I'm Ashley. I'm an Art Director currently living in Boston, Massachusetts. I am also a photographer who also loves graphic design - in a sense, I'm a bit of a hyphenate. Beyond photography and design, I love exploring random and new places and driving with no destination in mind. I also love old things. Anything that has (and shows) it's age, I love. I'm also a big fan of old type and logos...the skill & precision that went into them is something I envy.
I'm currently working at Arnold Worldwide in Boston but am always looking to take on small freelance jobs to fill whatever free time I may have...because you know, too much free time is obviously terrible. Feel free to browse my work to see if we'd be a good fit for each other, and if you're interested in working together, let's get in touch!
I received my Bachelor of Science in Business Administration: Marketing at the Whittemore School of Business, University of New Hampshire in 2008.
Just before graduating, I took an extracurricular class; Intro to Coding. Through this class I was introduced to the endless possibilities of web design and totally fell in love. Shortly after, I purchased Dreamweaver and Fireworks and thus began my creative "teachings." I'm a self-taught designer & AD, and have no formal educational training in my field. Some may view that as a disadvantage, I've just always felt that the best teacher is experience. You'll never learn unless you practice and do.
In 2008 I took a job at Modernista! as an Administrative Assistant. I credit M! for my initial introduction into advertising & for allowing me the opportunity to learn from some of the best in the field.
In June 2010, I left M! and began freelancing as a graphic designer full-time. In 2011, I took a full-time job as Graphic Designer at Healthworks Fitness. Here I also did design work for their brother gym, GymIt.
In September 2012, I took a job as Layout Artist at Arnold Worldwide. In May 2014 I was promoted to Jr. Art Director. Since July 2015, I have been acting as Art Director at Arnold.
