Hello, my name is Ashlye Kaczmarek and I’m a Producer and Game Designer. I graduated from Bradley University in May of 2020 with a Bachelor's Degree in Game Design and a minor in Entrepreneurial and Innovation. During my time at Bradley, I also received an Entrepreneurial Scholar for my own in my company AshuriiYuki Productions LLC.
I am fully self-employed, working for my company Ashuriiyuki Productions out of my studio. There I create a variety of products from the merchandise of my artwork to doing logo design for local businesses. Below you can see a small portfolio of my work for myself and my clients. At AshuriiYuki Productions, I am in every facet of the business. I take care of designing products, marketing them on social media, traveling to makers' markets to sell, and even taking care of my accounting and taxes.
I am an avid gamer, it has been a passion of mine since I was young. It is actually what drove me to want to work in the games industry, specifically World of Warcraft. I fell in love with the lore, the world development, and how the game even after 15 years keeps dragging me back even if I try to get away. I loved gaming so much that I wanted to share that love with other people and this lead me to Twitch.
I have been streaming on Twitch since June of 2020, I started due to the pandemic as many people did. I wanted to bring something a little different to my channel than most people though. I wanted to take what I had learned in university about Game Design and give viewers an inside into the design of their favorite games. The how and the why things are the way they are. It became very interesting and helped my community get into games and start understanding their mechanics. People began requesting I play games and delve into their design so that they could better understand the products that they loved.
