Hi, I'm Ashley - a graphic designer based in Sheffield, South Yorkshire. I specialise in brand and editorial design.
I am a creative problem solver who has a fresh perspective and hands-on approach to design. I take it upon myself to create aesthetically pleasing order within creative chaos. I use a balanced blend of logic and creativity to do this.
Away from design, I love playing squash and playing the piano to grade 6. I'm also a massive Marvel fan!
