Heather Brooks
President
For as long as she can remember Heather has been a lover of color and pattern and a skilled problem solver. Design brought these two passions together and there has been no looking back.

 Currently in-house at a local nonprofit, Opportunity Partners, Heather spends her days designing print and digital materials to support the mission of advancing the quality of life for adults with disabilities.

Heather holds a BFA in graphic design from the University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire where she was encouraged to join AIGA as a student. 

In her free time, Heather is out enjoying all the wonderful places in the Twin Cities with her partner, family, friends and dogs, Paisley and Guthrie.
