Ashley and her team were a breath of fresh air in helping our organization with a long overdue rebranding. Ace Creative never missed a beat in incorporating all of our thoughts and ideas into the creative brief process and translating that into a new look with tools that will help us achieve our goal to raise funds and awareness about our mission.

When we started the process of redesigning our website, I was quite overwhelmed with the process. Ashley provided an outline of steps along with a concise time-table which provided clear and realistic expectations. It was amazing to be part of the design process and to watch the seamless transition between Ashley and Irene (much like a successful relay team) as the website design unfolded. Ace Creative is a great organization and we are extremely pleased with the results.

Ace Creative designed a beautiful logo, brand identity, and a website for Simply Erinn’s Unisex Hair Salon. I was amazed at the initial brand concepts they came up with—it was as if they had known us for ages. They are very creative, efficient, professional, and all-around great people. Simply Erinn’s was desperate for a brand makeover and Ace Creative is exactly what we had been looking for.
