Employee Spotlight: Alison Hayes, Associate Art Director

Every month, we turn the spotlight on one of the team members
responsible for bringing our industry-leading products and services
to life. This month, meet Alison Hayes, Associate Art Director.

What’s your role at HEBS Digital and what do you do?

I am the Associate Art Director. I oversee the marketing
designs, as well as facilitate client website designs from the
kick-off call to designing client websites.

What did you do before working at HEBS Digital?

Prior to HEBS Digital, I worked for Penguin Group (now Penguin
Random House) designing advertising and promotional material for
the book imprints Penguin and Viking.

What’s your favorite part about your job?

I love when I can sit and focus on designing something
beautiful. There’s nothing like getting in the zone and being
unaware of how many hours have passed and having something new and
fresh as the final product.

What’s your favorite destination you’ve been to before, and
why?

I loved my honeymoon to the Maldives. It was truly a
once-in-a-lifetime vacation. We traveled all on points (shameless
RewardStock plug!). We
flew first-class on Etihad, which made the long travel feel like an
actual part of the vacation. We also took a water plane and landed
at our hotel’s private island. We stayed in an over-the-water hut
and could see fish swimming below us from our glass floor. We also
got to swim with whale sharks (think more friendly whale, not a
shark at all) and that was really a highlight. We dined in an
underwater restaurant surrounded by the ocean. Global warming is
causing the water levels to rise and there are theories that the
Maldives will be flooded this century, so I’m glad we went when
we did!

What’s an essential item you can’t travel without?

I have a fear of being hungry, so I always pack lots of snacks.
What if the plane is grounded for two hours and they don’t feed
me? What if I get to a country and all of the restaurants are
closed at the time I get famished? I’m always prepared with a
granola bar or trail mix!
