Recommendations:

"Good graphic designers abound, but only a handful can be entrusted with creating a top-down vision for a product or service. Helen is one of the select few. Her sense of discernment and perspicacity is not limited to design and art alone, as she also possesses an understanding and faculty for good management and communication." — Maciek Gdula, Startups & Other Exploits
"Helen is a very talented designer which is a direct result of her being a great thinker. She's a big picture, meta level intellectual brave enough to break out of outdated conventions and skilled enough to define new directions. She's funny, thought provoking, fast and relentless in her pursuit of both beauty and functionality. I've loved working with her on Newsmavens" — Zuzanna Ziomecka Editor in chief of NewsMavens.com, VP of Polish Mindfulness Institute
