Black Ink on Silver Tee
Design by Heather Barnes and Shawn Williams
Heather Barnes and Shawn Williams are a recently married husband and wife creative duo. Shawn is a graphic designer, photographer, videographer, and illustrator, specializing in social content creation for a wide range of clients. Shawn has been a longtime fan of graphic novels, and has even written, illustrated, and self-published his own. When he’s not doing his day job, he’s creating a tongue-in-cheek social series of meditation videos, called Medita-Shawn(s).
Heather is a Creative Director (art director), sometimes writer, photoshopper, designer, occasional joke lander, and big thinker with over 17 years in the marketing biz – including advertising and PR. Her work has earned awards and driven engagement on brands like Modelo, Kim Crawford, Corona Premier, Ballast Point, Kraft, KFC, and McDonalds to name a few. In her spare time Heather is always searching for the perfect taco and queso dip. She met Shawn when she was an ADDY judge, and coincidentally had to judge some of his designs.
A Wisconsinite for four decades, Shawn is moving to Chicago to be with his new bride (and co-creator of several Give A Shi*t designs) Heather Barnes-Williams this winter, where he will be forced to eat queso dip for eternity.
