Ashton Winkworth was born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa. She graduated from Stellenbosch Academy of Design and Photography in 2016 with a Bachelors of Arts in Visual Communication. Ashton majored in Graphic Design – a practically driven course which has prepared her for a career as a creative and conceptually driven designer.
Having moved from a small studio in scenic Stellenbosch to bustling Bree street to join Luxury Branding, she brings with her a portfolio of both print and digital work. Ashton is particularly passionate about branding and packaging. Focusing on her creative and conceptual abilities, Ashton creates work that is refined, innovative and exciting.
She loves the diversity that lies behind graphic design and the constant learnings, experiences and opportunities that it offers. Ashton sees design is an in-depth process – a way of thinking and creating a unique brand experience.
During her degree, Ashton was a finalist in the IPSA student Goldpack awards, as well as the Loeries in the student category for collateral design direct and promotional mail. She was also part of a creative team that recently won a silver award at the Rotolabel wine label design awards in Stellenbosch.
