You don’t know where your path’s going to land when you get into this industry. I think we’ve been really fortunate to work on stuff that we love.
– Christian Helms, Helms Workshop Founder and Creative Director
Artist Christian Helms is the owner and founder of the award-winning Helms Workshop – a design company that does photo, video, and brand identity work out of their Austin-based studio.
Helms won a graduate studies competition which awarded him an internship at the prestigious New York design firm, Pentagram. Steady work at noted design companies followed. But as Helms’ side-projects started becoming more recognized, he thought the time was right to open his own place. And success proved swift.
Helms Workshop has done work for a diverse array of clients including Hasbro, Pabst Blue Ribbon, and HBO, as well as more up-and-coming brands like Austin Beerworks and Alamo Drafthouse. But as a self-described “music geek at heart,” Helms and his team also enjoy doing design work for bands like Modest Mouse, Spoon and The Hold Steady.
