About Me

I have been a graphic designer/communications specialist since 1968, working on staff for national publications, commercial agencies serving the high-tech and media fields, as well as running my own small design firm, HeiresInc. My abilities and experience are far-ranging. I have all the necessary skills to see a given project from first idea through conceptual development and design to final product. I am well-versed in all the software programs that are required to successfully complete projects.
