HearSay with Kewley and Bart, HS Dog Contributors

We love to talk to our HS family about what they bring to the workplace.

HearSay with Jordan – Graphic Designer

To spend any time with talented HS designer Jordan Biehn is to recognize he is a man who primarily lets his work do the talking. And though of fewer words, this “stand up” guy took the time to expand on his many talents and interests. When did you first consider a career in design?
