The Hero[Series] is a Veteran-and-designer collaboration. Creating meaningful design that represents each Veteran’s story and message.

Their design is produced into American-made products accompanied with the purpose behind it in order to enable the community to support each Veteran and help further share their story with those around them.

"Be Bold"

After years of feeling subdued, Army Veteran Judith Burger does not have the time or energy to remain silent. Fiercely against apathy, Judith encourages others to speak their truth by being bold.

"Guiding Ethos"

In her 26 years of service, Monique Brown is as dedicated to the mission, community, & Warrior Ethos of the Army as anyone could be. Combining this commitment to the importance of spirituality that provides her positivity, strength, & guidance, Monique has devoted her life to helping others through love.


Inspired by the Haitian flag and its message of strength in unity, the Kintsugi art of repairing broken pottery with gold, and the intent of dazzle camouflage to stand out rather than blend in, U.S. Navy Veteran Darrel Charles and graphic designer Brittany Ballinger collaborated to create the design “L’Union.”


U.S. Navy Veteran Bob Williams – AKA “Willard” — and graphic designer Andrew Barton collaborated to create “Chase,” an illustrative depiction of Bob’s fun-loving and adventurous nature.

"Love Like This"

U.S. Army Veteran Bobby Carrasquillo and graphic designer Scott Brinkley collaborated to create “Love Like This,” a creative depiction of the enduring bond and brotherhood Bobby experienced while serving two tours in Iraq.

After several years of partnering veterans with designers locally in Grand Rapids, MI, [HAS HEART] was determined to create a greater impact throughout the US. [HAS HEART] was on the road from 2017-2019, taking its HERO[series] project concept across the country, partnering a veteran with a designer in every state.

Thus far, the project has reached 39 states, completed 41 projects, has worked with 50 veterans and 123 creatives, and has launched 15 designs. By 2025, [HAS HEART] hopes to visit the remaining 11 states.
