Thomas Couderc and Clément Vauchez founded Helmo in 2007, in Montreuil, near Paris. They worked on the design of new languages that would widen the boundaries of graphic design, overcoming the traditional divisions between photography, graphic art, illustration. Helmo disrupts the classic systems of institutional communication by proposing innovative, poetic solutions with a strong visual impact.

In 11 years of evolution, Helmo has reinterpreted and enriched the French tradition of engravings, creating an extraordinary visual repertoire. For Thomas Couderc and Clément Vauchez the creative process is born each time in different forms according to the destination and the nature of the message;
