who is helium creative?
As our founder + creative director, Christopher is involved with every project his company takes on. He has instilled the hands-on, caring approach that is helium creative and provides the leadership that separates our business strategy and client relationships from other agencies. He leads with his head but follows his heart. Christopher is the captain of our ship, ensuring that helium stays on the rise.
As the art director, Ryan plays a huge role in day-to-day operations at helium creative. With a background in Fine Art and a degree in Graphic Design, he leads the design team from concept to execution. His passion for art, writing and design have helped shape the voice of helium creative. Whether Ryan is designing a project himself or overseeing another designer, his influence is felt at helium.
Kelly began her journey with helium as an intern, but quickly showed her strength and passion for design. She now calls helium a permanent home, putting her own touch on all projects. If not endlessly scrolling through Pinterest for inspiration or planning what to craft next, Kelly can be found filling her sketchbook with typography and hand-lettering.
Enid keeps the helium team on-point managing projects from start to finish. She has a background in project coordination, media production, marketing, and even a Master’s in Branding. In between following-up with clients and vendors through her color-coded emails, Enid also chimes-in with valuable creative input on our multiple branding projects.
Our newest addition to the helium team is Amanda, a talented Venezuelan-born designer who is essential to us meeting our design deadlines. [Thank you, Amanda!] After interning with us for 3 months, we knew we couldn’t lose her keen eye for design mixed with speedy creative skills. When she’s not at helium, her puppy Joey Tribbiani [best dog name ever] keeps her quite busy.
Max, Maximillion, Maxy, Max Attack, Maxim. This little guy has the biggest heart and an even bigger appetite for face licking. When he hangs out at the studio, Max can usually be seen curled up on Ryan’s lap, under Chris’ desk or giving Kelly the wide-eyed, pet-me-please gaze from across the room. Max is pretty much one of the coolest pups ever in the history of pups.
The latest addition to the pup crew at helium creative. Emma is a hyperactive sweetheart with one crazy eye who loves to chew on anything and everything. In between periodic naps, Emma can be found in the middle of the floor giving killer puppy dog eyes that can melt even the strongest of will! She plays hard but loves even harder, give her a cookie and she’s yours for life.
No matter where you live in the world, we believe that kids still need a chance to be kids. To run, play, create, and explore. Our mission is to give kids that opportunity. To a large number of children around the globe, a gesture as simple as providing paint and a canvas to create something all on their own, or giving them the love and attention that they need, can make a world of difference.
Through fundraising efforts, the support of individuals and businesses who invest in our vision, helium inspires is able to create experiences for these kids to do what they do best, be kids.
