Nervy was founded in 2016 by Paulina McFarland who is a trained artist and illustrator turned graphic designer with 18+ years of professional experience in publishing, branding and environmental design. Since receiving her MFA in design at The Academy of Art University in San Francisco, she has worked with art collectives, brand agencies, interiors and architecture studios and Fortune 500 companies. 

 

The studio has taken on complex identity systems; brand experiences in a build environment, textile design, art publications and dimensional sculptural installations for workplace, healthcare, education and hospitality markets.

 

We have worked with recognizable brands such as Google, McDonald's, Disney, YouTube, Oracle, Sony, Samsung, Microsoft, Johns Hopkins University and UCSF to name a few.

 

Our team of dedicated designers spans continents and time zones. We stay nimble by staffing the right people for the right projects.
