Art Direction. Design. Print. Web.

Hello! I'm Heather Zayne, a Detroit-based artist with an extensive and diverse background in art direction, print advertising, web design & development, branding and photography for all business sizes. I wear so many hats that I can't even list them in this short paragraph.

Creatively dedicated towards perfection of design thinking.

Who Am I?

I'm a friendly & outgoing individual who loves big group projects. I'm also known as the fastest working designer in Michigan. I've won 2 awards for quickest turnaround.

Education: I hold a 2005 BFA with High Honors from the College for Creative Studies.

Background: My father owned his own design and printing company in the 80’s & 90's and from early childhood I was raised in the creative industry.

Hobbies: I am consistently working on graphic & web design, vector illustration, photography, collage, sculpture, book making, and screen printing. In my free time I challenge myself with surreal and complex creative outlets.

Work Ethic: I'm always looking for new & amazing ways to be more efficient. I know every shortcut command for Adobe Suite software. I work faster and more efficiently than most. I always meet project deadlines with time to spare and my accuracy, as well as client-expectation-psychic-abilities, are near alarming. I am highly organized, an obsessive multitasker and a list-maker.
