HEIDI MICHELE   |  Designer


I am a dread head with a gypsy soul. I’m a designer, artist, dreamer and maker of things. 

I attended the University of Idaho and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts with an emphasis in Graphic Design.

Post graduation I got a graphic design job in Moab, Utah designing souvenir pins and patches for the national parks. I currently do freelance product development and have my own line of trucker hats, earrings, tapestries, pins, patches and buttons.

Fun Fact: I grew up in the Alaskan bush. MY dad was a gold miner. my siblings and I had tundra forts instead of tree forts.
