About the Principal

Helen Duval

Principal, founder, and creative director Helen Duval’s belief in collaboration sets the tone for Helen Duval Design. For over two decades, her strategic insight, creativity and technical abilities have won clients’ admiration and industry awards for attention to detail and the project’s end result.

Helen has a strong commitment to design and an outstanding devotion to her craft. Through her leadership on the board of the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA) in Los Angeles as Vice President of Programming, and her continued active participation on the advisory board following her term, she encouraged the growth of AIGA membership through educational and inspiring programming. In addition, as a speaker for UCLA Extension, she had the opportunity to inspire and mentor others seeking employment in the current design market. This dedication and recognized leadership have earned Helen the respect of both peers and newcomers alike.

A native of Melbourne, Australia, Helen studied art and design at Santa Monica College and Otis/Parsons College of Art before joining KBDA, Los Angeles in 1995, and founding Helen Duval Design in 2006. She currently resides in Northern California.
