What People Are Saying…
“We really have enjoyed working with Heather. She is so easy to work with and always exceeds expectations delivering quality, on time work.s.“
“Heather is a very knowledgeable and creative layout and graphic designer. Heather did a tremendous job on the layout and design of two large-scale projects, as well as designing great covers and graphics. She is efficient and professional, and her value is tremendous!“
“Great ideas. Attentive to detail and deadlines. Super organized. Smart AND talented. I hired Heather to envision and complete designs for social marketing campaigns directed to student audiences at UM Her pieces were ones that students noticed, liked, and talked about. She made my life very easy with prompt and creative design ideas, excellent product, and an overall work ethic that contributed greatly to both our initiatives and to our team. She advised us about the layouts and designs that would be best for our content, and created them to do just that. She guessed what we needed and wanted before I was even able to articulate it. It was a joy to supervise her (and she didn’t need much supervision). I’d hire Heather again in a moment–and you will be lucky if you can do so too.“
