The brains…

I’m just a simple girl, living in a big world, who said she would always try.

So cliche’

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.

The looks…

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.
