Nyomi Warren

Nyomi Warren, a graphic design senior, hails from the Boston area. She is a recipient of the Golumbic Award for Design Achievement, two awards from Graphis (Silver in Film & Motion New Talent Annual 2018 and Platinum in Poster Design New Talent Annual 2016, in addition to being an MVP Visuals Design Winner), AIGA Blue Ridge Flux Design Winner, and Black Congressional Caucus Foundation Visual Arts Scholar. Last summer Nyomi interned with Chandelier Creative in New York City. Despite working 30-hour weeks at CVS in downtown State College, Warren also competes with Penn State’s Figure Skating Team, interns with "Got a Girl Crush" (a feminist publication), and tackles freelance work in addition to her course work. She recently completed her thesis, “Rebranding Sexuality: The Redesign of Condom Packaging and Consumption,” and will graduate with honors. As a feminist, vegan, and lover of “groutfits,” she will pursue a career track where she can help women and minorities continue to rise. Her work can be viewed at nyomiwarren.com. Her advice to her “before” self would be to “be yourself and don’t worry about what other people are doing or thinking.”
