Hey there! I’m Ashley.
I’m a freelance graphic designer and project manager based in Nashville, Tennessee. Over the past 7 years, I’ve crafted a skillset that includes experience working on everything from packaging and print, illustration, and user experience, to event and project management. I pride myself on attention to detail, unwavering work ethic, out-of-the-box thinking, and a continuing drive and passion for creating. My 5-minute claim to fame is having my face printed on the back of Kraft macaroni and cheese boxes across the US after winning an art contest when I was 9. I guess you could say I’ve loved being a creator for as long as I can remember!
I’m always looking for chances to expand my network and opportunities for new projects.

Need a little more background?
I’m an Industrial Design graduate from Auburn University in May of 2013. War Eagle!
Throughout my education I had the opportunity to work with incredible companies such as, Nintendo, American Greetings, Emerson Tool Company, Masterbuilt, and VF Imagewear.
Upon graduation, I moved to New York City to begin my career as a packaging designer for an electronic accessories company called iWorld. Many of my packages can be found on the shelves of TJ Maxx, Academy Sports, Cabela's, Five Below, and locally owned boutiques. After braving the big city of New York, I decided it was time to move somewhere that listed sweet tea as a standard menu item.
During my first year and a half in Nashville, I showcased my leadership, organizational, and management skills as a Project Manager for Anode, Inc. Anode is a multi-media design firm located in East Nashville. Throughout my time as Project Manager, I had the opportunity to oversee projects with many different clients including Bridgestone, American Tire Distributors, Nashville Public Library, and Country Music Hall of Fame.
In 2016 and 2017, I could be found dreaming up designs for paper goods at a local boutique in Franklin, Tennessee. My role as Graphic Designer included concept to completion of invitations, marketing materials, and event pieces partnered with photo editing and print production.
Recently, I had the opportunity to work with a Tech start-up, ALECIA, as their Senior Graphic Designer. I was responsible for overseeing a team of designers and creating material ranging from social media and marketing, presentations, and video graphics, as well as, spearheading designs for the app and website that showcase their ‘watch and shop’ technology.
