Let's build good things for people.

I'm Helena, a Product Designer with four years of experience designing in technology companies, big and small. This summer, I'm looking to join a team in the Bay Area.

01

Making the complex simple, for people around the globe.

TransferWise

Hosting refugees

November 2017

Organised a two-day sprint that brought TransferWiser's and an NGO together to explore the question: How can we grow the act of hosting refugees? My team went on to develop a small video campaign that sought to encourage people to host. I built and designed the website.

Experienced working with large teams and systems.

Facebook

Intern, Summer 2013

As part of the Public Content team, we were focused on bringing high quality content to Facebook. My main project was the re-design of Pages - which launched at the end of my internship, and is somehow still live today.

Nights and weekends

I love making things, whether it's digital or physical. Lately, I've been learning React and taking a Creative Writing class. I also enjoy collaging and drawing.

What's up next?

I'm moving to the Bay Area this summer and am looking for a new team. While open to different sectors, I'm particularly excited about women's issues, healthcare, microfinances, and emerging markets. If what I'm talking about resonates with you, then I'd love to chat!
