About the Owner. . .
My name is Caitlin Hecsh and I am a graphic designer and printer specializing in creating clear, dynamic communication through imagery and typography. I have been in the field for over17 years and I continue to love what I do because I am always pushing myself to learn more, do more and do something different with each and every project.
Looking back, it's not a big surprise that I found my way into this business, since from an early age I have been dedicated to the printed page. (Thank you to my fourth grade teacher, Mrs. Oliver!) For years, I’ve been known to read several books at one time – ask my husband! Really, there are books everywhere in my house and many conversations with my family and friends start or end with, “What are you reading?” This dedication results in an extreme attention to detail in all of my work. I am a self-taught designer and through experience I have learned to appreciate white space and unique, understated elegance over crammed text and difficult to read fonts.
I hold a degree from the University of Oregon in Planning, Public Policy and Management with an interest in community development. As part of my internship I became a resource specialist, gathering and creating a clearinghouse of information. After moving to New Mexico, I spent over 12 years working in the non-profit arena organizing and implementing programs, fundraising projects and events. As a volunteer I have been designing programs and posters for The Adobe Theater in Albuquerque’s North Valley for four years.
My shortest bio ever...
I was born in San Diego and arrived in New Mexico by way of Stockton and Sonora, California; Deadwood and Eugene, Oregon. It’s true that I put my finger on a map after graduation and I touched New Mexico (having vetoed anything further east). Now in New Mexico for over mphmmmm years, I'm married to a great guy (an awesome gardener and The Master Barbecuer), we celebrate our 20th anniversary this year.
