I am a visual storyteller with multidisciplinary design skills, from moving image to web and editorial design. I wish to implement and explore the concept of narrative structure in my work, with the aim of increasing the emotional engagement of my audiences and to offer a deeper level of communication and connection between myself and the audience.

Recent Testimonials 

In a world distracted by tricks and stunts, it was a relief to find someone who understands the profound importance of telling complex stories through everyday words and pictures. Helena's work on our global health initiative, Stop Superbugs, has revealed an uncanny ability to make the personal universal through hand-drawn design. If we deliver the project her artwork deserves, it's likely to become a source of quiet inspiration for the way society thinks and talks about our ability to overcome existential threat - in this case, drug-resistant infection.

– Michael Corley, Head of Policy and Public Affairs, The British Society of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy

I really enjoyed working with Helena on a design sprint project for a media client. Her approach to her work is friendly, engaged, responsive and highly collaborative.Helena worked with me throughout the design sprint. She assisted with design research interviews, sprint team activities and exploring new concepts. Helena produced high quality illustrations and storyboards at pace during the sprint. The visual stories were valuable in bringing our early ideas to life and validating them with target users.I highly recommend Helena and look forward to working with her again.

Matt Davies, User Experience Research and Design Consultant

I had the huge pleasure of having Helena design and typeset my 'On Purpose' paperback and e-book. From start to finish her dedication, skill and clarity of communication were exceptional and I couldn't be more delighted with the outcome. Probably the highest accolade I can give is that Helena treated this book as if it were her own, and the result of this is a beautifully crafted book. I have no hesitation in recommending Helena if you're looking for someone to support you with bringing your creative project to life.
