HI, I’M ANDREW HEATON.

I’M A DESIGNER AND WRITER FOCUSED ON USER EXPERIENCE LIVING IN THE DETROIT AREA.

I BELIEVE DESIGN AND TECHNOLOGY CAN CHANGE THE WAY WE COMMUNICATE AND UNDERSTAND SOCIETY, CULTURE AND THE WORLD AROUND US.

I DESIGN THINGS TO MAKE PEOPLE’S LIVES EASIER AND MORE INTERESTING, AND I WRITE AND PUBLISH BOOKS ABOUT THE WAY I WORK TO HELP OTHER DESIGNERS ADVANCE.


I LOVE WHAT I DO.
