JenaLyn Inong Newman | Graphic / Visual Designer & Creative Producer

San Diego, CA, USA
San Diego-raised, JenaLyn Newman is a graduate from the University of California based in the same city, with a Bachelors Degree in Visual Arts (Media). While designing professionally for over nine years with a variety of established institutions and companies as well as up-and-coming enterprises, her affinity for art and design has been a lifelong journey, still very much in progress.

On a personal note, JenaLyn is on Photoshop and Illustrator way too much, and she shares the same height as most sophomores in high school, though she turned twenty-nine in February. If you happen to be a big fan of food, Harry Potter, good tunes, and artsy-fartsy stuff, then you'll probably be wrangled into becoming her new best friend. JenaLyn also cultivates a (potentially) unhealthy obsession with paper toys. Her laughs are loud and awkward, and when she does sleep, she proudly hibernates like a bear.
