Curious what HeyGiud means? 

HeyGiud is a long held family email or social tag in owner and founder, Annie Giudicessi's family. 

Originally taken from The Beatles song "Hey Jude", Annie's father, Rick, created his first email address, "heygiud" as a way to show his love of music and an abbreviation on his name. The name stuck! He has used it for years and when this company was founded nothing felt more appropriate than carrying on the tradition. So HeyGiud Communications was born! Annie, much like the rest of her family, is an avid music lover. So the name felt right. It was a way to show some of her own personal brand in her company's branding; a music lover, a family oriented person, and if nothing else, it would help people pronounce a very difficult and very Italian last name. 

Pronunciation: Jude-a-sessy

 

Meet Annie!

Annie Giudicessi, Owner

I'm Annie Giudicessi and I'm the owner, founder, and brains behind HeyGiud Communications. I am a self-described social media addict. I have always been an early adopter of new social media platforms and love explore and master them. I have a passion for branding that goes back to my childhood. With parents who worked in retail, design, art and the event industry, there were always logos and something new around the house. 

I have a Bachelor of Arts from Central College in Communications Studies and a Social Marketing Specialization from Northwestern University. I have spent years learning the nuances and details of Social Marketing and have a passion for helping businesses and Non-Profits utilize the tools available through Social Marketing and digital channels to enhance and grow their brand.

In the rare hours where I manage to disconnect from the Socialsphere, I enjoy photography, writing, exploring the amazing city of Des Moines and spending quality time with my family. I have a rather large collection of vinyl records that date back to a $.25/per record garage sale find of The Beatles "HELP" and Crosby, Stills, & Nash "Self-Titled" when I was 10. I was also influenced by ZZ Top as a child and have more sunglasses than one person could ever need ranging from cheap to designer.

I am also involved in a variety of organizations in the Des Moines area including FuseDSM, the Greater Des Moines Partnership, and the Des Moines Jaycees. I currently sit on the board for FuseDSM as well as the Central Iowa Center for Independent Living.
