Hi! Welcome to my website.

My name is Austin Headley, and I am a designer and marketer from Toronto, Canada. I have been helping clients with their  creative needs for around 15 years. I created atomhead design in 2012 as a branding exercise, and as a conduit for interesting freelance projects that engage me to learn new skills.


Master brand logo

At the Heart & Stroke Foundation, I managed brand quality, art direction, and project management for the national Creative Services team. I drove improvements through templates, design systems, processes and leadership, while also providing art, creative, and UX direction across multiple channels and mediums to bring relevant, engaging and visually appealing content to our audiences.

Created the logo, website, and various print materials for Immersed in English, an ESL training startup.

Symbility master brand logo

At Symbility, I was brought in to refresh and evolve the brand. I created a look and feel that was implemented across multiple channels and mediums.


Created the logo, branding, website and various print, digital and motion assets for promotion and administration of the Overtime Basketball League, a men’s recreational league startup.

heart & stroke 2019 report

Art direction, layout and UX design for the 2019 Heart & Stroke Report. We had recently decided to adopt Ceros, an online tool for creating interactive user experiences, and this was our first attempt at using it. 

After completion, the team at Ceros asked if they could feature it on their Inspire site, which showcases best-in-class design using their platform.

heart & stroke lottery digital banners

Project management and art direction for a set of digital banners. A different version of the banners were done by a large, well-known external agency, but the Lottery team was not happy with them. 

Our creative was run simultaneously with the agency creative as a test, and our version yielded double the click-through rate. Utilizing our in-house talent also saved the Lottery team thousands of dollars.
