Our story

Our story

Family began in 2016 when Heidi founded HR Graphics. For two years, the company was a one-woman show until Tuomas joined the team in the fall of 2018. The latest additions to the group are Anna and Hanna, who started this fall.

Our creative family consists of diverse graphic design and IT specialists; our similar interests unite us at work and in our free time. We are open-minded and constantly excited to try something new and use it to grow as professionals.

We’re cartoon artists, illustrators, musicians, science fiction fans, gamers, photographers, artists.. and more?
