New Hampshire Institute of Art (NHIA) is very excited to announce a new lecture featuring renowned illustrator Alyssa Nassner. This event is free and open to the public and will be held November 20, 11:30am-1pm at NHIA’s French Building, 148 Concord St, Manchester NH.

Alyssa Nassner is an illustrator and hand letterer from Baltimore, based out of New York, NY. By day she is a designer for ABRAMS Kids, and in her spare time she dabbles in repeat pattern making and food illustration. Her passion for surface design has led her to develop projects and products for a wide array of clients including Target, Hallmark, Studio Oh, Trader Joe’s and many more. Her trademark is her use of bright colors and hand rendered typography.

“An integral component to our programming and its success at NHIA has been to incorporate exceptional guest lectures for our students, and the community,” said Jim Burke, Chair of the Illustration Department at NHIA. “Nassner is a major talent, providing significant contributions within the field of illustration. By design, our visiting artists not only cover a broad range of genres within visual communication, but also represent distinct periods within an artist’s career. This is essential in today’s creative fields, which we emphasize with all of our students.”

Alyssa is also quite fond of dogs, donuts, her family, and traveling, which feature prominently in her work. Her biggest inspirations include vintage botanical prints, Scandinavian design and mid-century illustration. Alyssa is also co-owner and designer for Hooray Today paper goods.
