My name is Alica Jörg. I'm working as Design Director at Brand Agency Helder specialised in Strategic Design.

I have had the pleasure of working around the world in London, New York and Sydney in the areas of Branding, Digital Design and Moving Images. Along the way, I have worked for a range of clients including UNICEF, World Wide Fund for Nature, National Autism Society and eBay. 

I am passionate about building close relationships with people and using design as a medium to bring about social change.
