About me

 

Kevin Helas is an award-winning designer, artist and illustrator with over 20 years experience working across the cultural, corporate and particularly the food & hospitality sectors. Kevin is committed to creating well-crafted design solutions which communicate with clarity, from the heart. He relishes the opportunity design offers as a facilitator of change. A delight in the exploration of language and communication lies at the heart of his work, and informs the artworks he produces alongside his design practice. 'I am inspired by the collaborative nature of design and the journey it often entails: the enquiry that takes place to identify the essence or spirit of a project, and the satisfaction of crafting a solution that surprises and delights all parties.'
