Alisa Damaso

Hi, I'm Alisa! I'm a creative designer with 6+ years of experience in branding, media campaign development, digital, and print across the hospitality, travel, lifestyle, and finance industries. I've worked in-house, at an agency, and as an independent.


Coming from a traditional arts, writing, entertainment, and communications background, I draw from my unique experiences to deliver nuanced, informed design supported by careful research, logic, and messaging.


My design process is curious, creative, and collaborative. I love working with brands and individuals who share my values in spreading joy, cultivating community, and fighting for social justice.


In my free time, I manage my small business VLY GRL and sing in the band Vincent Gargiulo National Park. When I'm not making things, I'm running at Golden Gate Park while listening to books and spooky podcasts, hiking trails around the Bay Area, or watching funny pet videos on YouTube while munching on Hot Cheetos.
