Visual identity design for Ashley Young, a Kingston-based lifestyle photographer. Ashley is a genuine and contentious photographer, who by nature helps her clients overcome their insecurities to let their beauty (i.e. “inner light”) shine through. Ashley doesn’t digitally retouch people’s “flaws”, she shines light on, and celebrates them! This message of genuineness and “inner light” is conveyed through the strategic use of shape (i.e. the “A” brandmark design), colour, typography, and the tone of photography across all branding applications.

Why am I a designer?
Design isn't just my profession, it's my passion. I genuinely love what I do, and that love translates to my conscientious approach to branding and meticulous design style.
Why should you hire me?
What really makes me tick is helping creative entrepreneurs. My passion lies in visual expression and I thrive working for like-minded creatives. I have worked with makers and creators from fashionistas to film makers, to artists and photographers.
