THANKS FOR TAKING THE TIME TO FIND OUT A LITTLE MORE ABOUT ME
SO, FIRST THING'S FIRST
WHO AM I?
Hey, I’m Heather, I create visual identities for small business owners with a story to tell, helping them step out of the digital shadows and into the modern, aesthetic light they know they own.
But if you want to know a little more about ME, me, what lurks beyond the tagline and "elevator pitch" *shudder*, me, then we better start with the small talk.
SO, SECOND THING'S SECOND
THE LOOOONGER VERSION
Alright, so, hey, hello, what's up, bonjour 👋
Let's start at the beginning, I'm a Glaswegian (born in Glasgow, Bonnie Scotland for any non-UK readers), currently living in Nice, France.
Before starting Lucky Fig, I was a private chef (segway, right?!). I was lucky enough to spend winters in the French Alps, and summers on the Riviera and other lovely locations. I built up my business, created a successful website that brought in work, wrote recipes, articles, delved into food photography, and generally just developed a passion for food, writing & content creation. Then, after all that time living out of a suitcase, all the late nights cooking dinner and ever-changing dietary requirements , I decided to hang up my chef apron and take my love for creative work online.
Enter, graphic design. A lot of learning, courses, and a few internships.
Ok, so, it's not quite a creative studio (it's just me!) but here at Lucky Fig I proudly offer multiple design & content creation services such as branding packages, digital illustration, logo design, business card design and branded GIF's & more. I also have an online shop selling my illustrations as prints and soon to be other products.
I love to help other entrepreneurs and small businesses get their visual identity on point, so they step back and think, yeah... this is my brand, and my customers are going to love it!
I do the work I do now because I love it, it's a dream job.
When I'm not working, you can find me cooking, eating, hula-hooping, watching cat videos, dreaming of the day I'll own a cat, or studying French (not really, but that's what I SHOULD be doing 🙄)

AND THIRD THING'S LAST
JUST FOR FUN
Some random quick-fire questions I found on the internetz just for fun
Texting or talking?
Texting, I can be kinda introverted and don't enjoy phone calls.
Favourite day of the week?
Hmm.. probably Sunday, I love going back to bed with a coffee and reading for a bit, then lounging around watching Sunday morning TV and cooking programmes, Homes Under the Hammer etc.
Glasgow, or maybe Sydney.
Nickname your parents used to call you?
Herbie, still do
Last song you downloaded?
Album: In a Space Outta Sound
Artist: Nightmares On Wax
Favourite radio station
BBC Radio 6 forever
Would you rather be able to speak every language in the world or be able to talk to animals?
Oh man.. every language in the world. I'm learning French just now and know how hard it is, I'd love a hack.
How long does it take you to get ready?
For a regular day <10 mins, for a night out maybe an hour or two.
Invisibility or super strength?
Super strength, invisibility is weird
I can kinda juggle?
