About Alissa

Hello! My name is Alissa Yusoo Lee and I am currently working as a UX Designer at IBM in Austin, Texas. Two years ago I graduated with a BFA in Industrial Design at the Rhode Island School of Design. I was born in Seoul, South Korea and but have been raised in the United States my entire life. I was introduced to the field of Industrial Design when I applied to RISD. I gradually fell in love with the idea of being able to learn more about the needs of others and take a part in enhancing users' experiences with everyday problems and opportunities.

During my spare time I enjoy traveling (so far I have visited South Korea, Iceland, Germany, Greece, and the Netherlands), watching films & tv shows, and spending time with friends and family.

I am always working towards improving myself as a designer, as well as a human being, so that I can create work that is both functional and beautiful, and can be appreciated by my users.
