April Sights + Sounds

Here at the studio we’ve been busy creating brand identities, launching new websites into the world and organizing photoshoots [have you seen our latest blog?] Of course, in the background of all the work, we’ve been listening to some great music that we’re excited to share! So here it is: sights + sounds vol. III 

This is also the most fire playlist cover we’ve ever dropped. Just saying.

The Process: Photoshoots

We’re coming off of a successful 2-day photoshoot on Miami Beach for one of our real estate clients, 57 Ocean. As a branding studio, we pride ourselves in curating the full brand experience, from concept to identity to all forms of visual communication. For 57 Ocean we spearheaded a photo and video shoot to support the sales and marketing team with new content that would help tell the brand story and highlight the lifestyle. Photography played a huge role as an extension of their visual identity.

A great photoshoot is more than one person with a camera, it’s a full team effort.  Here at helium, we have a variety of photography + video partners we enlist depending on the look and feel we’re trying to achieve. We have a hand in every part of the process: vision, storyboarding, planning, coordinating teams and, of course, being on set to help art direct and manage the process to ensure the concept comes to life.

For 57 Ocean, helium enlisted one of our favorite photography + video teams to execute the sophisticated look and brand narrative.

Here is a sneak peak into our process.

helium discusses hiring with Web Designer Magazine

With Summer just around the corner, many college students have started applying for internships at design studios all across the country. Many of them with similar questions:  What does it take to be a good candidate? What does an agency look for in my resume? What do I need to know?

We answered those questions [and many more] in an interview we did with Web Designer Magazine.  Take a look at this snippet where we talked about working here at helium.

February Sights + Sounds

There are many different things that inspire us as a team: people, design, color, music, creativity, conversations, food, and much more.  However, these things are no fun if we keep them all to ourselves. So here it is folks, the first iteration of helium Sights + Sounds. Each month, you’ll get a sneak peak into the music we’re blasting in the office and the many things that bring inspiration and joy to each of us.

Get ready, plug in your headph – err, connect your Airpods and listen with us. *full disclosure, Kelly made us put blink 182 on this.
