Hi there,
I'm Ashley.

I'm the designer, speaker, and teacher behind Henhouse Design

I'm Ashley Morgan (formerly Bennett), and Henhouse Design Co. is the online home for my work and thoughts. After graduating in 2011 from UNC-Chapel Hill (go heels!), I began working as a full time designer for NMC. There, I create custom websites, mobile apps, and brands for universities, non-profits, political campaigns, law firms, and businesses of all sizes. 

I'm currently living and working in Charlotte, NC. I teach pop-up classes on branding and Adobe Illustrator, co-organize a monthly web design meetup, and help run the quarterly web conference, FusionConf

When I’m not designing, you'll find me exploring the neighborhood with my husband by bike, working out in my garden, playing with my two Italian Greyhounds, Bella and Miley, or tending to my growing flock of chickens
