Hey, there!

I’m Ashley Yantes

A Minnesota DESIGNER, photographer, mama and award-winning hugger (I have the trophy to prove it).

After graduating from St. Cloud State University with a B.S. in Communications with an emphasis in Photojournalism, I started my career in marketing. I was thrown into a department with no creatives and quickly realized that design was where I needed to be. I landed my first graphic design position shortly thereafter and never looked back. 

My design career began with in-house agencies at Caribou Coffee, Taylor Corporation, General Mills and Life Time before transitioning to the agency side with Kruskopf & Company and then Latitude as a Senior Studio Designer.

What I thought was my dream job turned into more late nights than I can count and kept me away from the ones I love most. In 2019, I made the decision to go freelance. It has given me the opportunity to be there for my son every morning and every evening while continuing to spend my days doing the work that I love.

a few of my favorite titles


I am blessed to have had the opportunity work with agencies across Minnesota
doing what I love.



A title I had no idea how much I wanted. Even though Logan said 'Dad' first, this is the title I am most proud of.



Married to my college cheerleading stunt partner since 2006 - we are cheerleaders in life and in love.



Only “Ash” to Troy and a few close family and friends, it’s a title reserved for those who have known me the longest.



Anyone-want-a-coffee? I will literally never pass up an opportunity for coffee.
