Nathaniel Winter-Hebert runs his studio Winter-Hébert (with wife Lana), from the wilds of rural Quebec, where it’s not uncommon to see deer walking past his window on any given workday.
‘Like most aspiring designers, I did my time at several Toronto agencies, putting in long hours as dues in my climb from junior designer to creative director. After several years, I decided that I wanted to work for myself, taking the leap towards creative independence with projects that inspired me, so I packed up my Toronto apartment and headed for the hills, quite literally.’
Nathaniel now works within the arts and culture sector with a focus on graphic design, editorial, visual identities, typography and all things print related. His greatest inspiration is drawn from Modernism, with an emphasis on typography, hierarchy, and concise, effective composition, but he still flirts with the vast wealth of design history for lost ideas and novel approaches.
When he’s not chopping wood or canoeing to the grocery store, Nathaniel can be found with his nose buried in old type specimens whilst his sparrow children sit upon his shoulders.
