Hi. My name’s Ash, a multidisciplinary graphic designer originally from London and now based in Bristol. Thank you for taking a look at some of my recent work.

With several years experience creating offline/online advertising and marketing campaigns for a hugely diverse range of clients – from a London Design Festival event exploring art and journalism to a world renowned research and data institute – and a long background in film, television and theatre, my aim is always to answer the brief as accurately and imaginatively as possible, through strong concept work, considered typography, bold use of colour and shape, dynamic movement, and relentless attention to detail. I am passionate about the craft of design and completely committed to delivering the most engaging well executed solution to a client’s brief.

Performance poetry and spoken word, acting, writing and directing – I have always had a love of storytelling through word and image. It was producing showreels and promo material for shows, actors and casting agencies that made me move into design full-time. :)
