About Heather Zayne

Overview

Heather is a Detroit based designer with over 20 years experience. She’s worked on a variety in-house brands ranging from small non-profits to large global companies with ambitious goals. She has a unique talent at seeing the big picture potential in a product or brand and then bringing it to life.

Each company Heather has worked for has carried a strong mission behind the work—ranging from dream fulfillment, to education. She tries to keep that same ethos for doing good in her personal life as well. She strongly believes that design and storytelling is a powerful medium to create change.

Heather is comfortable working on a range of projects from designing websites and apps to collaborating on set with a production crew. Whether she’s behind the camera, illustrating on paper, or crafting prototypes on her laptop, Heather always brings a quality of work and creativity that is hard to match.

Outside of work Heather finds inspiration through motorcycling, urban exploring, DIY home decor, limestone sculpture creation, and traveling with her two little boys. Her hunger and curiosity for life drives her to experience everything and document all that it has to offer. This thirst for life is evident in all of her work. Heather doesn’t find a strong line between creativity, work, and play.
