Ashley Readler

Junior Graphic Designer

Charlottesville, VA, USA
Hello,

My name is Ashley Readler and I graduated from the South Carolina School of the Arts at Anderson University in 2014 and received my Bachelor of Arts degree with a concentration in Graphic Design and a minor in Art History.

Thanks to my education at Anderson University and my recent work experience at MASS MoCA I have a conceptually based background in advertising, branding, print design, web design, layout design, and typography. During my time at MASS MoCA I worked closely with the Design and Marketing Departments on a multitude of projects including posters and flyers for events, weekly ads for those events, and creating digital ads and graphics while also adhering to the brand standards of MASS MoCA. I also assisted with redesigning, weeding, and replacing the vinyl wall text for the Landscape Seen & Imagined photography exhibition by Clifford Ross. I am also fluent in a range of programs including Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Acrobat, and Microsoft Office Suite and have an interest in photography and illustration.

I’m excited to take the next step in my career and am enthusiastic about working with you in the future! If you're looking for a freelancer for small projects, or a full-time designer for your company, do not hesitate to message me here on Behance or contact me at ashley.readler@gmail.com.

I look forward to hearing from you,

Ashley Readler
