Hey! I’m Ashlea, a brand stategist and modern design educator for go-getting creatives ready to master the skills currency needed to confidently build their profitable freelance design business.
With my suite of educational experiences, I eliminate the confusion, chaos and complexity of discovering, defining and refining your value as a design entrepreneur.
I graduated from KPU with honors in business marketing, returned and earned a digital arts degree from BCIT, taking the typical corporate journey before being headhunted to work as the motion graphics artist at City TV, where I then ventured into designing user interfaces for a leading biometrics brand and pioneering the UX/UI for one of the first live stream video sites (pre-YouTube days!) generating more than 1M views in the first day.
In an age where digital sharing has become prolifically ordinary, the lost art of knowledge sharing feels extraordinarily special.
Giving back to the community and inspiring go-getting creatives to design their dreams brings me so much joy. And being able to help you skip the stress of figuring it all out yourself (because let’s be honest: that isn’t fun), means I can help you become more purposeful and powerful faster than ever.
…Sparing you the 20+ years it took me to develop the experience and expertise I have today.
I’ve taken my 20 years of experience building and maintaining a successful design business, blended it with my history as a professional design educator teaching at the University level, and then shaken in the practical knowledge I gained empowering Fortune 500, corporate, and internationally publicly traded companies to reach their brand and marketing goals.
