“Statistically, the probability of any one of us being here is so small that the mere fact of our existence should keep us all in a state of contented dazzlement.”

About Me

Hi! My name is Ashley Farrand, and I am a completely independent freelance brand designer, graphic designer, and front-end developer. I am tremendously passionate about the future of web design and development.

Plus, I have over five years of experience in freelancing professionally in this field, in addition to a lifetime’s amount of serious study about these subjects in my off time. If you’re looking for someone with a lot of knowledge and excitement, you’ve come to the right place.




  • I would say that I am extremely fluent in the languages of HTML and CSS. I am also getting better each day with Javascript/Jquery and PHP. I’m always interested in learning as much as possible.
  • I am completely self taught and have the ambition and dedication that comes with such a background, as well as being able to find joy in my work.
  • My goal is to create brands and websites that readily and easily communicate with your customer base. Customer interaction goes hand in hand with successful products. Ideally, every project I ever work on will be engaging and long lasting in its influence.
  • My main goal in my creative process is marrying complex and challenging ideas with easy to use interfaces. I want to do a lot of things while making things easy as possible for people.
  • I’ll work with you a lot during the process to make sure your goals and wishes are met.
  • All I need from you is a proper budget for the project and the freedom to inject worthwhile improvements to give the project life.
  • Currently, I live in Manchester, New Hampshire, so I’m close to the mountains and ocean. I also have two cats and two akitas, and I love them a lot.
  • I also fill my free time with hiking, urban exploration, photography, and animal care.
  • I am incredibly easy to work with and friendly, so any questions beyond what I have already laid out are welcome and appreciated.



  • I make music sometimes and here is my first music video made with the Lumen video synth. Super exciting to me! :))) ,
