We are a student-run creative communications agency.
Welcome to Heelprint.
We hope you’ll take a minute or two to check out our website. If you have any questions, feel free to drop us a note.
Heelprint Communications is a student-run creative communications agency.
We are staffed and managed by students. We are an educational agency that gives students a dynamic outlet to explore the fields of advertising, marketing and public relations while providing them with valuable hands-on experience.
We cultivate curiosity and creativity. Curiosity and creativity are the costs of entry at Heelprint. All of our crew members are asked to contribute ideas, provide feedback, and throw in their two cents when they have something to add. ‘No’ doesn’t exist in our vocabularies because we believe it stifles creativity.
We work in teams. We favor frameworks over processes because we believe it results in greater, more innovative work. Accordingly, we work in multidisciplinary teams that each function as mini-agencies, free to make decisions and interact with clients independently.
We enjoy sharing and crave inspiration. The secret to our success isn’t much of a secret at all: We love culture. We find inspiration around us every day and enjoy sharing it.
Who is Heelprint?
Guided by insight and fueled by passion, we help brands tell their stories and build meaningful connections with audiences.
The Chuck Stone Program. Each summer, UNC-Chapel Hill’s School of Journalism and Mass Communication conducts the Chuck Stone Program for Diversity in Education and Media. The interactive workshop is held for rising high school seniors with diverse backgrounds who are interested in a career in journalism. The Chuck Stone Program hired Heelprint Communications to conduct website development and re-branding efforts as well as establish the new Chuck Stone Mentoring Program.

The Beat Making Lab. Beat Making Lab began as a class at UNC-Chapel Hill taught by Pierce Freelon and DJ Apple Juice Kid. The program quickly grew into movement dedicated to designing an open-source beat making software while fostering music creation in international communities. Last semester, Heelprint devised strategy, created artwork and conducted media relations for Beat Making Lab’s student Congo project titled “Amani Goma.” This semester, Heelprint will help brand and launch “Good for the World,” an album created exclusively by students at UNC-Chapel Hill.
