Our Logo

ASLIA is proud to recognize the design talent of Kayla Bradford. Kayla's design for ASLIA is representative of a community of individuals across Alberta with international affiliations. Retrospective to our previous logo, blue hues were incorporated giving the logo a sense of tradition.


Born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta, Kayla graduated from The Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) in 2007 with a Certificate of Graphic Sign Arts. Since then she has put her talents to use as a freelance graphic designer. She is also actively involved with Edmonton Association of the Deaf (EAD), Alberta Deaf Sports Association (ADSA), and the Alberta Association of the Deaf (AAD).


Kayla can be contacted via email: kaylambrad@gmail.com for design requests.
