MEET ASHLEY:

Growing up in the artsy, town of Savannah, Georgia, Ashley Austin was constantly taking art classes, working on crafty projects, painting, and lettering. This passion for all things visually creative led Ashley into a career in graphic design.

After several years honing her craft in New York City, she launched Fine Day Press in 2010, a line of colorful, modern invitations and paper goods based on her painting and lettering designs. Ashley’s designs have been recognized by many print and online publications, including Martha Stewart Weddings, Design Sponge, and Oh So Beautiful Paper.

Craving a return to her southern roots, she moved to Austin in 2014, along with her husband Russell, who is also a designer. She is so happy to be a part of Austin’s awesome creative community!
