Helen is a brand designer, user experience consultant and creative strategist, currently building brands and interfaces.

"Good graphic designers abound, but only a handful can be entrusted with creating a top-down vision for a product or service. Helen is one of the select few. Her sense of discernment and perspicacity is not limited to design and art alone, as she also possesses an understanding and faculty for good management and communication." — Maciek Gdula, Startups & Other Exploits
"In 1 min Helen transformed the UI of my application into a product that customers loved. It's a true story and my clients opinions are the best recommendation for her talent" — Agnieszka Zdebiak, CEO & Founder BigB.it
