Alyssa Nassner is an illustrator and hand letterer from Baltimore, based out of Brooklyn, NY. She earned her BFA in illustration from the Maryland Institute College of Art. By day she is the Lead Visual Designer for Curbed.com (previously ABRAMS Kids, Callisto Media, and Target), and in her spare time she dabbles in hand lettering and food illustration. Her passion for surface design has lead her to develop projects and products for a wide array of clients, and she is recognized for her use of bright colors, patterns and hand rendered typography.
