Yesenia Martinez-Yanez Marketing Specialist

Yesenia Martinez-Yanez is a graphic designer, artist, and marketing communicator from Timberlake, North Carolina. Attracted by the visual arts from an early age with drawing and painting, Yesenia set foot on the creative career path when she studied at Appalachian State University to receive her BFA in Graphic Design. She’s designed several books exploring experimental typography, imagery, and writing. Her journey to Duke began with joining the Marketing and Engagement team at the Nasher Museum of Art. To further deepen the connection between art and the public at the Nasher, she relaunched and rebranded a video series, The Art Minute, that features recollections of sentimental narratives from museum staff inspired by artworks on view. Yesenia continues to build the bridge between art and community through web and social media channels at Duke Arts. Yesenia joined the Duke Arts team in August 2022.
