A Hughes Design_Ashley Hughes

hi there

Hey y’all! I’m Ashley and I am the boss… and only one in this operation. I am a former kindergarten teacher who began dabbling in graphic and web design over 10 years ago when I began my career in education. I started off designing my own classroom websites, lesson materials, personal blogs, blogs and sites for colleagues, and it eventually led me down a path of designing clipart and graphics for teachers who create their own materials on TeachersPayTeachers. 

I stuck to designing clipart/graphics for the first 6 years while I taught full-time.  In 2016, I was blessed with the opportunity to transition to a stay-at-home-mom and still be able to do this part-time. For the past 4 years I’ve been able to focus more on branding and web design for a variety of clients.  I love to help others pursue their passions, whether it’s blogging, curriculum design, an entrepreneurial start-up, or sharing a hobby. I’d love to help you build your brand, design your site, and help you give your vision some life.  I’ll take care of the stressful design stuff while you focus on what’s important to you in your business.

I love Jesus, my family, coffee/wine depending on the time of day, and naps.
