Helms Workshop™ is an independent, strategic brand design studio. We love the process of working with companies to build, amplify and revitalize their brands. We create identities with personality— living, working brands with a point of view, and with character. We express that character through design.

We do our best work for clients who are passionate about their businesses; Companies willing to express a point of view, and show what makes them different— brave clients.

Often we work with new businesses, but we also help big brands take a look at what it might be like to be brave as well. They include global brands Jack Daniel’s, Hasbro and Pabst Brewing, multi-national agencies Wieden & Kennedy and Arnold Worldwide, local standouts Alamo Drafthouse and Austin Beerworks, and even a handful of bands- including Spoon, Modest Mouse, The Hold Steady and Wilco.

So you don’t have to be a small owner-operated start-up for our approach to work. But you do have to care.

The results? Brands people connect with, and love. With a bottom line of building your business.
