I'm Ashley Proulx. A graphic designer driven by a strong passion to empower others and solve complex challenges. My vision is to utilize design as a tool to promote social change and help those who are marginalized and oppressed be heard.
During, and since graduating from OCAD University, I have had the pleasure of working across many industries, from mental health services to local coffee roasting. My previous work experience has allowed me to gain diverse knowledge in design including systems design, visual brand strategy, and packaging design.
A few kind words..
"Having worked with Ashley for past few years has been a wonderful journey. Immensely satisfied with her range of talent, work ethics and consummate team player attitude. Consistently meeting and exceeding the demands of internal departments while completing her award-winning academic assignments is a tremendous feat. She is a great addition and anchor to any team."

"Ashley was a student in my section of GD Workshop at OCAD University from September 2017 to May 2018. This is a yearlong senior capstone course where students develop an undergraduate graphic design thesis on a topic of their choosing. Her thesis project, Junk’d Food, was well researched over a prolonged period. She conceived and designed a set of design interventions brought together as an effective and fun campaign aimed at reducing food waste by urban young adults. Ashley was truly committed to her topic, which resulted in her stellar performance in the course. It was a pleasure seeing her thrive. In sum, Ashley is a motivated designer who strives to excel, and genuinely cares for environmental and societal issues."
