I am Sonja Ashe, Art Director and owner of Ashe Design. In 1988, I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Westfield State College. I also studied fine arts abroad at Canterbury Christ Church University in Canterbury, England. Currently, I live in New England with my husband and 2 children doing what I love...being a wife, mother and designer!
As a graphic designer for over 28 years, I've acquired extensive Photoshop knowledge, starting in Adobe Photoshop 1.0. My training began on a Mac Plus (yes the one with the built-in 9" monitor!) which I later used for a foot stool...it was the perfect size. I have since moved to the Windows platform. My experience includes not only print and website design, but broadcast design as well...having spent 15 years at a local NBC affiliate. I absolutely love designing and am so happy to offer my designs to you.
At Ashe Design, we understand that your clients will want a lot of personalization and customization. We provide you with the ability to meet your clients' expectations with a full line of templates that are both easy to use and fully customizable. As Art Director, I work closely with my team of designers and personally guarantee the usability of all of our products.
The difference between these templates and others is they are totally customizable. Our templates are NOT simple "knockouts" in the background, under which a photo is placed. We provide you with instructional tutorials that will walk you through the simple steps to create clipping groups in Photoshop with your photos, thus allowing the individual layers to be moved around and turned on or off. This allows you to lessen the number of photos on the template or change colors or text on any of the individual layers.
Now that you know a little about Ashe Design, and me I’d, like to proudly introduce you to my team, which has helped me grow Ashe Design to the full-service design company we are today.
As my sister and lead designer, Becky is instrumental in making sure we have fresh new designs each week. In addition to being a talented designer, Becky has an eye for design trends, which allows her to manage our design calendar and create products that are both classic and cutting edge. She’s the brilliant mind behind many of our new product ideas and always brings fresh and creative ideas to our team.
I call Sandy, Mom, but you know her as the best customer service rep available. If you ever have problems with your downloads, using a file or just a general question, Sandy is always near the computer ready to return your emails with amazing tips and tricks to keep you moving. She takes pride in her job and works extremely hard to make sure every one of our customers is happy with their purchase.
Together we make up the Ashe Design team, dedicated to bringing you, and your business, templates that are easy to use and customize.
If we can help you in any way, please don’t hesitate to ask. We love helping photographers grow their business.
