About me

Recent Graphic & Communication Design graduate of Leeds University, looking for entry level creative positions. Speciality and focus on branding and animation, with a design style that intends to ensure brand has a clear structure and visual journey tied together, making sense in an intuitive way throughout. I want to experience and learn much more about my specific discipline, to add to my fantastic experiences of the industry thus far. Most notably at Bold in Stockholm and TBWA in Manchester, where I learned a lot about design, principles and people in two very different situations. What interests me? – Collaboration—Sharing knowledge across disciplines for mutual benefits I have once worked with an art student and a music student to develop a fashion brand, who knew? – Animation and moving image—making brands move is vital for the future of design – The power of branding & visual communication Béhance: www.behance.net/FergusAshby LinkedIn: www.linkedin.com/in/fergusashbydesn Vimeo: https://vimeo.com/fergreel
