My name is Heather Hampton and I'm a journalist gone graphic designer. Simply put, I have a BA in Journalism and then decided to make a career switch to graphic design.

I grew up in Southern California and attended California State University Fullerton from where I graduated in 2003.

I then spent a few years as a journalist working for various newspapers, magazines and companies in California.

I soon began to realize that I had a love for design and I decided to go back to school and pursue a career in graphic design with the intentions of using my journalism skills for copywriting for my graphic design projects.

I recently moved to Mississippi and work as a designer for Red Bud Supply and freelance designer for Young Sanford Marketing and Media Services.
