Welcome to my website!

 

I am Alyssa Lloyd, a 3D/2D multimedia artist. As a Pittsburgh, PA native, I have been immersed in the arts from a young age. Since beginning music lessons at age 6 and then later pursuing multimedia arts, visual effects, and music performance in college and beyond, I have always been incredibly passionate about what I do.

Since 2019, I have worked professionally in roles such as Digital Content Designer, 3D Generalist, Graphic Designer, and as a freelancer and have worked on a variety of 3D and 2D design and media projects.

Currently,  I am a Contract Graphic Designer with the marketing agency AEK Solutions and also with Chromalox. In both of those roles, I create exciting 2D and 3D graphics, logo and branding materials, motion graphics, infographics, video edits, and much more. The assets I create are used on in ad campagins, social media platforms, physical conference signage, blogs, and more. With AEK, I was the lead designer for several large scale projects, such as Cosmetic Bootcamp’s branding overhaul in 2021.

 

From 2020-2021, I was the full-time Digital Content Designer for the Community College of Allegheny County, located in Pittsburgh, PA. I was responsible for creating eye-catching 2D and 3D animations for distribution across CCAC’s digital signage video walls, interactive kiosks, and displays at 8 campus locations, as well as online platforms. I helped lead the creation of multiple large scale projects, including the Spring 2020 and 2021 Virtual Commencement ceremonies, Nursing Pinning ceremonies, and an animated video series for CCAC’s Youtube channel.

From 2019-2022, I worked with the tech startup company REDD Technology as a 3D Generalist. At REDD, I worked with our team to create 3D animations, motion graphics, 2D animations and more for use in online educational modules. In early 2020, I redesigned REDD's website in collaboration with another artist on the team.

As for my education, I earned a Bachelor of Science in Visual Effects Production from the Digital Animation & Visual Effects School in Orlando, FL. My concentrations include photorealistic 3D modeling and texturing for asset and environment creation, but I was also trained in compositing, animation, lighting, and rendering.

 

I am also a graduate of Duquesne University, in Pittsburgh, PA, where I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Digital Media Arts with a concentration in Multimedia, in addition to a minor in Trumpet Performance. I graduated with the honor of summa cum laude in three years. In addition to my media studies, I took three years of full-time music/trumpet performance courses and studied privately with members of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra.

In 2021, I became a NextGen member on the Themed Entertainment Association (TEA) Marketing & Communications and Events Committees. I am responsible for taking meeting minutes, creating graphics for events, and for providing any relevant insight. I am also a member of the TEA Hubs initiative, where our goal is to create local networks of TEA members in select cities and to strengthen the TEA's presence across the country. I am spearheading the Pittsburgh TEA Hub alongside other members.

 

Currently, I am seeking any opportunities for professional design work in the themed entertainment industry or parallel industries. I invite you to take a look through my portfolio and to please feel free to reach out via email (alyssalloyd@live.com) or by filling out the contact form on this site.
