About Me

Helena MacDonald

Creative designer who is self-motivated, self-sufficient and comes to you with a strong print and digital background. I have worked extensively in the Trade Show industry and have hands on experience with pre and post press production. I am able to work independently as well as collaborate with clients on their design needs. I'm always willing to take on a challenge and learn new things.
