"Working within Helix has brought me experiences I never thought I would have as a designer, seeing the world of healthcare from the inside, that is both inspiring and challenging. Furthermore, working in health draws a wonderful bunch of people who are motivated by making a positive impact on the world, as well as using their creativity and entrepreneurialism."

Matthew Harrison, Senior Designer
