Hi, I’m Heather!

I’m a visual designer with a knack for thoughtful typography and design systems.

I have 3.5 years of work experience as a 3x Intern and Freelance Junior Designer for companies like NorthOne, Flipp, Universe (Live Nation & Ticketmaster), Koffler Art Gallery, York University, and Sheridan College.

I did my undergrad at York/Sheridan Design between 2014—2019.

I’d be happy to chat about full-time design opportunities, collaboration on select projects, or simply a hello!

Growth, Content Marketing Design—Current


Welcome to my portfolio :~) Right now, I work at a neobank called NorthOne! I design on the Growth & Content teams with a goal of helping small businesses owners across America. 

My responsibilities include designing ads across various ad networks (fun fact: I beat control twice in Q3), illustrating for SEO blog articles, and designing all the posts and stories you see on @northone.banking. Occasionally I’ll design email campaigns and print work too.

I work daily with art director and designer, Mike Zurek, as well as coworkers with VICE, Frank & Oak, and McKinsey backgrounds.

Undergrad Thesis—April 2019

Meet Me in the Middle

Meet Me In The Middle is the output of a year long thesis project at York/Sheridan Design. It won an ADCC award in the Book & Editorial category in 2019.

The publication holds a spotlight over words, thoughts, and imagery that may otherwise be overlooked or regarded as incomplete. It spans topics such as sexuality, mental health, and the banal, in attempts to recognize the process of the course over a conclusive whole. Contributers include essays from Sophie Helf and Courtney Hillier.

My thesis advisor was everyone’s favourite type designer, Paul Sych, who gave me the space and support to expand my own definition of design.

Sophie Helf’s!!!! essay, “From Cigarettes to Something Else.”

Personal Web Project—March 2020

Soft Words

On March 24, 2020, my family member was intubated for COVID-19. He, like many hardworking individuals, is a service worker; meaning that he had shown up to work every day to provide for himself and his family. 

On March 28, 2020, I launched Soft Words, a crowd-sourced online project. There were over 150 visitors and 23 contributions of support. 

At some point, I hope to publish a book with each of these submissions.
UI/UX Internship —Summer 2018

Universe, a division of TicketMaster & LiveNation

From May 2018-August 2018, I had the pleasure of interning on the product team at Universe. That summer, I was tasked with prototyping a mobile and desktop experience of a new reserved seating feature. I worked under an actual Design Superwoman, Shierya Aryev, who showed me how to usertest and leverage opportunities. 

I also spent my internship working alongside the Brand Designer at the time, Juan Beltran, and and Marketing Manager, Gabby Hague on landing pages and blog material.
