Hello, I'm Alicia.
I founded Distillery A Creative in 2016 with multiple offerings under one umbrella: boutique presentation design and 1:1 executive speaker support, brand strategy development, and freelance graphic design and illustration. With 20+ years experience in corporate events, marketing communications, and presentation design, I can help bring your story to life through visual storytelling.


Executive visual communications
As a seasoned presentation development expert, I specialize in crafting boutique presentations for executive keynotes, corporate events, and pivotal moments. Together, we'll craft a unique story and powerful visuals that will invite people to sit up and listen. During my career at Microsoft, I led design teams, managed live event creative production, and brought teams together with common goals, all while creating content for top tier keynotes. 
COVID-19 Update:
Now more than ever, being able to clearly express your ideas visually in virtual meetings is a necessary component to successful strategic communication. Not everyone learns from listening alone!
Tip: Consider providing accompanying visuals to be included as a pre-read or takeaway. 


Brand strategy
I'm passionate about creating brand strategies and identities that deliver on their promise. Every business, no matter the size, needs a flexible and unique brand identity that helps them connect with their customer. Let's work together to build your brand essentials and enhance your voice.


Illustration
Everyone has a story, and I'm a firm believer in the saying "a picture is worth a thousand words." A drawing or illustration will elevate your words and ideas, helping them resonate with your audience. In today's digital world, most of us are surrounded by so much content that it's hard to drown out all the noise. Hand-drawn illustration is human, refreshing, and creates space for connection.
