HeroPress reaches out to people in the WordPress community who feel marginalized as a result of culture, language, gender, or anything else. The published essays come from people who have overcome barriers which previously kept them on the periphery.
I met Topher DeRosia, who runs the HeroPress website, at Prestige Conference in May 2016. He reached out to me June 2016 to see if I was interested in working on blog images for their weekly essays. Each week he sends me a quote and lets me design a simple blog image to match the feel or inspiration for that weeks essay.
