“Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep really to sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough.”

– William Saroyan & Ernest Hemingway

liz Ashby Benedetto

Liz Benedetto is a Graphic Designer & Photographer. Raised in Evanston, Illinois just outside of Chicago, where creativity and education are celebrated, her childhood home came equip with a dark room and a father who shared her passion for developing pictures; the adventure began at a young age. 

In 2008,  Ashby, Inc, was founded in Barrington, Illinois with the intent to collaborate with each client; to learn about what inspires them and help them visually craft their story. 

Her clients have included a large scale re-branding project for a highly regarded high school where she managed the entire project from inception, development and production to designing and managing brands for annual wine festivals to small scale design consultation work.

She is committed to staying current with all of the creative processes and technical tools that her industry offer. The quickly changing environment is something that Liz loves about her profession.

Liz serves as the Communication Chairperson for the Barrington 220 Educational Foundation Board. The Foundation is committed to enhancing programming that is offered to the Barrington 220 School District. Liz believes in the mission of the Foundation and is committed to serving the school district where her children attend school.

Liz welcomes each new project with enthusiasm and excitement. She is flattered when people approach her with ideas and the challenge to together craft effective visual experiences.

This Irish girl who married Italian boy is as stubborn as ever; she is constantly looking for projects that inspire & challenge her creatively.
