Dana Pavlichko: Designer | Happy Cog

Dana designs, illustrates, writes, learns, bikes, travels, runs, and listens​

Dana Pavlichko


Dana is a designer and illustrator from Philadelphia. She’s designed for a wide variety of industries including higher education, children’s television networks, and global manufacturers. Design gives her the opportunity to continually learn—by picking up a new skill or immersing herself in a client’s industry. Dana is most excited about solving complex problems with orderly, flexible design systems.

A passion for the web and a lifelong interest in art inspired Dana to earn her BFA in Graphic and Interactive Design from Temple University’s Tyler School of Art. When she’s not designing, Dana is gardening, running, or making glittery costumes.
