I'm a graphic designer, letterer, & illustrator 
living in the midwest

My name is Alyssa Barwick, a graphic designer living in Columbia, MO where I work full time as the coordinator of the Student Design Center at the University of Missouri and also at my freelance business, Alyssa Barwick Design.

I graduated from Mizzou with my bachelors of fine arts with an emphasis in graphic design, and have always loved being a creative. I try and have my work reflect my time I spent in my art classes with attention to detail, pleasing colors, and creating clever visual solutions to bring a new experience to words and images.

I have over five years of design experience working professionally and love every minute of what I do. That's the point right! ​​​​​​
Experience in editorial design, layout and publication design with a strong sense of typography and great attention to detail. Works well independently as well as in a collaborative team atmosphere. Very organized and able to manage workload and take direction in a fast paced environment.

Highly skilled in InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop. Proficient in Adobe Creative Suite. Microsoft Office, HTML, WordPress and Adobe Muse.


Pencil, paint, ink, watercolor, and vector illustrations and hand lettering. Training in modern and classic calligraphy. Interest and experience with B&W, color, and digital photography with basic photo editing and retouching knowledge.
