Hello! My name is Ash. I'm a graphic designer based in Reading.

A little bit about me

Background

I graduated from the University of Reading with a BA (Hons) in Graphic Communication & Typography. Since then I've been working for the university's in-house design studio.

Skills and experience

I have an excellent knowledge of the majority of Adobe Creative Suite products, particularly InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator. I also have a strong working knowledge of HTML & CSS.

Coming from a typographic background has given me an appreciation for fine detail in all aspects of my work.

Gaming & giant robots

In my spare time I enjoy building Japanese model kits. I'm also an avid gamer and have spent many an hour stopping pesky spies from sappin' my turrets in TF2 and taking on the rebel fleet in Faster Than Light.

Fancy a game? Add me on steam.

My work
