Cantarus is pleased to announce a new addition to their Design team, Rob Helsby, who has taken up the position of Lead Designer from September 2019. From designing web platforms to crafting brand identities, Rob has worked on a wide range of projects with global clients and household names for more than 8 years.
Prior to joining Cantarus, Rob was Senior Designer at a UK top-10 digital agency, where he worked extensively with the agency’s flagship account, Lexus Europe, delivering digital products alongside a team of fellow creatives, UX consultants, strategists and developers. Notable clients that Rob has worked with include Co-op Food, Morrisons, Pizza Hut Restaurants and MoneySuperMarket.
Rob has also worked with a number of agencies across the North of England as well as client-side. He has travelled around the UK, Europe and Asia, working alongside partners and specialists to deliver exceptional brand communications. More recently, Rob has enjoyed tutoring Manchester College design students, where his work has included setting briefs, running workshops and providing feedback on the students’ work. This experience has led to ongoing mentoring as students graduate and begin to form their careers, and is evidential of Rob’s passion for supporting the next generation of designers.
Lee Adams, CEO at Cantarus, comments:
“I am delighted to have Rob join our team to lead our ever-growing design function. Rob’s prior senior experience at one of the UK’s largest agencies, working for some of the world’s foremost brands, will strengthen our offering and ensure we continue to delight our clients with innovative creative design, optimised user experiences and world-class branding.”
Cantarus is thrilled to welcome Rob to the team and looks forward to his contribution in continuing the delivery of best-in-class digital experiences.
