Ashli Hughes is Flight Path Creative ATX


Originally from Oklahoma City, OK, I graduated with a BA in English Literature from Oklahoma State University.  I got my start in marketing when I was living in Austin, TX back in 2005.  I had a couple of radio shows on a KOOP 91.7FM, and soon after started working as a grassroots marketer for record labels. I was a street team promoter for Beggar's Group: 4AD, Rough Trade, Matador, XL recordings, and more.  


As part of that work, I also created social media campaigns for the Street Syndicate and promoted musicians and comedians.  It was a ton of fun, and that momentum took me out to Los Angeles, in 2007,  where I would work my way up as the website/social media manager for the Fonda Theater, in Hollywood, CA.  I loved running the social media for the venue, creating newsletters and getting the word out.  Connecting people to the music and the experience was what I lived for.  

However, after a few years in Los Angeles, it was time to migrate up to the Pacific NW.  Once I got there, in 2010, I started taking graphic/web design classes, perfecting my skills, and eventually took a job with the Rheinlander and Gustav's restaurants as the Marketing Coordinator.  It was a great learning experience and by 2015 it was time to venture into the world of freelance marketing. I started Cascade Creative PDX, and began a new, exciting chapter being my own boss, and working on my small biz dream.


In December 2017, I relocated back to Austin, TX and re-branded Cascade Creative to Flight Path Creative. I'm excited to be on my old stomping grounds again! I missed the music and the food! I'm looking for new Austin clients, and would love to hear about your small business and how I can help. 

Local business is the flavor and soul of a city. I consider it an honor and a privilege to help small business owners with their marketing needs everyday. Helping their entrepreneurial spirit thrive in today's corporate America is what drives me the most.  If you're looking to create more awareness of your brand, please shoot me an email. I look forward to hearing about your project!
