Hello, I'm Heather Gofstein, an accomplished art director and designer from New Jersey with expertise in print, digital, animation, and pop-culture trivia. I found my calling as a graphic designer back in middle school, when I cared more about my Neopets' homepage than homework. Proudly a self-taught Corel PaintShop Pro master (kidding)! Since then, I have expanded upon my skills and have advanced knowledge in Adobe Illustrator, InDesign, After Effects, Photoshop, HubSpot, WordPress, Sprout Social, Hootsuite, and BEE.
With 6 years at a boutique advertising agency, I'm experienced at working in a fast-paced environment, both independently and collaboratively. In recent years I've established my career as a freelance designer, working with a range of clients including startup companies, local businesses, as well as global brands.
My portfolio showcases versatility, attention to detail, strong typography, and an overall ability to create work that resonates with an audience.
Aside from design, my greatest passion is for animals. I'm a volunteer counselor for a rat rescue group where I work with prospective adopters to ensure they are well-educated on proper care of the animals. In addition to that, I help the community manage local cat colonies through TNR. The trap-neuter-release program includes fixing and vaccinating the feral and stray cats. I'm a proud fur mom of two: my tripawd cat, Ruby and her sister, Dottie.
