Our special guest on May 17th is Ashley Green, founder of Local Legends and creator of online community Girl Bosses of PEI!
Endlessly creative and entrepreneurial to the core, Ashley Green sees a world of captivating possibilities wherever she looks. A PEI-based freelance graphic designer, Ashley lives for the opportunity to help entrepreneurs, businesses, and organizations define their unique identity and brand.
Specializing in visual identities, publication, and packaging design, Ashley has over 8 years of experience working in graphic design. One of her many superpowers is being able to adapt to the diverse needs of her clients. She’s worked with farmers and fishers, insurance companies, hotels, breweries, music festivals, restaurants, computer engineers, and many other clients. She’s as comfortable developing beer labels for a hip craft brewery as she is designing a travel guide for a destination management organization.
Ashley admits to a slight obsession with typography that’s evident in her thoughtful font selections. Her design prowess, coupled with her natural ability to understand what her clients need are reflected in her impressive design portfolio.
A graduate of the Interactive Multimedia program at Holland College (2011), Ashley keeps on top of industry trends and tools through online courses, workshops and graphic design conferences. In addition to her full-time gig as a freelance graphic designer, Ashley is also the owner/operator of Local Legends Apparel, the leader of Girl Bosses of PEI, and a member of Etsy Team PEI. She likes to stay busy.
Originally from French River, PEI and a country girl at heart, Ashley now lives in Charlottetown, with her husband, Jonathan, and their two pups, Beau and Averi, and their cat, Reginald. Other things she loves in no particular order, include: traveling, good beer, thrifting, interior design, and music (Hawksley Workman). And yes, in case it’s not obvious yet, she’s a tonne of fun!
