behind the scenes
CHRISTINE LOO | founder + designer
I have always loved being creative. I graduated from the Art Institute of California – Orange County with a Bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design. The education I received there honed my design and conceptualization skills, and cultivated my love for typography and color. After graduating, I designed collateral, packaging, and web media in various in-house marketing departments.
Six years later and after many, many months of tossing ideas around with my lovely husband, Heritage+Joy was born. I have always loved stationery because of its intent to communicate between individuals. I love working with the people behind each design, and especially seeing their faces light up at retelling their own story! There is definitely much joy in partaking in even a tiny part of each person’s unique heritage. More so than that, there is ultimate joy in knowing that the Word of God is my heritage forever.
a passion for people
At the heart of Heritage+Joy also lies a compassion for people around the world who are poor, sick, and suffering. There is a yearning to share the good news of the Gospel of Christ with those who are hurting from natural disasters, war, disease, and famine. Acting upon this desire, Heritage+Joy donates a percentage of all proceeds to Samaritan’s Purse to aid them in their emergency relief and community development programs, as well as their educational, feeding, shelter and medical projects.
