I'm Ashley Carre, I live in Manchester, UK and I'm a graphic and web designer, currently freelancing full-time.

I'm specialized, but not limited to, finance and tech startups from the US and UK. For the past 8 years I've been designing for companies like HP, UsableNet, Equitini, Gresham, Blackbaud & Genpact. I also have agency experience: I worked for High Level Thinkers, Zugara Inc, Aesbus and FullStack Digital.

I complement my visual design skills with UX knowledge and a strong passion for entrepreneurship and business.

I'm entirely self-taught, which made me develop an attitude of continuous learning. That's why for the past two years I have been working towards becoming a full Front-End Developer. Why? Coding is fun. Expect some updates on the portfolio soon!

When I'm not designing, I develop games, play sci-fi shooters, devour business books and learn new languages. I also love to take long walks with audiobooks when I catch a sunny day in rainy England.

Areas of Work

Employment History

"Ashley listened carefully, understanding exactly what I needed. Her designs were clean, clear and bright. They gave the content a strong, confident feel. As a non-designer it is a great joy when a designer can bring to life what you imagine in your head."

Lisa Cowan, Equitini

"Ashley has been incredible! Super fast responses, quick changes, and beautiful design work. My presentation is going to kick some ass."

Joseph Quinn, Pilates Metrics

"All I can say is, wow! She took a fairly standard, boring PPT deck and really made it first-class. Something I can proudly use with business clients. She really knows how to lay out slides for impact--without losing my original meaning/intent. Excellent design. Very professional."

Kathryn Korostoff, Research Rockstar

"She is such a talented designer and a joy to work with on a project. Her work is original and high quality. Fast work, good communication. Very happy and she will certainly be designing out any other design we need. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!"

Charles Snipes, DataTriangle
