Ashton translates big ideas into powerful tools for brands of all sizes. On every project, our strategy-led approach ensures that the end result is beautiful and impactful.
We start every project with a deep dive into your existing brand, industry, and challenge. We conduct extensive research, which can include everything from site visits to report analyses, stakeholder interviews, and community engagement.
The heart of our process. At this stage, we distill everything we’ve learned about your project, company, and challenge into a defined path forward. With your approval, this single, actionable approach then serves as our North Star for all future project decisions.
Where things get creative. If strategy sets our direction, concepting explores all the inventive ways of moving towards our destination. While the possibilities may seem endless, we’ll share only the most effective solutions that meet your short-term goals and will support your brand long-term.
