Hero Arts

Currently I am working for Hero Arts Inc. in Richmond, CA, as a graphic designer, and illustrator. Hero Arts is a rubber stamp company and specializes in clear stamps, woodblock stamps, paper dies, and other craft materials for card making. Our products are featured in stores such as Paper Source, Michaels, and Joann’s Fabrics and Crafts. I do a variety of projects here ranging from packaging design, to illustrating woodblock and clear stamp sets. I occasionally also make cards using the stamps I create, make packaging mock ups, and aid in the layout of catalogs.
