Jobs bei Designstudio Helder

Our purpose: to bring people together through design.

Behind (almost) every brand are people who have created it for a specific motivation beyond pure profit and who shape and lead it according to their values and attitude. Our Purpose is that they reach the people who share this attitude. That’s why we strive to translate the brand personality visually in the best possible way with our design and make it tangible.

Our approach

We consistently develop brand design strategically from the brand, its values and services. To achieve this, we work closely together as equals – both within the team and with our clients. The latter requires good German language skills for some positions.

Who we work for

We work in the field of brand design for clients from a wide range of industries, e.g. mobility, consulting, travel and tech. We consistently develop corporate identities strategically from within the brand. Sometimes we bring completely new brands to life, sometimes we refine an existing profile and give their new identity a face. Before we take on a project, we look at four poles that are important to us: Content and design, passion and security.

What we do not do

  • Unpaid work

    We are ready to go the famous extra mile – if both partners are committed. However, we do not work for free. That’s why we don’t deliver concepts or designs as part of unpaid pitches. We are happy to answer questions about what we do. Talk to us.

  • Unethical projects

    We do not work with clients whose values we do not share. This includes companies or institutions that do not respect or intentionally harm or disrespect people, animals and the environment, e.g. radical, unconstitutional political organizations, conventional animal breeding or the arms industry.

  • Unfair treatment

    Mutual respect and appreciation are a high value for us. This applies to every employee, regardless of origin, nationality, age, gender, religious affiliation, sexual orientation or physical or mental limitations.
