DREXEL UNIVERSITY WESTPHAL COLLEGE
Pauline Nyren is a senior in the graphic design program at Drexel University. After switching from a fashion merchandising major due to craving more creative hands-on work, she has definitely found the field she was meant to be in. Pauline enjoys the relationship between fine art and design and the ability to communicate with people through visual language. While some may describe it as insane, her intense attention to detail is what drives her. During her six month co-op at Hasbro working as a brand designer for Nerf, she learned the power of working in a fun and fast-paced work environment. She is known for snorting when she laughs and being the first to suggest getting food.
