I'm Helen Cooley, a freelance creative who believes that great design is rooted in great ideas. This is the key to creating memorable, meaningful work that gets results for my clients. I always strive to be clear, relevant and straight-talking.

Trained in graphic design, with 17 years industry experience in top London agencies including The Partners, The Workroom and Conran Design Group, I'm also a passionate photographer and illustrator.

When I'm not working I'll usually be surfing, drawing or travelling glued to my camera.

I work in London and Cornwall. I'd like to hear from you.
