Heather Cranston - Lesniewski
Heather is a Graphic Designer and Illustrator (and beekeeper!) in Thunder Bay, Ontario. She describes herself as an artist first and a designer second. However, it was during her time painting murals in Winnipeg, that she developed a healthy interest in typography and the fundamentals of design – a watershed moment which ultimately lead her to pursue her talents in that special place where art and commerce intersect – graphic design. After completing her schooling in Manitoba, she worked at one of the largest advertising agencies in western Canada – before returning home to Thunder Bay in 2008 to work at a local design studio.
With a tireless creative mind, an innate aptitude for design, and a powerful sense of curiosity, Heather has employed her talents on a wide variety of projects for some of the City’s biggest business and organizations. She never passes up an opportunity to flex her artistic muscles in her spare time, be it life drawing, or letterpress. Most recently Heather instructed the 3rd and 4th year print making classes at Lakehead University. Armed with an eye for type, a rustic spirit, and a curiosity for anything vintage - you can win her over with anything printed pre-1960.
