Reimagining a
familiar product

Helix asked us to breathe new life into a stationery brand that many of us have known since childhood.

The first innovation in math stationery in 80 years

Helix is the famous 120-year-old company that invented the ring compass in 1894, the first mass-produced ruler in 1899, the first math set in 1902 and many other patents besides. Helix’s leadership team asked us to continue the tradition. One of the products we created is this nifty combination of a compass and protractor that helps children draw easy and accurate lines and circles in Geometry.
