About Alyssa Mitchell

Hello! I’m Alyssa Mitchell, or am for short, and I’m into graphic design and media arts. Generating bright ideas. Some things you should know about me is that I love to paint and take photographs. I still read tactile books. I like the feel of the paper between my fingers. My favorite forms of exercise include swimming, scuba diving, kick boxing, and running near my apartment in Five Points. No run could be complete without a playlist, especially considering I was a deejay for four years. Before I made the switch to graphic design I was editor of the Kaleidoscope in 2009. I am committed to keeping environmental practices. I have a passion for travel: to explore new places and to discover life in different cultures. More recently you can find my infographic poster in the 2011 Adobe Design Achievement Awards semifinalist gallery, and it took second at both the 2012 Birmingham AIGA Emerging Designers Showcase and the 2010 Birmingham AIGA Salon Des Refuses Show. My packaging project entitled Split Milk brought me my first Gold ADDY, a place in Core77's Design Awards, and is featured on the French Paper Co.’s Run of the Mill blog. My first time out at the ADDYs I took home a shiny silver trophy in alternative advertising.
