Our purpose: to bring people together through design.
Behind (almost) every brand are people who have created it based on a specific motivation in addition to pure profit, and who shape and lead it according to their values ​​and their attitude. Our purpose is to reach out to the people who share these values. Therefore, we strive to visually translate the brand’s personality with our design and make it tangible in the best possible way.

Who we work for
In brand design, we work for clients from a wide range of industries, such as community, lifestyle and tech. We develop consistent and strategic looks based on the brand. Sometimes we are midwives for brand new brands, sometimes we sharpen an existing profile and give your new identity a face. Before we say yes to a project, we look at four poles that are important to us: content and design, passion and security.

What we do not do

unpaid work
We are willing to go the famous extra mile – if both partners are committed. We do not work for free. Therefore, we do not provide concepts or drafts as part of unpaid pitches. However, we are happy to answer questions about what we can do for you without obligation. Just talk to us!

Unethical projects
We do not work with customers whose values ​​we do not share. This includes companies or institutions that do not respect, disregard or deliberately harm people, animals and the environment, such as radical, unconstitutional political organizations, arms factories or factory farmers.

Unfair treatment
Mutual respect and appreciation are very important to us. This of course applies to any applicant, employee or contact person, regardless of origin, nationality, age, gender, religious affiliation, sexual identity, physical or mental limitations.

If our design signature suits you, send us your complete application documents with meaningful work samples, your salary expectations and the earliest possible start date to: jobs@helder.design. We look forward to reading from you.
