Branding: What if?

Throughout her studies at the VCA under the Graphic Design Major in the Bachelor of Design, Ashlea has developed an appreciation for playful and experimental design through both analog and digital means.

Her designs are highly intentional, using visuals deeply grounded in her concepts. Ashlea's areas of interest lie within branding, publication, and typography.

She is eager to continue absorbing knowledge and skills as she moves away from her studies, allowing her love for all things creative to flourish.
