Welcome! I’m Helena, a German freelance graphic designer. Besides that, I also illustrate, animate and code a little. Fittingly, I enjoy working with many different design formats and blending digital and print design. Some recurring subjects in my projects are typography, sustainability and a healthy love for wordplay. To see some examples of my work, take a look at my portfolio.
