It's nice to meet you.

I am a seasoned and accomplished exhibition and graphic designer with more than 15 years of experience, specializing in natural history, science, and education-focused projects in both the public and private sectors. Throughout my career, I have showcased my design skill and creativity, receiving accolades and recognition for my work.


As a lead exhibition designer, I have a strong ability to conceptualize and execute captivating museum exhibitions. I am skilled in creating engaging and functional designs that enhance visitor understanding and interaction with exhibition content. My attention to detail and dedication to producing clean and visually appealing designs have earned me a reputation for excellence in the field.


With extensive expertise in various design software, including Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign, I have successfully produced camera-ready artwork and eye-catching graphics for exhibitions, marketing materials, and social media promotions. Additionally, I possess proficiency in Vectorworks, allowing me to develop technical drawings and elevations for exhibit components.


My portfolio includes a diverse range of projects, from 1,000 sq. ft. photography-based shows to 5,000 sq. ft. object-heavy exhibitions, where I have taken on a lead role in the design and execution. Notably, I received the Smithsonian Award for Exhibition Excellence as the lead graphic designer for the "Objects of Wonder" exhibition.


In addition to my exhibition design work, I have a keen eye for visual media and have crafted logos, brochures, collateral material, signage, and digital art for various projects, including social media and presentations. My ability to adapt to different platforms, both on Mac and PC, allows me to efficiently produce quality design solutions.


Throughout my career, I have demonstrated superior drawing and artistic skills, incorporating perspective sketches and original illustrations to enhance the overall impact of the projects I undertake. I am a collaborative team player, but also thrive in individual work settings, and I take pride in my resourcefulness and lateral thinking to find innovative solutions.


In parallel with my exhibition and graphic design career, I co-founded Ashley Sophia, LLC, where I contributed to market research, business plan development, and e-commerce website design. My comprehensive marketing strategies and social media content creation have played a vital role in the success of the venture.


My educational background includes a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Design and an Associate of Art in Graphic Design, further solidifying my expertise and passion for design. With a track record of successful projects, multiple awards, and a reputation for excellence, I am a highly qualified and accomplished exhibition and graphic designer, poised to continue creating impactful and engaging experiences within the fields of natural history, science, and education.
