Alyssa Varsanyi

UI Designer

Alyssa is always ready to tackle visual problems with high-energy, empathy, and inquisitiveness

I’m a User Interface Designer (UI) at Oomph, based in New Jersey but born and raised in upstate New York. I thrive in the creation process and am driven by a sincere curiosity and fascination with the intersection between design and data. I am unafraid to go against the grain to create meaningful, original outcomes that showcase delight. As a gender-nonconforming and neurodiverse person, I fiercely advocate for accessibility, inclusion, and empathy in everything I touch. Recently, I was honored to be named a "2024 Person to Watch" by Graphic Design USA Magazine (GDUSA).

I started my career as a graphic designer, then transitioned into a user interface designer with a high interest in user experience. In the summer of 2022, I earned a Master’s Degree in UX Design from Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA).

I’m a foodie who loves to travel and play tennis. In my downtime, you can find me listening to the same few Broadway soundtracks on repeat, creating art, and playing video games.
