The art of type is an important and integral part in designing your print- and web projects, to make sure that your texts are legible. We happily advice you to chose the right font for your projects.

Digital Art

Digital Art, a kind of fashion? We think it is a kind of art of modern times. Neither oil, water color nor brush is the tool to create, but Photoshop, mouse and graphic tablet. We create new worlds, reinvent pictures newly or just design your book cover.

Today a website can be more important than a posh suit.

We create your website via WordPress, a very user friendly CMS (Content Management System).

When we have finished our work, we will educate you, how to use it, so that you will be able to change content easily on your own.

Corporate Design

Corporate Design walks together with Corporate Identity. We are talking about the visual appearance of your company, your organization, your publisher or yours as an author. CD/CI is not only for the big fishes in the lake. Even small companies need an uniformly appearance, to exist in today’s business world. We help you with it!

What our clients say

We have worked with Helen for several small graphic design projects for our jewellery business. I am very happy to recommend her work, friendly and on-time service with a great end result. I really appreciated how quickly Helen responded to all my emails regarding our vouchers and logo work – and her ability to understand all our requests for small changes. We look forward to working with Helen in the future.

You have helped me so smashing building my blog and with social media. I remember very well, that I had a vague imagination, how the logo might look like. Well, you have been the one, who  suggested a logo. You have said, that it is very helpful for the brand recognition. I was so green in this field. I just had an idea and wanted to market in the www. Everything which is Strickpate today, in the web, is due to you. And also the connected success.

My vague babbling, how I can imagine the logo, had been transformed by you to a real logo, before you could say Jack Robinson. This never happened to me before and again, that a person is able to visualize my verbal expression so quickly and so well.
