Hello, I am Ashley Kyles

Designer and Web Developer

I craft bold and beautiful pixels...

Once upon a time, the internet was created. My fascination for this hugely complex and boundless network has been the basis of inspiration for my inner artist ever since I was a little girl. From my dad's tiny Chicago home office, crayon sketches quickly evolved into abstract scribbles in Windows 95 Paint and by the time I was 11, I was hooked. I have been honing my skills as a graphic designer ever since.

Fast forward to high school, when I got a book report as a homework assignment. We were told we had "creative freedom" in our presentation -- I took this cookie and ran with it! Instead of crafting together a poster board or essay, I decided to create a web site. Little did I know at the time, this assignment would be the genesis of my career as a web developer.

As my interest in this field became more prominent, I spent a lot of my free time learning new tricks of the trade by offering graphic and web design resources for free. I was soon noticed and sought out by not only my peers, but by business owners in my community. By the time I went to college, where I furthered sharpened my development knives, I single-handedly created over five professional websites before I had ever touched a programming assignment in my college courses. I took on various assignments through off-site projects and internships, learning several new techniques with each project. Most of the acumen I acquired for design and development has been self-cultivated.
