ALAMOGORDO — The New Mexico Museum of Space History has announced Alika Arisumi as its newest staff member. Arisumi, a longtime resident of Alamogordo, began his new position on July 25 as a graphic designer at the museum.
Arisumi has always had a passion for graphic design. From the age of 12, he was gifted with Photoshop software by his father and used it, not to edit photos, but to design creative works.
“We are delighted to welcome Alika to the museum and look forward to his bringing his passion and talent for the graphic arts to the enhancement of our exhibits and facilities,” said Museum Director General Chris Orwoll. .
A 2001 graduate of Alamogordo High School, Arisumi served on the yearbook committee in his junior and senior years, in addition to participating in the marching band drums. When he’s not creating logos or other graphic art for his company What’s Good Design, he likes to go on adventures with his three boys (8, 7 and 5). His eldest (22) is stationed at Creech Air Force Base in Las Vegas, Nevada. Prior to joining the Space History Museum, Arisumi served as a youth pastor for 10 years at his local church.
