a bit about me...

Hi! I’m Helen, a Product & Graphic Designer based in Edinburgh. I thrive on supporting the success of others through creative problem solving, with my work spanning a variety of industries across a range of media.

I am a people-oriented person who loves to help individuals and companies realise their ambitions by delivering creative solutions which fuel their businesses.

Working with me

Having had the pleasure of working with Helen for over 5 years, on what probably adds up to hundreds of Gibsons projects, I can safely say that she is a dream creative partner. Her ability to take a brief and make it a reality is second to none. No request is ever too much and she goes the extra mile to deliver projects to deadlines and to the highest possible standard.

Emily Charles, Head of Product Development, Gibsons Games

Helen helped us to distill our company mission and values to their core components, which ultimately formed the basis of our new brand. She expertly guided us through the process, iterating on the colours and logo designs to give us a brand that embodies our company and resonates with our customers.

Euan Wielewski, CEO, Filament

Helen was instrumental in helping us develop our brand. Early on, she created profile boards which were incredibly helpful in communicating our new business to potential suppliers and informing our buying decisions to ensure we stayed on track. Helen took time to listen to us, responded well to feedback, and has developed a brand identity that we are beyond proud of. We would not hesitate to recommend Porridge Design.

Claire McLoughlin, Six Acres
