What I do

Paulina is Graphic and Communications Designer for the Global Innovation Policy Accelerator, a 14 country collaborative development programme for senior innovation policymakers. She oversees the full spectrum of design activities for the Accelerator, including programme design, developing design-for-policy materials, and the look and feel of the Programme. She also supports design work for Nesta's Reseach, Analysis and Policy division more broadly.


Prior to Nesta Paulina worked as a freelance graphic designer in the UK. She is originally from Mexico City where she started design-led social enterprise 'Pirueta' which focused on enabling collaborations with Mexican artisans for co-designing new products with traditional handcrafted techniques.

Paulina holds an MA in Social Entrepreneurship from Goldsmiths, University of London, and a BA in Industrial Design from Universidad Iberoamericana, Mexico.
