I adore working with a wide range of clients to design bespoke branding for creatives and small business owners. As an enneagram 2w3 through and through, I never get tired of seeing our clients fall in love with their biz all over again.

My Story

When my mom was diagnosed with stage 3A breast cancer years ago, I kept seeing monarch butterflies everywhere. When I looked up their symbolic meaning, I discovered that they are a sign of growth, rebirth and that everything will be okay. It was a sign I couldn’t ignore, so I followed my gut to go back to my branding and website design roots and rebranded to Monarch Design Co. My mom recovered and I’m so happy I followed where the monarchs were leading me.

My story began before I can even remember. I was always surrounded by design growing up: my dad was a designer and Art Director, so I naturally followed in his footsteps. In 2018, I started Monarch Design Co. as a passion project doing calligraphy, laser cut signs, seating charts, live calligraphy and workshops. Before I knew it, it grew into a full-blown business and I had to make one of the hardest decisions I've ever had to make: stay at my full-time job working at an ad agency or pursue my own creative path. I decided to bet on myself, trust the journey and dive in before I was fully ready — and I’ve never looked back.

Ashley!!! I am beyond happy, excited, and grateful. Thank you for ALL of this. 

I worked with Ashley and her team on a full brand rehaul and brand new website. They brought my vision to life in a way I never could have dreamed of. I feel like my website and brand now finally match who I am and what I bring to the table. They walked me through the process every step of the way and I always knew if I needed clarity on something, they were there to help. I’m eternally grateful to Ashley and her team for knocking it out of the park for me.

We understand that branding design goes well beyond a beautiful logo design: it is the lasting impression you leave with your customers and clients — no matter where they interact with your business. In a world where loyalty and trust are a small business’s two most valuable resources, we take the time to get to know the essence of your business to create a captivating, compelling and consistent brand that tells your story and invites your target audience to become a part of it. 

We put your story in the driver’s seat: we live for hearing about the history of you and your business, your dreams and aspirations.

In the end, you're left with a brand that authentically reflects the heart of your life's work and paves the way for your business to thrive.

Let’s Work Together

Become Irresistible to Your Dream Client

Learn More

In an online world where it takes just milliseconds for your audience to form an opinion about your brand and 94% of those first impressions are design related, a magnetic brand and a designer website is the difference between your dream client clicking away or sticking around for more. The catch: it takes around 5 to 7 impressions for them to remember your brand — meaning that presenting your brand consistently across platforms is the key to building and growing your biz.
