DREXEL UNIVERSITY WESTPHAL COLLEGE OF MEDIA ARTS & DESIGN
Hanna is a senior studying Graphic Design with minors in Fine Art and Business. After moving to Philadelphia, Hanna quickly realized her passion for design and transferred into the Westphal College — one of the best decisions of her life. Originally from Silicon Valley, Hanna grew up in a diverse and multicultural environment, which is a constant source of perspective and inspiration. She believes in concept-driven work, and enjoys pushing the limits of structure and materials. Her co-op at EY Intuitive taught her the importance of user-focused design, as well as working efficiently in a fast-paced studio environment. She is passionate about producing work that positively impacts people’s lives. Hanna is known for impromptu dance parties and 3:00 am ice cream runs. When she isn’t designing, you can find her attempting to recreate her mom’s cooking (unsuccessfully) or figuring out how to make her room look clean (without actually putting anything away).
