I'll tell your story with thoughtful design.
Hello! My name is Alyssa Murray. My design business, Hawk & Bloom, specializes in crafting brands, websites and digital products. I am on a quest to help passionate people make positive change in the world by giving them the compass and tools they need to act fearlessly.
So, what does Hawk & Bloom mean? I chose this name because it’s a combination of words that fits perfectly with my design philosophy. Hawk represents clarity and focus, and Bloom embodies growth and vibrancy. While hawks are visionaries of the air, flowers are the heart of the earth.
I love this dichotomy between the sky and the land and how it relates to my creative process.
Visualize this: It starts at 10,000 feet. First, I seek to gain an overview and understanding of my client’s vision. This helps me map out the journey ahead. Then, l plant seeds and begin to nurture their growth. Throughout this experience, we collaborate to discover where our true destination lies. Thus unveiling the most authentic expression of the brand.
Welcome to Hawk & Bloom.

Sharing my love for design from the wine country.
I discovered my passion for design while interning at Teen Vogue in New York. After that experience, I sought out a college design program and graduated from University of California, Davis with a BA in Design. I have spent the majority of my career working in-house at tech companies in San Francisco such as Change.org and TripAdvisor, designing digital experiences that millions of people use every day.
I made the decision to carve my own path and move to Sonoma, California (where I grew up) and start my design business, Hawk & Bloom. I'm reconnecting with my love for nature and enjoying all that the wine country has to offer. My daily routine involves feeding my 3 small goats and a pony. I love long walks around the valley, taking improv classes, going to farmer's market, and cooking (one of my favorite cookbooks is Gwyneth Paltrow's It's All Easy).
Hawk & Bloom designs brands, websites and digital products for a variety of businesses. My clients include but are not limited to entrepreneurs, tech companies and social good organizations. I'm interested in solving problems related to social causes, health and wellness, lifestyle, hospitality, food and beverage, art and design, fashion, environment, and education.
That’s me. That’s Hawk & Bloom. It's nice to meet you!
