Welcome to the Shoes of Prey team Helen and Nat

It's with great pleasure that we introduce Helen Sham who has joined us as a full time graphic designer, and Natalie Wong who has joined as a part time software engineer, while she completes her studies.

Helen comes to us after a very successful career in the advertising industry. She started her career in Auckland at the global advertising agency Saatchi & Saatchi, specialising in typography and design craft. From there she moved to Sydney to join The Campaign Palace where she worked with Jodie. She was there for the last 3 years, designing campaigns for the likes of Bonds, Berlei and Panasonic.

If you are interested in Helen's creative abilities you can check our her online portfolio here: http://www.behance.net/helensham

In her spare time she enjoys spotting kerning errors in books and magazines, a glass of vino after work and baking cupcakes.

Helen with be working closely with Jodie and Susie to make Shoes of Prey a world-class visual and tactile experience. Very exciting!

Natalie is currently in her 4th year at UNSW studying Computer Science and Engineering. She has a keen interest in low level programming and operating systems. Whilst at university she has worked and volunteered in a wide variety of positions, including being the Secretary of the Computer Science and Engineering Society.

When she's not studying she pursues her passion for animals by volunteering as a kennel handler at the Sydney Animal Hospital.

Natalie will be helping our CTO, Mike Knapp, with a number of super secret tech projects, so watch this space!

Welcome to the team Helen and Natalie!
