The Short(ish) Version

Born in the 80's in Scotland. Grew up outside of a small town in northern Alberta. Always creating or learning something.

I'm Ashley McClure and I'm a Graphic Designer living on an acreage outside of Edmonton with my husband and our dogs. I am and always have been passionate about art and design.

I was enthralled with "Ogilvy on Advertising" since I first picked it up at 14 and have studied consumer influence, advertising, and creative visuals ever since then.

I love what I do. I'm a fan of both sophisticated simplicity and bold joyful colours. I believe good design is often invisible but sometimes can be so charming it captures all attention. 

 

My intention is to capture a brand's personality by creating compelling brand identities and design. Drop me a line any time!
