I’m just a simple girl, living in a big world, who said she would always try.
I am Ashton, but you may of figured that out already. If you count the time I was at TAFE, I’ve been a graphic designer for about 7-8 years. Straight out of high school, I put on my big girl panties & went to TAFE. First year felt like it wasn’t for me & I was a toenail away from pulling out, but I stuck to it & here I am.
I hate to fall into that cliche’, but it stands to say – I love what I do.
I’ve always been creative, painting, pottery even drama & dance, so it a bit of a no-brainer when I was in yr 10 as to what path I would follow. I’m not going to lie, it was a big toss up between TAFE for Graphic Design or to attend WAAPA (West Australia Academy of Performing Arts) but my mum convinced me to have a back up, i.e.; an ACTUAL job.. Nothing against Actors.. I still dream of being a famous actress, singing (badly) and dancing on the big stage of Broadway.
3 years of TAFE taught me to love design from a whole different perspective. Second year in took me to the depths of 3D design. Something I had never really been interested in, but soon fell in love with.
I graduated with an Advanced Diploma in Multimedia & 3D design & walked away young, free & full of dreams of working for PIXAR..
The following year I landed my first job at a small boutique Corporate Design studio. Within 6 months I was promoted to Studio Manager & took on higher responsibilities. I learnt more than I could ever imagine here, and for 2.5 years it was a great job. Unfortunately, I think I grew out of the role and decided to leave, find myself & start my freelance business.
I went into a mainstream job away from Graphic Design while I looked for the perfect job. It took a while, but eventually I found it..
I love freelancing in my spare time, as it keeps me on my toes. I have some wonderful clients who have been with me since my first job, and it gives me a wider range of jobs to work on.
Anyway… I seem to of found myself dribbling.
Look he doesn’t bring much to the table.. Currently he is snoring at my feet. But he’s good to look at, so I keep him around.
He is available for cuddles, or walks, or hoovering any left overs. Even though he is fat & is now officially on a diet.
I have personally used Ashton for numerous jobs over the years. Her capabilities are beyond expectations and her vision for design is unique and creative. She can take an ordinary report and whip it into something absolutely incredible. I will continue to use Ashton for all my personal and business needs for graphic design
I have recently sent out the invitations for my 21st which Ashton organised for me! My friends and family have also commented on how amazing the invitations looked! Thanks again so much Ashton!
Thank you thank you. I am so thrilled with the way you captured the little details which mean so much to us. I especially like that you can see that bit of bling in my dress ! So pleased I asked you to do this for us and more pleased than I can say with what you have achieved. Missed your calling girl! I just finished downloading the files. Luv luv luv them
Ashton was so amazing to work with. Knew exactly what I wanted in a design before I even did. The end product was amazing and the girls who received the cards are in love with them. Just perfect! I would not hesitate to recommend Ashton to my family
Those variations look AMAZING. Thanks so much :-) I am super happy with them all!!
Fantastic products! Ash is very professional in her approach and committed to producing high quality products! She had some great suggestions and her attention to detail was awesome! Will definitely be using and recommending her services where I can!
Thanks so much for everything you have done, I get comments on everything all the time. So grateful. The business cards are perfect, every time I give one out I get comments about them.
We have had a family photo shoot by Ashton and we are delighted with the photos. She has captured all our love and warmth and they have a real natural look. It must have been challenging for her with a group of around 30 and lots of little ones who don't like to sit still or strike the pose at the right time. She took it all in her stride and still kept a smile on her face. She is so professional in her work and extremely talented and I would be more than happy to personally recommend her to anyone that wants beautiful memories forever. Thanks Ashton
Absolutely amazing . Thank you so much ash for capturing all these special moments of our day . Moments I'll remember forever x
