Introducing Alyssa

Hi there! I'm Alyssa Varner, the newest Design Thinker at DBC. I'm thrilled to be on board. I'll be writing posts and case studies here on as well as assisting with branding design + illustration for DBC's clients. 

I earned my B.A. at the University of Iowa and moved to New York City in 2008. My apartment in Brooklyn is ruled by two small cats named Foggy and Nutmeg. In my spare time I write + draw comic books. When not at my desk I can be found bicycling, hiking, or making regrettable puns. 

As a Design Thinker, I'm interested in problem solving over aesthetics; I prefer clean, minimalist visual solutions. I am also looking forward to exploring the ways design can be used for social good.
