Helen Pape is a Melbourne-based designer and illustrator working for the digital design agency DT.

Helen creates designs for clients as well as for personal projects.
More of her personal works and creative experiments can be found on her Instagram.

Helen and her two sisters Christine and Evie grew up making things with their hands – drawing, painting and sculpting. This passion for creating playful work with a hand-crafted quality is present in her work across print, digital, and physical applications.

Helen graduated from an exchange program at the Danish School of Media and Journalism in Copenhagen and RMIT’s Bachelor of Communication Design in 2013.

After graduating Helen has had the opportunity to work in a variety of collaborative environments. Her experience has ranged from working as an in-house designer at a large multi-national retailer, to working in both small and large creative agencies.

Helen has worked on numerous projects including traditional graphic design and branding through to responsive eCommerce stores and immersive brand experience campaigns. She has a growing passion for product styling and photoshoots.

Helen cares deeply about design that makes people happy.
She seeks to create beautiful forms that evoke a sense of curiosity and fulfil the goals of an end-user.

The featured project “Little Miracles” is an example of a creative project that has created a new funding model for a charity.
