Lynne Rennie

Lynne Rennie uses her sweet designs for chocolatey creations

As design director of Cococo, Rennie gets to merge her design skills and love for chocolate into one sweet package.


“I get to work with chocolate — it’s just the best and it’s so much fun. If I didn’t have this design education [at NSCAD] I wouldn’t be as good at my role.”

Our graduates are known both locally and internationally for their boundless ingenuity and intense curiosity. Alumni go on to have incredible careers—within and beyond the art world—as artists, entrepreneurs, teachers, administrators, academics, and creative professionals. Their paths may be different but there is one thing they all share, their lives were shaped by their time at NSCAD.
