About Us

Helios Design Labs is a multi-disciplinary design studio specialized in the creation of unique interactive experiences. Driven by design, the art of traditional storytelling and emerging technologies, we seek out projects that inspire and create change for the better.

Our client list includes collaborations with the BBC, the National Film Board of Canada, Harvard University, the Copenhagen Philharmonic, The Rockefeller Foundation, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, as well as many documentary filmmakers, academics and artists that are willing to explore the expanding horizons of interactive storytelling.

Our projects have received many notable awards including the Peabody, a World Press Photo Award, an Emmy Award, and the Canadian Screen Awards.

You can find us in Toronto and Berlin.
