design + illustration




I'm Allissa. I'm currently a sophomore in the School of Design at Carnegie Mellon University, where I'm focusing on Communication Design and minoring in Human-Computer Interaction. Besides my studies, drawing is (and has always been) my perpetual side project, and I'd also like to pursue illustration & comics in the future.

Different kinds of narrative & storytelling have always fascinated me. I'm interesting in seeing how they would play into the field of design, whether that means design that tells a story or design that considers the stories of the people who use it.

In the spare time that I don't spend drawing I might be reading obscure Wikipedia articles, trying to teach myself new skills from the internet, or looking at pictures of birds.

I'm currently looking for internship opportunites for Summer 2018! — resume — instagram
