Is not a sleeper
Can't do ordinary
Born with a creative heart, soul and mind, Ashleigh’s career emerged from a life-long passion for art and beautiful design.
Ashleigh graduated with a Bachelor in Visual Communication/Graphic Design in 2009 and a Post Graduate Diploma in Visual Arts and Design in 2010 from the University of South Australia. She also achieved:
- Best Graduate award from the Australian Graphic Design Association (AGDA).
- Best Graduate award from the Design Institute of Australia (DIA).
Ashleigh then honed her skills at three reputable Adelaide design studios before joining the communikate et al team, where she was mentored by talented senior designers and directors.
Ashleigh’s work has been awarded nationally at the AGDA Awards and she has developed a strong reputation in the industry for producing high quality design and illustrations.
Ashleigh combines her education, experience, abstract thinking and skills to strike a wonderful balance between being playful and highly organised. She sees creative possibilities everywhere and finds inspiration from all aspects of life. Ashleigh loves experimenting with various concepts and mediums, and implementing them professionally and efficiently.
With a strong background in brand development for both large corporations and boutique companies, Ashleigh believes that a brand goes beyond the mark. It needs to evolve over time and adapt to changing needs. She thinks about branding as an entire living system, considering how it’s applied, how flexible it is and what components can be deconstructed and used across all platforms. The outcome is a rich tapestry of considered and consistent design.
Ashleigh specialises in all areas of graphic design including:
- corporate identity
- collateral development
- exhibition work
- electronic media
Ashleigh takes pride in her outstanding attention to detail from the initial concept through to production and final delivery.
She places great importance in establishing and maintaining strong client and supplier relationships. A few of her many clients have included:
- Windmill Theatre Company
- Mercedes College
- Clayton Church Homes
