Hi.  My name is Lacey Hanchak.  I am a self-taught graphic designer, a serial DIY house renovator, wife, and mom of three in a home just west of Chicago.  I believe in the principle that good design is as little design as possible. Don't overwork it and don't overthink it.  Most importantly, whether at work or home, design should be fun, thoughtful, but never taken too seriously. 

Since 2009, I have been working with small to mid-sized businesses who all say the same thing.  They want their brand to have the look and feel of a pricey design firm without the price tag.  They want to elevate their brand and print collateral and ascend above their competition, but don't know where to go to do it. That's how Ascend Design Co. came to life. 

I have over 18 years experience creating print and digital design, including logo design, corporate brand identity, flyers, brochures, postcards, catalogs and more.

If you have a project you need help with, please email me and we'll get the conversation started!
