Who is Alissa? In her own words from her website:
You can find my writing at GOOD, Fast Company, Dwell, Sunset, Print, The Architect’sNewspaper, LAWeekly, Metropolis, Wired, DesignObserver, Core77,
Coudal, ReadyMade, Eye, HOW, and even at two magazines that don’t exist anymore, I.D. and STEP Inside Design. I’m a contributing writer for Fast Company’s new design site, Co.Design, and a contributing editor at GOOD, where I write the column Design Is a Verb. I’ve also written for the Los Angeles Times, but it wasn’t about design, it was about Star Wars. From time to time, I’ve been tapped to pinch-hit for the restaurant and nightlife blog Eater LA. And in 2008 I spent two incredible months pounding the pavement in New York while researching and writing the first of a new series of walking guides, City Walks Architecture: New York, which was published by the fine people at Chronicle Books in 2009.
This Show & Tell will be happening at ADX on March 14th starting at 6:30pm. This event is also happening along with GOOD Ideas for Portland Student Presentations by Nicole Lavelle’s Design Thinking class.
In 2010, she was named as one of seven USC Annenberg/Getty Arts Journalism Fellows for her writing on design and urbanism.
