My name is Alyssa, and I like nice things is simply a place where I share my favorite things.

I’m a graphic designer living in Canada, and I work with individuals and businesses from all over North America. After a number of years working in an award-winning boutique studio and then a large advertising agency, I’ve leaped out on my own and I’m loving the creative freedom that has given me. When I’m not designing magazines, logos and blogs, I find the things I like & love, and share them with YOU in this online version of show & tell. A few years ago, I started WLWL magazine, which was a print & online spin-off of my blog – 10 issues later, with a growing global readership, we are continuing to share stories from creatives living all over the world.

In what little spare time I have, you can find me inspiring my boy (my photographer husband), discovering favorite places to eat in my city, shopping for bold jewelry and bright pattern at my favourite shops, or listening to live music at a pub or an outdoor show. Whatever I’m doing, sharing or posting, I celebrate it because I love it.



I am Joanna Dee. I am a Nashville graphic + web designer. I have designed for a wide variety of clients but I most love working with the music industry. Music is the reason I design. I was surrounded by music as a little girl and it has followed me into my career. I am happiest when I am designing album artwork or artist websites.

If I am not designing, I’m usually laughing with my husband and family, cuddling with the cutest Boston Terrier that ever lived, & standing in the front row at a concert in the town I adore, Nashville.

Joanna posts weekly about the inspiration she finds in her favorite music.
