CK Anderson

CK Anderson

principal & creative director
ck@helveticka.com

Forty-some years ago, CK embarked on a career in graphic design only when it became increasingly evident that the NBA wasn’t going to call. It all worked out, though: instead of a has-been point guard with bad knees, CK has become one of the region’s foremost branding experts, leading a small and cohesive team of some of the most talented and creative thinkers in the northwest.

project manager

After four decades in the business of graphic design, marketing, media and public relations planning, brand management, and strategic development, Linda’s somehow been able to maintain an easygoing disposition. It’s a rare ability that, no doubt, results from the rigorous training to prepare her for her term as a princess in the Spokane Lilac Festival Royal Court.

Shirlee Roberts-Downey

associate & senior designer

When Shirlee’s in charge – which, let’s be honest, is most of the time – things just seem to get done. And done right. In addition to a formidable (not to mention wide-ranging) set of design skills, she has an uncanny ability to think through, and solve, every conceivable production problem before it ever arises. We’re just thankful she’s using her super powers for good.

Denise Wilson

Denise Wilson

senior copywriter
denise@helveticka.com

She’s not your run-of-the-mill creative writer. Denise has never penned a single line of esoteric poetry or dreamed of writing the Great American Novel. But strategic storytelling? That’s where she shines – making the complex simple, the confusing clear, and the intimidating approachable. So, we expect she’ll still change the writing world. One nonesoteric word at a time.

Aaron Robertson

Aaron Robertson

senior designer
aaron@helveticka.com

A creative who can deliver, Aaron’s got the ability to envision all the steps to bring a project to life and the talent to pull them off. It’s a skill he’s honed for more than a decade, managing design projects. That, or he earned it wrangling the family pets – four dogs, two cats, two rabbits, and two guinea pigs. Either way, we’re impressed.

I don’t want to freak you out, but graphic designers are hiding something from you.
