I'm LYSSA GAGNE and I'm a UX/UI & Graphic Designer
Born and raised in the Mississauga-Etobicoke area, I attended Etobicoke School of the Arts for classical music playing the viola. Having an interest in the visual arts, especially in advertising and marketing, I decided to pursue a diploma in Graphic Design at Georgian College in Barrie (grad. 2014).
In 2015, I moved to the Kitchener-Waterloo area with my partner Cameron and our dog Ollie. Wanting to pursue a higher level of education, I enrolled in the Bachelor of Design program at Conestoga College graduating with honours and distinction in August 2019.
In the last couple of years, I have developed an interest in sustainability, usability, food security, and supporting local businesses. Part of this growing interest merged and became the foundation for my 4th year thesis - Circle Community Food Coop.
Majority of my experience has been in the advertising and marketing field focusing on student life and retail. I have worked with Student Success Services at Conestoga College (2017-2018) and Calendar Club Canada (2018-2020).
