A Freelancer’s Mission

I am passionate about being independent. My favorite clients are the fellow freelancers, entrepreneurs, independent thinkers, doers and helpers. My mission is to help you connect with your audience on a more personal and human level. Making you feel confident in developing marketing strategies, organizing campaigns and growing your business knowing that your creative will be completed on time, within budget and without compromising creativity.

Twisted Threads Tie Dye and Vegan Soap by Ashlee Nadolinkski

I commissioned Heather to create some designs for my soap and tie dye business. I had no clue what I wanted. She looked through my products, and came up with 3 stunningly beautiful designs that I cant wait to use! She literally gave me what I wanted, when I didn’t even know what I wanted.
I give her 6 stars out of 5. She earned that extra star. I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone, for both photography AND design.

Mary Grace Wallace, Writefully His“When I received the opportunity to be the keynote speaker at the women’s luncheon I immediately reached out to Heather to help me pull in graphics, photographs and our WH video. I continue to use this presentation every time a speaking engagement arises. As a young professional, having this type of product to bring to the table not only allows for a boost in confidence but keeps my focus on promoting my passion the entire time.”

Nancy-Faulkner-Pink-Dogwood“Why did I wait so long? After many months of indecision and DIY design, I finally hired an incredibly talented professional to rework my logo + branding.
