2023 Front Row Representative: Ashleigh Templeton

I am Ashleigh Jemma Templeton, I am working towards my Bachelors Degree in Creative Brand Communications. Art and design is a massive part of who I am, I have upskilled myself in various creative mediums such as branding, ad campaigns, print, illustration, web design and a host of other creative mediums. I am constantly in the search of learning and working towards my personal growth.

What is your field of study?
I am currently in my third year of studying for a Bachelor’s degree in Creative Brand Communications. Art Direction is my main focus within my studies, it allows me the versatility of learning all that goes into the advertising scene.

What do you hope to achieve through the IAB Front Row?
This program has been a game-changer for me, enabling me to explore new horizons and reach places I wouldn’t typically venture into. The IAB program has taught me more than any other lesson when it comes to the industry I want to be a part of one day. There’s a quote that I really like “Tell me and I may forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I’ll learn.” by Benjamin Franklin. This perfectly sums up my time with IAB so far. I’ve transcended my comfort zone, unlocking untapped potential and embarking on exciting journeys that were once beyond my reach. It’s a true catalyst for personal growth and exploration.
