Life After Breakfast PH is a creative studio that promotes everyday creativity through watercolored pattern designs, handmade art tools, and creative workshops.
Founded in 2011, Life After Breakfast documents designer Alessandra Lanot’s craft experiments, favorite tools, and creative process, all of which begin after her favorite (and the most important!) meal of the day.
Inspired by local culture, travel, and Philippine florals, Alessa’s design process begins with delicate watercolored illustrations. She collaborates with brands, and transforms her artworks into prints on paper, fabric, wallpaper, accessories and apparel.

For many years now, Alessa has been encouraging creativity by teaching watercolor workshops, with over 40 classes per year in various cities–Manila, around the Philippines, and in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Hong Kong, London, and New York.
To support these workshops, she has created Life After Breakfast handmade art tools–thoughtful, eco-friendly, and travel-sized watercolors, brushes, ceramic palettes, and art tools, to fit the needs of modern day creatives.
Alessa is also a creative consultant for DTI Go Lokal!, Design Center of the Philippines, and Go Negosyo. She teaches business workshops and mentors creatives, small business owners, local artisans, and organizations on how to professionalize their craft, and make a sustainable living as a creative. She teaches The Business of Design workshop series for the Design Center of the Philippines, and has recently launched the Creative Path business toolkit. Alessa is also the founder of Pipino, a Filipino vegan restaurant in Quezon City.
