Inside The Studio

Here at The Studio, we love to tell stories — and we do it with every package, poster and logo we design. From witty to poetic, elegant to exuberant, our work creates a visual language that expresses the unique truths of our clients.  

We partner with companies large and small on a variety of projects, including brand identity, visual palettes, packaging, collateral and information displays.

The Studio is the home of Ashlie Benton, a graphic designer and creative director, who has spent nearly two decades helping clients bring their brand stories to life. In addition to working directly with clients, she has plied her talents for Landor Associates, Pentagram Design and CKS Group, as well as for a number of boutique studios.

Ashlie was born and raised in the San Francisco art world as the daughter of prominent sculptor Fletcher Benton. She received her BFA from the California College of the Arts and later attended UC Berkeley for Advanced Painting. Along with being a graphic designer, she is also an artist. Her oils, mixed media and printmaking have been shown in numerous select juried and group exhibitions.
