Hi there, I’m
It’s said like “Ashleen,” if you were wondering!
I’m a creative designer, coder, and writer, with over a decade of experience as a professional web/app/print designer.
Originally from Calgary, Canada, for the last 7 years, I’ve called the beautiful South Coast of England home. I love autumn, musical theatre, and the 1940s. I am an ENFJ, Enneagram 6, and enthusiastic dog person.
If you’re looking for authentic branding and/or web design for your creative project, I’m the designer you need!
Pretty Content is my space to share everything I know about design, life online, and being creative, with you.
It’s a place to write about my passion for web accessibility, share my favourite design tools and trends, and to try new things.
I’m that friend that you can always find sitting in a café, working away at her latest project, waiting for you to drop by for a chat. I love talking through problems (and finding solutions!), giving advice, or just having a catch-up. So, please grab your favourite hot drink, have a read, and let me know if you need anything!
My door/DMs/inbox is always open!
FYI: the name is meant to be a bit of a joke
Yes, I love aesthetically pleasing things. I live and breathe aesthetically pleasing things. I have been a professional designer for over a decade. I love photography and posting pretty things on Instagram!
But the name is also a nod to the side of me that is a little bit sassy. Yes, I am pretty content. Relatively happy. Things could be better, but they could also be a whole lot worse. 💁🏻♀️
The official pronunciation of the name is Pretty Content is /kənˈtɛnt/, as in happy.

If you have any questions about anything I’ve written about, or anything else you want to know about creativity, design and being online, please do ask! It might even make for a good blog post!
I do not accept pre-written content from people who I don’t know personally, and I will not place links on existing blog posts. Sorry for the inconvenience!
