Hello. I'm Alyssa Coombs, a graphic designer and illustrator based in Melbourne (Australia). When not drinking coffee or inspecting the weather app, I like to use my creative and technical skills to deliver effective pieces of visual communication.
I work with a wide range of clients on a wide range of design projects including (but not limited to) the following:
    •   logos / visual identities / branding
    •   business cards / stationery
    •   book design / book illustration / typesetting
    •   food packaging / product packaging
    •   annual reports / brochures / catalogues
    •   information design / graphs / diagrams
    •   posters / banners / promotional materials
    •   greeting cards / invitations
    •   slide presentations / interactive PDFs
    •   social media promotions / websites

I studied communication design at Swinburne Uni, finishing my degree with honours. I have always enjoyed creative pursuits; graphics and art were my favourite subjects at high school, and as a kid I loved to colour pictures from my large collection of colouring books. These days most of my projects are created digitally, but occasionally I'll pick up a pencil or a creative tool other than my computer mouse.
