About Me

My name is Ashli Cook and I'm from Austin, TX and still reside there. I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor's in Fine Arts for Studio Art '10 and a Master's in Advertising in the Texas Creative sequence '12 for art direction.

I love to design things and make compelling work. I'm inspired by many things: art, vintage, music, great copy, interior design, DIY design, bold colors, HATCH show print, and modern design. I'm obsessed with typography, perfect leading and kerning, and great compositions. Most importantly, I love great branding and design.

From an early age of 5, it was clear I was destined to be an artist. I won many art awards growing up and started art lessons at the age of 10. My private studio teacher for 8 years, Joe, taught me how to explore art, color theory, and the world around me and never once hindered my creativity or my sense of the big picture. I received my Bachelor’s in Studio Art. I continued school fascinated by typography and computers. I then decided to design on a virtual canvas and received my Master’s in Advertising. My love for color palettes, type, and art expanded into branding and graphic design.

I am now founder of Ashli Design + Studio and Creative Director. I started the studio in 2015. We are an independent, strategic branding and design studio. We give brands personality and make them memorable. We can help with your business design needs and offer a full range of services from print to digital design. Brilliant branding takes courage, but we can help you step out of the box and create a brand your customers will love.
