Here at 2930 Creative we have a team full of different characters! Today we are highlighting our very talented Art Director Ashley Smith. As the Art Director for 2930 Ashley deals with anything related to design. She collaborates with the clients and the team to make sure that the visual communication for the designs are all complete and to everyone’s liking, especially the client’s. Ashley design work includes logos, branding collateral, ads, website comps, social media graphics, brochures, and more. Her favorite part about each project is, “coming up with the creative solution to help our clients’ businesses succeed.”
A little background about Ashley: she has been doing graphic design for as long as she can remember. While growing up she loved computer games that were art based or just playing around with Microsoft Paint for hours at a time. Ashley’s mom was also a graphic designer, and she taught Ashley how to use Photoshop when she was just in middle school. You could say graphic design runs in the family. Ashley graduated from Oral Roberts University with a degree in graphic design. “At first it was just a hobby. Then in college it became a passion, and now a career. I’ve always wanted a career where I could help people, and I love that design lets me use art to do just that.”
Ashley’s favorite part about working for 2930 is the people that she gets to work with every day. I guess she thinks we are all pretty awesome in our own nerdy way! Of course, Ashley is a little nerdy herself, and some of her favorite hobbies include DIY projects, raising golden retrievers, eating sweet potato fries, and spending time with her handsome husband Eric.
We hope you enjoyed the first of our employee spotlights as you got to know Ashley. Stay tuned to see the next person who will be highlighted!
