Paulina McFarland | Founder | Designer | Creative Director
After earning a BFA in painting and MFA in design, I went on to build internal brand campaigns for corporate clients; worked as a creative director for an art collective; published an art magazine; served as a brand consultant for Bay Area non-profits; worked at several design and strategy agencies and expanded into textile design.
Nervy is a small and mighty creative studio that I founded in 2014 in Oakland, California where I frequently collaborate with designers and companies to deliver branding and environmental experiences for businesses of all sizes.
I also currently work at Studio O+A in San Francisco as a Senior Brand Designer with clients like McDonald's, Liveramp, YouTube and Netflix.
