Hey there! My name is Nina Romans. I am a multidisciplinary designer, based in sunny Los Angeles. I am specializing in graphic design, illustration, brand design and web design.
I was born and raised in the Bay Area. I started my first oil painting lessons at the age of six with a French artist named Bernard Beneito in his studio above a dry cleaner. This began my interest in fine art. It wasn't until college that I started to get into design on the computer with Adobe Creative Cloud. I attended the University of California, Los Angeles where I majored in Design | Media Arts. Go Bruins! I also studied abroad in London at Central Saint Martin - University of Arts London where I was first introduced to web design.
I think much of my strength as a designer has come from jumping into the workforce at such a young age. It is so valuable to apply what you are learning to real world projects and learn from the obstacles you face and mistakes you make along the way. During college, I worked at two different brand & marketing agencies in Los Angeles. I worked at our school newspaper, The Daily Bruin, designing ads for the ad team. And I worked with a number of start-ups apps and companies in their first years to help them grow through the college market. I have been working as a freelance designer for 3 years now and have had the pleasure of collaborating and working with a variety of clients across many industries.
