Ashley Jackson

Independent Graphic Designer

I am an independent graphic designer based in the tall pine trees of East Texas. I have more than 20 years professional experience creating marketing graphics, branding, and web design for non-profit organizations and independently-owned businesses.

Design work is a beautiful combination of art and math, the blending of cold-hard numbers with creativity. In college, I thought my skills in both math and art classes made me odd. Since entering the workforce, I have learned it’s that exact combination of skills that makes me good at what I do.
