Heather Lins founded her eponymous surface and product design studio in 2008. Soon after, she entered a competition for up and coming designers held by the New York International Gift Fair, the A+: Young Designers Platform. She won one of three exhibit spaces and debuted my home textile collection at the nation’s largest gift fair.
Trained as a graphic designer, Lins takes a conceptual approach to textile design. From the typography of eye charts to scientific diagrams, she uses images that are easily recognized but unexpected in textiles.
Her work has appeared The New York Times, Better Homes and Gardens, GQ and Readymade and on influential design/shelter websites like Design-Milk.com, Swiss-miss.com, Dwell.com, Decor8blog.com and Apartmenttherapy.com and in graphic design magazines such as Print and How. She strives to make her work accessible, beautiful and modern.
Currently, she is experimenting with stationery and calendar design and looking for a design-savvy retailer/manufacturer to co-create eco-friendly home accessories.
