A must for all designers

The topics Alyssa covers are great for any designer and is very informative. A great place to learn and hear another perspective. Thank you, Alyssa!

So inspiring and hugely Helpful

There are very few young female designers who are relatively new to the industry and killing it, Alyssa is doing just that. Alyssa is highly helpful and is willing to share all of her knowledge and experience which sometimes isn’t spoken about within the industry. Listening to the podcast like having a work buddy who understands and provides actionable advice. I love the podcast and can’t wait for the other episodes.
