Alyah is a designer, creator and extreme perfectionist from Boston and Ottawa who enjoys the challenges offered with every creative opportunity. Alyah attributes the success of her work to her strong concept ideation skills, and use of lateral thinking to explore all possibilities and create unique and effective solutions. Alyah specializes in branding, packaging, creative direction, communication design, and print. Aside from design she has skills in illustration, painting, writing, interior design, cosmetics, and a background in psychology. Alyah always knew she loved anything that involved thinking creative and making things that excited people. After a year and a half of Psychology Alyah decided she had to do something she loved, and turn her skill and passion into something bigger. She moved to Toronto as the first step in pursuing her dreams of becoming a Creative Director. One of her goals in the next few years is to move to a bigger city like New York or San Francisco, where she'd feel inspired and experience a new environment.
