Heidi Leech Craft & Design

Hello.

I’m a graphic designer and artist, and I live in Washington, DC, with Lily Tina the cat.

Find samples of my work in my portfolio—I have set up a few project case studies on Behance, and other smaller pieces on Dribbble. There are more portfolio pieces coming! Find out more about my work history, education, awards and other things, on my non-fancy resume/CV (PDF) or on LinkedIn.

Notes & Thoughts

Since 2011, I’ve worked as a web designer and accessibility specialist in government contracting and information technology. In hindsight, I realize that IT is a strange place for a graphic designer, unless the management somehow knows about and appreciates visual design and the value of it, and has integrated design into their workflow.

I’m excited about design and accessibilty in general. I will talk your ear off about typography and white space/margins, so don’t get me started.

I like to learn new things and keep growing, without losing sight of the fundamentals. I haven’t had the opportunity to learn Sketch, and would like to. As well, I'd like to get more comfortable working with web fonts and possibly quit avoiding CSS frameworks. And dive back into the nitty gritty of Illustrator. I know the basics, but also know there is so much more.
