DREXEL UNIVERSITY, ANTOINETTE WESTPHAL COLLEGE OF MEDIA ARTS & DESIGN

Jermaine Boca is completing her senior year at Drexel University and pursuing her BS in graphic design with an architecture minor. Inspired by her diverse taste in music and her native Philadelphia region, she channels her creativity into both print and web layout. As a process-driven designer, Jermaine believes in the importance of the iterative hand-sketching process as a precursor to her designs to the screen. During her 6-month co-op at AWeber, an email-marketing company, she worked on their inhouse design team doing visual branding for both print and web, along with front-end coding e-mail templates. If you’re ever at a Philly food truck festival, look out for Jermaine, likely you will find her simultaneously eating tacos and petting someone else’s adorable dog.
