Hi, I’m Heather.
My obsession with designing visual media started in 2002 when I designed my first page layout. I’ve been learning new skills, exploring new techniques, and increasing my knowledge about effective graphic design methods ever since.
After graduating with a degree in graphic design, I spent the first four years of my career in the marketing department of a fast-paced start up company as their in-house designer. I learned so many applicable skills in this role, including the basics of web design.
After that, I did freelance design work for seven years. This was an incredibly valuable time in my career. I got a glimpse of the inner workings of a variety of industries. I applied my print-focused design education to the world of digital design. Never satisfied with “out-of-the-box” solutions, I became a WordPress developer in order to see my visions come to life, across desktop and mobile devices. I had to constantly sharpen my skills, seek out answers when I had none, and work effectively with a variety of personalities.
My side project, a lifestyle blog focused on living a creative life with little ones, gave me first-hand experience in the rapidly growing industry of social media. I learned how to market effectively and genuinely in this nuanced, and ever-changing space.
I’d love to talk to you about your design project. Please send me an email with some specifics and I’ll be in touch!
