Currently, I work as a book cover designer for Write Bloody Publishing, America's largest independent poetry publishing house. I'm also an in-house designer and developer for NPR’s Austin affiliates KUT and KUTX. I design unique brand identities for statewide and national radio programs and podcasts. I help award winning reporters translate radio stories into visual and interactive digital products.

But I wasn't always a designer, in the past, I've also worked as an interactive producer and developer for great companies like PUNY Entertainment, Allen Interactions, and Carlson Marketing Worldwide. This experience has been invaluable to me as a designer who works with a diverse portfolio of clients everyday. I prioritize clear and extensive communication and managing expectations with everyone that I work with.

In my spare time, you can catch me running on Ocean Beach, reading in Golden Gate Park, and performing sketch and improvisational comedy all around the Bay Area.

Working with Ashley was fantastic. She asked all the right questions to get a feel for my project and gave me some fantastic ideas of her own. Will definitely be working with her again in the future.

From first to last, Ashley Siebels was a delight to work with--timely, professional, talented, generous and flexible. She created a stunning cover for my book that hits a pitch perfect (difficult) note. She managed to combine images and fonts that, like the stories they advertise, oscillate seductively between the sublime and the ridiculous--a great marketing advantage. I can not recommend her ...
