Heather is a pleasure to work with. Her calm and unruffled manner are an asset in working in high stress situations. Besides being extremely creative, she has a great work ethic, is very detail oriented and has amazing follow through. She is a well-rounded art director that "gets" marketing in the publishing industry and it's demands.
Heather is a devoted designer who is committed to seeing a job through from concept to completion. She is extremely professional, on time and always willing to put in the extra effort. Her excellent design skills have proven her to be a true talent in the creative arts field.
Heather is a true conceptual creative thinker with impeccable taste and the sort of classic old school design sensibility (form, space, function—kerning!) that is becoming more rare these days. She doesn't decorate; she communicates. Her passion and dedication to her work is contagious and she elevates the level of work in her colleagues. While she is a creative thinker, she is also extremely detail-oriented and a wonder at setting up systems and managing projects. This combination makes her invaluable to employers and clients alike.
Heather proved herself to be an extremely talented designer and art director. Her skill set is top-notch and she continually strives to improve herself. Her ideas are well thought-out and beautifully executed – a very smart designer. She works well with others, gives good direction and has a generous personality. In short, a pleasure. I hope we cross paths again.
