My name is Heather and I’m a graphic designer from Raleigh, North Carolina. I offer freelance graphic design services in digital & print design but offer a variety of services. Graphic Design has been a passion of mine since college and to this day it has been a big part of my life both personal and professional.
In 2005 I received my Bachelor of Science in Graphic Communications from Minnesota State University Moorhead with a digital design emphasis. I’ve worked professionally for 10 years and freelanced since 2011. If you would like to see a complete resume then feel free to shoot me a message.
How much do you charge?
My rate is $55 per hour. I’m also open to charging at a flat rate if this is easier for you but we would have to discuss the complexity of the project and the actual design concept itself.
What is your average turn around?
In most cases, I can provide you a soft proof within 2-3 days. But, this can be discussed upon evaluation of the project. I communicate often as needed and will respond as quickly as I can to any questions you may have.
What are your qualifications?

Do you only work with local clients?
Most of my clients are local but i’ve worked with clients from all over the country. I’ve even worked with a couple international clients.
How would you describe your design style?
I consider my design style unique, modern and clean. It’s important to create a memorable brand…not just a picture on a page. I like to propose different options whether I’m brainstorming ideas for logos or designing a new brand identity, ultimately it’s what the client is happy with.
What inspires you to be a graphic designer?
The most rewarding aspect of this business is seeing my published works. I can look back and remark…I did that. Graphic design is never a standstill and you can be as creative as you want to be. This inspires me to keep going.
