About

a cartoon portrait of the author in black and white

Raised in Deep South churches during the height of the Satanic Panic, Helvetica developed an early fascination with the occult and a keen eye for "hidden" symbolism. Naturally, this led to a career in graphic design.

After working as an in-house designer and illustrator since 2007, Helvetica set out in a new direction as an independent artist in 2020. Since then, they've continued to develop their craft while living on Nooksack and Coast Salish land in the Pacific Northwest — making prints, zines, album covers, concept art, and exploring the Inner Realms.

While they've been featured by Adobe Create and Mastodon, their most treasured accomplishment is having their art seen by game designer Keita Takahashi.
