Opportunities

We’re always looking for design unicorns. If you feel you’d be a good fit for our team, we’d love to hear from you.

Community

While projects take us near and far, we never forget that Baltimore built us.

The Studio on Park
Ashton is proud to announce the imminent opening of our new Baltimore City studio. The space at 844 Park Ave. has been reimagined to serve as a homebase for strategic thought and creativity. Soon, this former grocery store will again be packed with timeless brands (they’ll just be of our own design).
Local Engagement
We believe that design training should be accessible to all, whether in a traditional setting or through a grassroots initiative. Multiple Ashton team members teach at area institutions, including MICA and Towson University, and our studio regularly volunteers time and skills to support community-based projects. One of the nearest and dearest to our hearts? Our decade-plus partnership with Baltimore Design School.

Est. 1985

Design influences everything, and if it’s done well you won’t even notice.

—David Ashton, Principal Emeritus

David founded Ashton Design in 1985 and, in 35 years at its helm, established it as a pillar of the Baltimore design community.

To David, everything is design—a philosophy he applied with immense thought and care to each project that came through the door. He built a like-minded team whose collaborative style earned the trust of many clients and earned the studio international renown for its timeless quality.

In 2020, David transferred ownership of his namesake studio to his long-time creative leads, Jenny and Alexey, ensuring Ashton Design would continue to deliver exceptional work for decades to come. He’s still a friendly face around the studio.
