Heco is a Chicago-based design studio that makes better user experiences and more interesting brands. We're big on prototyping, collaborating and trying to find inner peace. It’s our aim to make things that earn their spot in people’s lives.
JT Helms and Matt Cowen are Heco’s founding partners. JT is a Creative Director and designer who helps clients develop better brand identities, web experiences and interactive product designs. Matt is a Creative Director and writer who works across creative disciplines—from Product Design to UX to Strategy—to help clients develop stronger brands and better messages.
If you want a great-to-work-with design team to help create experiences people really enjoy, get in touch.
By integrating Design, UX and Copy at the beginning of the process, Heco turned around a beautiful website in record time, and created an experience where messaging and design work together to connect with all of our target audiences.
We are changing the way people invest in real estate, which makes marketing a real challenge. To get more investors our brand needs to build immediate trust. JT and Matt quickly learned our business and how our target thinks, and helped us clearly communicate what we do and why we do it better. Because of their work we now have a brand and website that has helped us achieve triple digit growth in the last 18 months.
We sent Heco 438 files of musings, half-starts and inspiration. They gathered the perspectives of seven people, including potential customers, and somehow (in just four weeks) they synthesized those competing ideas into a coherent vision for our brand. We're rushing to implement their recommendations fast enough to keep up with the compliments that we're getting as a result of their work. Plus, our team now has a common perspective on who we are, which has made working together even better.
