I’m Alisha. Designer, Illustrator & Creatress
I CREATE INTENTIONAL, BEAUTIFUL DESIGN FOR SOULFUL BRANDS
I breathe life into the creative visions of women who are changing the world.
I believe in utilising my skills and passions to empower others and create positive change. If you feel the same, you’re in the right place. In today’s visually saturated culture, great design is key to standing out. Tailored visuals will attract and connect you with your dream tribe, communicate your purpose and capture the essence of what you stand for.
I believe in connection. Connection is what life’s all about! Why work with someone who doesn’t really understand your purpose? Connection and communication are fundamental to building a great collaboration. I want to hear all about your dreams, and then help you turn them into reality. If I’m working on your project, I’m just as invested (and excited) as you are! I love my job because it allows me to connect with amazing like-minded women from across the globe.
I’m a dreamer, a wanderer, and a magpie for all things colourful and beautiful. I’m happiest when travelling. Being somewhere new means my inspiration reserves get topped up on a daily basis. I chose a creative career largely because it allows me to roam free, and I love that I can work from anywhere (a hilltop in the Himalayas or a graffiti-laden café in Berlin… the options are endless!) I’m a wandering gypsy currently from Auckland, New Zealand. Home for now is Burleigh Heads on the Gold Coast in Australia. I’m so grateful to be here!
How I ended up here…
As a kid I was obsessed with magazines, and spent hours cutting and pasting collages onto the front of my school books. When I found out that someone actually got paid to create all the pretty graphics I saw in my magazines, it seemed too good to be true.
It took me all of high school and many other almost-careers to realise that after all of that, it was design that lit me up. Part of that was knowing that being a designer would allow me to travel the world while I worked!
A compulsory illustration paper at university changed the trajectory of my life when I completely fell in love with the craft. After graduation, a brief stint working as an in-house designer confirmed what I already knew: I wanted to work for myself!
I went traveling for eight months – Japan, India, all around Europe – and along the way started to plant the seeds for my own creative business. I wanted to find a way to combine my love for design with my deep passion for health, wellbeing and having positive impact.
Over the last couple of years, Love Indigo has evolved into something I never could have imagined! It’s a beautiful combination of design and illustration work, creativity workshops and the occasional retreat.
Now I get to design, draw and create for women who are doing amazing things in the name of empowering others, and making the world a better place.
THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT ME
+ Yoga is a huge part of my life. You’ll find me on my mat almost every day, and I started teaching in 2016. My workshops combine yoga, meditation and drawing to help women nurture their creative energy.
+ I don’t take on projects that aren’t aligned with my ethics. I choose products that are cruelty-free, vegan, ethically made and kind to the environment. I work with businesses that are committed to making a difference and walking lightly on the earth.
+ I work with women from all over the world. Travel is in my blood and I love connecting with people from other countries and cultures. I’ve travelled to 19 countries, Couch-Surfing most of the way, and had the most incredible experiences of my life. My man and I recently moved to the Gold Coast from New Zealand, but we’ve also fallen in love with Berlin and want to live there one day!
