Alissa owes it all to Neopets.
A child of the web, they grew up tinkering with HTML and GIMP for their virtual pets’ pages way before learning about web design as a career path. Later on in their early teens they sold their soul to Adobe after falling in love with the storytelling and problem-solving opportunities that come with working as a designer. They graduated summa cum laude from Moore College of Art & Design with a BFA in Graphic Design, but not before they had the pleasure of spending a year as P’unk Ave’s first design intern.
As a junior designer, Alissa assists P’unk Ave’s design and support teams across a variety of projects in various states of completion. Their role gives them ample opportunities to appease their ever-growing hunger to solve challenging problems and tell people’s stories through good design.
Outside of the studio, Alissa enjoys trying new plant-based recipes, reading about anything from Martians to art heists, and block printing.
