The New Wave of Daily Organizers: The Modern Manila with Alyssa de Asis

Alyssa de Asis is a girl as whimsical as her illustrations. From her hair to her style, she’s infused her personality into every design she’s created. With her Modern Manila, she’s given a piece of herself to the Punchdrunk Panda family.

Growing up with a pencil and sketchpad in hand and a vision of a colorful world in her mind, Alyssa was guaranteed to be in the artistic field. Ever since she graduated with a degree in Fine Arts from St. Scholastica’s College-Manila, she’s never looked back. Her chosen specialization in Visual Design and Communications enabled her to start a career in advertising before fully jumping in to a career as a full-time freelance illustrator.

As a full-time illustrator, graphic artist, web designer, and photographer, she has her hands full with staying inspired all the time to keep making content. She does this by traveling, visiting art galleries, and looking up new inspirations on social media. Most of her works are inspired by nature (as seen in the foliage she includes in her art) but she also looks to the works of Hayao Miyazaki and other children’s book illustrators for that generative spark. She also stresses the importance of setting priorities and allot time for work. But on those days when creative block rears its ugly head, a cup of coffee and good music will perk her up.

Modern Manila sprouted from how she sees Manila as it is today. After some research, she listed down the great features of our city: a rich nightlife with talented musicians performing in different places, always having new restaurants and cafes to discover, carpooling, bazaars and so much more. The bright city life was translated into Alyssa’s colorful graphics for the Daily Organizer.

If you want to follow in Alyssa’s footsteps, she advises you to always keep learning new things, work hard, and have fun as you do so. Looking back on her previous works, she’s most proud of her recent illustrations that show the improvement in her style. With hard work and dedication, any aspiring artist will flourish because they love what they do.
