My name is Alyssa and I am a geek. There, now that it’s out in the open it shouldn’t come as any surprise to you.
I am an Ohio-native living in Los Angeles. I have a degree in Advertising & Graphic Design from Columbus College of Art & Design (CCAD) with a minor in copywriting and an emphasis in illustration.
Currently, I am an Associate Design Team Lead at Activision. I manage an amazing team of graphic designers to create the marketing assets for some of Activision’s best games including, Spyro, Crash Bandicoot, Crash Team Racing, Sekiro, Call of Duty Online, and various Mobile games. We also handle all of Activision and Activision Blizzard’s internal design needs from posters and email templates to branding for major campaigns such as Fortune’s 100 Best Places to Work.
Previously, as a member of the Edelman L.A. Creative team, I spent my time designing dynamic new business presentations for a variety of potential clients and creative assets for clients such as Starz, Shell, Samsung, and Microsoft. My freelance work primarily focused on designing concept art books for Design Studio Press and the occasional logos/collateral for various other clients.
In my spare time, I love to illustrate and create fan social posts for my favorite TV shows. I’ve been increasing my typography skills through classes at TypeEd in downtown L.A. and attending as many graphic design/illustration classes and events that I can find.
When I’m not working I am usually hiding my dog Gracie’s favorite pink pig toy, playing obscene amounts of Destiny (Sentinel Titan) and Overwatch (Mercy!Main), or marathoning superhero television shows. I spend a lot of my time with my Little Sister as a member of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Los Angeles and playing softball in a local league. My dreams for the distant future are to own a holodeck, be the voice of a Disney princess and possibly become bionic.
