Allysen enjoys working with people and organizations making a difference in the world. Originally from New York, this brand strategist, multidisciplinary designer, and entrepreneur launched her first venture at the age of 20, learning how to take a vision and turn it into a reality at a young age. Although she has a background in multiple areas including publishing, sales, marketing, communications, strategy, management and business development, Allysen, a Jamaican-American, is most passionate about developing brands.
During a rough season in her life, God revealed to Allysen that strong identity and a clear vision were essential to the foundation of not only herself but also for any success and growth of organization or business. Out of that rough season, she launched what would become the Antebellum Design Co. As the owner and creative director, Allysen works to develop brands, plan impactful strategies and create unique designs for start-ups, nonprofits, and small businesses. To date, the Tampa-based agency has served over 100 clients and brands.
She looks forward to serving Mentoring with Purpose and utilizing her skills to make a greater impact on the community. Allysen received her bachelor’s from the University of Florida’s College of Journalism and Communications and currently serves as President-Elect of the Tampa Gator Club.
