Alyssa Ackerman is a designer and strategist with a focus on User Experience research and insights. She lives in Portland but works internationally and focuses on website design, marketing, user experience strategy, content strategy, content creation, and graphic design. She has spent years both at agencies and startups and has lead marketing teams and user experience product teams. Her experience is heavily weighted with B2B sass.


I'm Alyssa, a designer-turned-strategist with a passion for helping people better empathize and connect with their clients (and future clients). My work has taken many forms, but the core has always been user experience. All of my creative, marketing, and product work is rooted in consumer research and insights. I love designing, executing, and synthesizing consumer research to help clients develop creative campaigns, improve product flow, create content that converts, develop personas and journeys, to promote optimization


I've been working in Experience Strategy and Marketing since 2011 and have experience with both B2B and B2C brands. In this time. I’ve spent years developing content and content strategies. I’ve also been teaching User Experience and Digital Marketing with General Assembly since 2015.
