Caroline Tiger – SVA MA Design Research

Caroline Tiger is a Philadelphia-based freelance journalist, author, and blogger who has been writing professionally since 1999. She worked in book and magazine publishing after studying literature and art history at the University of Pennsylvania. Her journalism career began at a general interest magazine, where she followed her curiosity from story to story. Eventually she found herself writing story after story on design. Caroline’s book credits include a biography of Isamu Noguchi for young adults and City Walks: Philadelphia (Chronicle Books). At SVA, Caroline is excited to meet some like-minded folks, expand her professional opportunities, and take a break from writing to focus on her writing.
