Heron Communications

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


Heron Communications was the American division of Heron International, a UK property development company, and was formed around 1984 after buying up Media Home Entertainment. It ran many specialty brands within the United States, including The Nostalgia Merchant, Hi-Tops Video, Fox Hills Video, Condor Video, and Music Media, as well as several UK-based distributors. The company collapsed and was closed in the early 1990s, after their parent company had went into bankruptcy and their CEO was sent to prison for the Guinness share-trading fraud. Heron International still runs to this day.
