Welcome to our final “Meet the Editors” post for this semester! Surprisingly, JFR only got only a few new editors, which means there are not many to introduce through the “Meet the Editors” series. This week’s highlighted editor is Paulina, who is taking the role of Art and Design Editor and Layout Editor.
Paulina is a junior at Lewis University where she is majoring in Graphic Design and minoring in Marketing. She graduated from Moraine Valley Community College with an Associates in Art. Some inspirational graphic designers she follows are Mike Perry, Shepard Fairey, as well as Aaron Draplin. She loves action movies and drinking lots of coffee. If she’s not studying or working her two jobs, she likes to watch design or makeup tutorials in her free time.
Below is our Q&A with Paulina:
