About Higman Graphics

I am a graphic designer, printer and promotional product distributor. I have 35 years in the design and graphics industry starting as a typographer by trade before there were personal computers. I have lived in Chico for 18 years and I love the area, the people and the beautiful surroundings. The Camp Fire changed everything. Obviously for all who lived in the burned area but also for my immediate family members that lost everything, my company also lost many clients. #buttestrong #magaliastrong #concowstrong #paradisestrong #wewillrebuild

November 7 - I was at my sisters house in Magalia. We were finalizing our Christmas craft project, decorating little trees with tiny beads and our I Love Chico, CA Ornaments. My sister thought it smelled like rain was coming, I shrugged and said we weren't expecting any. I drove home, excited to finish our
