Hi, I’m Alissa, an Italian illustrator and animator based in Banksy’s hometown Bristol, UK.
Drawing on a background in the branding and advertising industry, I illustrate vibrant, heartfelt and thought provoking scenes across editorial, publishing, brand and motion.
Always beaming with colour and textures reminiscing of paint rollers and pencils, I love using my illustrations to create captivating and educative imagery on nature, travel, mental health and food. Having worked extensively with NGOs and purposeful enterprises I’ve also had the honour of lending my creative voice to important issues like sustainability, activism, social justice, women’s health and rights, R&I and international development.
Recent project highlights:
Seeing a bus covered in my illustrations in driving heroes of British race relations to the Houses of Parliament //Illustrating a dreamy food campaign for Bonne Maman & The Guardian Labs // Working on global campaign for World MS Day // Developing the branding and packaging for sustainable woman owned coffee Jenipher’S Coffi

As a self-taught animator I’ve worked on a rage of explainer videos, brand animations and motion graphics for social media. I love using movement to bring the tiny details of illustrations and storyboards to life.
Depending on the complexity of the project, I might use Procreate, Photoshop, After Effects or Premiere to bring these stories to life.
You can find examples of my work here.
As a designer I’ve worked with studios all over Europe, across a broad range of disciplines – from branding to editorial and webdesign, as well as developing illustration styles based on a brand’s conceptual and visual foundations.
While focusing mostly on illustration these days, I occasionally still work on small freelance brand projects.
