Biography

Using both creative and analytical abilities as a civic designer, Ashley Moon is committed to transforming collaboration between government, businesses, and communities to provide human-centered, equitable public services through design and justice. 

Ashley has worked with small and large communities across Montana to improve visual communication and design-based strategies. She previously worked as a Media Specialist for the Montana Department of Labor & Industry (DLI). As a designer for DLI, Ashley established comprehensive brand standards, improved program processes, and implemented design strategies for the department and state programs such as Montana Registered Apprenticeship, Job Service offices, Jobs for Montana’s Graduates youth program, along with special projects for the Governor’s Office including the Main Street Montana Project, State Workforce Innovation Board, HELP-Link Medicaid expansion, and the Equal Pay for Equal Work Montana Taskforce. Before joining Stamps, Ashley served as Senior Designer and Production Coordinator for Windfall, Inc., a design and marketing agency in Montana, working on a variety of projects related to tourism across five regions in the state, nonprofit organizations, and local businesses.

Ashley has actively sought out ways to improve government processes through design. She previously interned for the Montana Department of Commerce – Housing Division (Section 8), where she reorganized and processed paper applications, finding the process inefficient. This experience informed her graphic design thesis work, “Functional Forms,” at Montana State University, where she proposed to redesign Montana public assistance forms as one way to use design to improve government processes.

Most recently, Ashley has joined a “Salk Team” with Free the Vaccine for COVID-19: Global Advocacy Innovation Labs to co-create and test creative methods to ensure that the COVID-19 vaccine is publicly-funded, free, and accessible to all upon delivery.

During her time at Stamps, she has explored new methods of design research, practice, and communication in a collaborative environment. She believes the skills acquired through the MDes program have the power to change the narrative of elected officials, leaders, individuals, and communities and address social justice issues.
