Oh hai

Helen Tran

I’m a Product Designer spending the majority of my time growing a team. I write what I know and ask questions about what I don't.


Twitter–my main cheese
Instagram–travel diary
Dribbble–design experiments

Mostly in my head

I’m a hobbyist writer who writes about Design, the tech industry, surviving life as a creative professional, and my place as a Designer in the world.

Sometimes on the road

I’m an aspiring vagabond travelling from place to place collecting stories. I write little blurbs about where I've been.

This weekend was unusually...
The pursuit of silence...
Since I sat up here...
To get here...
