ANTOINETTE WESTPHAL COLLEGE OF MEDIA ARTS & DESIGN | DREXEL UNIVERSITY

Kaci is a Graphic Design senior at Drexel University. Hailing from central Pennsylvania, she came to the city for school – she also wanted to experience urban life and the design scene. She loves the power of design and how even the smallest details can affect how a person interacts with the world. Her passions lie in branding, typography, and UX/UI. Her co-op at Zivtech and classes in human-computer interaction and web design have also introduced her to the realm of user experience, and showed her how well-designed interfaces can make people’s lives easy and their experiences intuitive. Kaci loves learning something new each day. And in the rare moments where she is offline, Kaci enjoys trying new restaurants, exploring the city, and reading a good book (after first thoroughly judging its cover.)
