Spotlight On NW Creative: Jelly Helm Breaks Work For Oregon Humanities


Jelly Helm left his high profile and well-paying, if not always comfortable, position at Wieden + Kennedy about a year ago. He says he’s gaining momentum as a solo act now and that he feels great about his ability to provide a higher caliber of client service.

The relationship with “clients” has been transformative. I feel uncomfortable even calling them clients. Partners? Part of the team? I know, ick, sounds like something on a brochure, but it’s real: I traded the rectangular table for a circular one and that has made all the difference.
