We do our best to give you great talks, inspiring spaces, and tasty coffee every month, but the best part of CreativeMornings is the people. So we’re showcasing a few of the faces of CMSF, and you could be next!


What’s your day job?

I’m a digital designer at Ready State, a small creative marketing agency here in SF.

What’s your favorite breakfast food?

Lately it’s been muesli with almond milk, fresh berries and a drizzle of honey.

Where’s a place you’d stop on a free afternoon in the city?

Ocean Beach! But first I’d swing by the apartment to pick up my dog so he can join in on the fun.

What’s one thing you’ve been inspired by lately?

While looking for an illustrator to collaborate with for a recent project, I stumbled upon Women Who Draw, an open directory of female illustrators that spotlights women of color, LBTQ+, and other minority groups. It’s a great professional resource and an absolute joy to browse through.

Share with us how you relieve anxiety?

Fresh air and exercise always helps me relax and clear my head, so I ride my bike a lot. Preferably where there’s a view and no traffic.

Where can people find out more about you (Twitter, Instagram, or website)?

Follow me on Instagram (@aylikelley) for pics of places I’ve been and things my dog does.
