Ashley Heins - Staff Artist
Biography: Ashley is from Tinley Park, Illinois. At a young age, she developed a passion for art which eventually lead to her decision to pursue a degree in Visual Communications. Before college, Ashley was determined to pursue a career in art, but was not sure how to create a viable career. After learning that graphic design was a very diverse and influential field in the art community, her path was set. Art Northern Illinois University, Ashley takes graphic design, interaction design, typography and other art courses to develop skills as a designer. She is also studying to obtain a certificate in Interactive Marketing, which will aid her design skills. Ashley has been working as a graphic designer for multiple campus offices at NIU for the past three years and was thrilled to become a part of the Armor team in late 2017. She loves doing work for clients and getting to see her designs come to life. When she isn't parked in front of a computer screen, waist deep in one of her many design programs, Ashley loves reading, playing video games, and spending time with her boyfriend and two little lizards (her Leopard Gecko and baby Chinese Water Dragon are her four-legged children!). Being a retired ballet and poms dancer, her absolute favorite new pass time, though, is playing Just Dance 2018 on her Nintendo Switch! Ashley is excited to learn more about Armor Tech's diverse clientele and be able to apply her skills at an awesome new job.
