D&AD New Blood Shift: Meet Alysa

Introducing the Shift New York Class of 2020

I grew up in a small town in Massachusetts with one goal: leave. At 18, my dream became a reality when I was offered a scholarship to the NY Conservatory of Dramatic Arts.

Once I graduated a new level of hustle began. I auditioned. Booked roles. Had 2 jobs. Three jobs. Too many jobs in the wrong field. After awhile, I was craving more creative fulfillment in my life and decided to make a change. I went back to college at 25.

Luckily, I had a professor convince me to change my major to graphic design. I realized my passion for storytelling in films applied to so many other creative outlets. Design. Painting. Illustration. Motion design. My mind was blown by the possibilities.

Two years later, I was working as an executive assistant at NBCUniversal. I again tapped into my hustle mentality and worked my way to daytime graphic artist, to primetime lead, to my goal of being a lead designer and animator on the Today Show.

What I want now is to move towards more conceptual work and break into the advertising industry. So I’m currently learning from the best in the business in D&AD's Shift Program.

Our Shifters have been honing their craft, pushing and polishing their work and now they are ready to take their talent further. Explore more:​
