A GRAPHIC DESIGNER, MOTHER, LOVER OF TYPE AND PASSIONATE DIY'ER.

 

I was born to be a graphic designer and discovered this at a young age when I started branding my own snow-sports line in 7th grade. From there I went to a high school vocational center for “visual communications” where I won state awards, designed and printed t-shirts and learned how to use a press. This creativity springboarded my passion for design, illustration and user
experience design.

 

I attended Ferris State University where I honed and tweaked my design skills. I have had the privilege of working in several places in the US and I am now based in the Raleigh - Durham area of North Carolina.

 

Besides my passion for branding and aesthetic design and functionality, I am a full time mother, flea market DIY’er, chai latte aficionado, amateur art collector and outdoors enthusiast.  

-  in a nutshell  -

Heather Bunker is a freelance branding strategist and graphic designer based in Raleigh, North Carolina specializing in logo design and branding.
