I'm LYSSA GAGNE
and I'm a Graphic Designer.

Let me introduce myself

I'm a graphic designer living in Waterloo, Ontario. In the last couple of years, I have worked with small retail businesses and in the hospital and healthcare sector by providing brand solutions, visual marketing content, and creative strategies. My design skills revolve around design strategy, branding, marketing communications, print, interaction design, and UX/UI.

My education and experience

I have a Bachelor of Arts in English from Laurentian University (Grad. 2010), Graphic Design Production Diploma from Georgian College (Grad. 2014), and a Bachelor of Design from Conestoga College (Grad. 2019). During my education my focus has been in English Literature, Science, Sociology, Graphic Design with Print Production, Marketing, Entrepreneurship, and Business.

 

Professionally, I have worked with Student Success Services at Conestoga College (2017-2018), Calendar Club Canada (2018-2020), DMS Future Proof program at Communitech (2020), and Maple (2020-Current).

A little more about me

Since youth, I have always been interested in the arts whether through music, graphic design, or visual arts. To-date, I can play the violin and viola very well and in 2021 I decided to learn how to play the clarinet, a woodwind instrument, on my own.
