“You’re not designing it yourself?” After “what it is about?”, this is the question I am most often asked about my upcoming book. And when I say no I am met with baffled looks and questioning voices. “But you’re a designer?” Yes. Yes, I am....
Be honest, I have drawn you in with the swear haven’t I? Some of you may recognise the title of this post. It is not me on a rant. But it is a lyric from a song which Spotify thankfully threw at me a few months back. Immediately something in me stirred. Something...
Working with Helen was a delight. After setting the parameters of the design project, Helen provided a clear outline of what I could expect, which meant I could be confident enough to leave Helen to progress things with little further input from me. Helen initially carried out the instructional design for a specific course for me and I was extremely pleased with the results. Because the original scope was so clear, there were no surprises upon completion and the content needed no revisions. Following this success, I asked Helen to do the build of the e-learning. Again, the outputs were fantastic with Helen achieving a good grasp of our design style and approach. I would have no hesitation in recommending Helen and her work and look forward to working with her again in the future.

Working with Helen has been on of the easiest things I have done over the last 6months. Helen brought a wealth of knowledge, style and enthusiasm to her designs, she helped us go from zero eLearning to building a portfolio of engaging and appealing modules which are used by our 450+ students and staff. Helen helped us implement standards, create templates and training materials, nothing seemed to daunt her! With patience of saint and such a friendly approach, the whole experience of working with Helen has been one I couldn't recommend highly enough!

I worked with Helen on a challenging public sector programme where she formed an integral part of the design team which successfully took our product through GDS assessment. Even though Helen had almost lost her voice, she still made a significant contribution - this demonstrates Helen's determined and positive attitude, she won't let her team down. Helen is a highly creative individual and a great person to work with. She's highly collaborative, creative and has a flexible 'can-do' attitude. I'd highly recommend Helen on a personal and professional level.
