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.
Marco specializes in Computer Generated Graphics (CGI) with One Post Grade and 3 Masters Degrees by Autodesk Maya, earning the title “Maya Master”. With a passion for video games, drawing and art, his passion for Computer Animation was natural. If not working in Maya or finding new technology to experiment with, Marco is either going wild at CrossFit or disappearing in video games for hours on end.
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.
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.
