Hi there, I’m Aisling!

I’ve spent over a decade working in agencies and startups, designing for different mediums; coding responsive, user-friendly web experiences; and converting customers into loyal audiences. Now, I am so excited to bring those years of experience to your project.

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.

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 me, I’m usually on Instagram.

Content is Queen

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.

When I work with my design clients, I like the relationship to be very open and collaborative, and I hope that continues into the space I’ve created on this website. If you have questions or want to learn more about a certain topic, please send me a message. My DMs are always open!

What’s in a name?

I have a bit of a tricky name (it’s said like “Ashleen,” by the way), so it only makes sense that my brand does too.

So, is it “kon-tent”, as in things that are contained, or “kuhn-tent” as in mildly happy? Well, it’s a bit of both. It’s filling your life with aesthetically pleasing things, while appreciating the life that you’ve got.

Personally, I pronounce it Pretty Content, as in “yeah, I’m pretty content.” Which is to say that life could be so much worse!
