Welcome to Hafodgau! We are Bruce and Cathy Hyer, and we tell stories—for non-profits
and organizations who need quality productions that communicate effectively.
What’s In A Name?
Hafodgau is Welsh, loosely translated as house at the head of the hollow. It is also the
name of the birthplace of Cathy’s grandmother Hannah Roberts, in northern Wales (pictured above).
Our ancestors lived in the hills—of Wales, Switzerland, Scotland and Ireland, then West Virginia and Alabama.
When we built our home in West Virginia, we named it after the original Hafodgau, in
honor of our ancestors but also because it correctly describes our house today. The background
behind the logo is slate, which is what the Roberts family quarried, and it also looks very similar
to coal, which is what Bruce’s ancestors mined.
