About Us

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

Our collaborations range from global brands and institutions to artists, academics and filmmakers 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.

We are based in Toronto, with collaborators around the world.
