About The Episode:
Welcome to episode #006 of The Couragecast. In this episode I chat with my friend, the talented and uber creative Alyssa Yuhas, about how her desire for community and collaboration have been the catalyst to gather like minded creatives. She shares her heart and vision for the future of Designer Vaca, and what may be on the horizon.
For as long as Alyssa can remember, she's been collecting stacks of magazines. She followed that love to design school, where she was trained in visual design & communication. In nearly a decade since, she has worked for a boutique design firm, in-house and for an ad agency before starting her own business 7 years ago. She now works with clients from all over the world: from Sydney to London, from New York to Vancouver. In 2012, she moved across Canada to Toronto and pioneered the creative at C3, a vibrant church community. In 2012, Alyssa co-founded Designer VACA, an anti-conference (or vacation) for female graphic & web designers held in Palm Springs. Alyssa is a seven 'enthusiast' on the Enneagram (https://www.enneagraminstitute.com/type-7/), a mother of boys, a binge podcast listener, was named one of 10 Young Designers to Watch by DesignEdge and this one time Katy Perry used her popcorn carton design at her movie premiere.
