Over Custom Webdesign
Mark de Haan
I am so thrilled with the result! My website has become me. Mind blowing. Hélène has the ability to translate your soul into a website. I have never seen this before. In a humble and intelligent way, she guides you though the whole creative process.
She is very conscientious and ambitious (in a good sense), it’s clear that she wants to get ahead in the world of webdesign and visual storytelling. But at the end of the day, the proof is in the pudding, and the pudding is her work. She knows, and that shows.
She makes use of her intelligence in a humble way, which is often enlightening. She has a multitude of talents. Her artistic background flourishes while she has the ability to listen, to observe and create in a calming, a soothing way.
With Hélène you co-create, and that feels special. Her skill to coordinate the uncoordinated is very innovative. This is of crucial importance for the growth of any business. I could not solely exist on the traditional value creation regimes of product or process innovation. Instead, Helene has the ability to develop and maintain a broader and wider-reaching capability of ‘creating new business’.
Thank You Hélène, for being you.

“I’m Elena Lin. Choreographer, performer and educator. I feel very fortunate, that I had this opportunity to meet Hélène Mulder. An excellent webdesigner, storyteller and wonderful human being. Observing her, while creating my 2 websites, was one incredible journey, full of new ideas and excitements, composing the images, videos and texts and much, much more.

Flowers with a Message
“I work very intuitively with flowers, write poems and give flowerreading workshops. I was looking for a web designer who could understand my language of creation in such a way, that she was able to translate the intangible of my work into images. Finally I succeeded, Hélène Mulder managed to do this in a very artistic and creative way. Colourful, light, feminine and full of flowers. I am very proud of the beautiful result, in which I clearly recognise myself. I really enjoyed working with Helene. She knows how to guide the process in a clear way. If you have a creative profession that you want to portray authentically, I can definitely recommend Hélène!

“Hélène immediately understood what I wanted to convey with the Metro Java 2045 project in a process in which I had to move quickly for an international presentation for the Indonesian Ministry of Transport. The result is a clear and accessible website which presents itself well to my audience, which puts my important graphics in the right light and which I can also manage very easily myself. Exactly as I had hoped it to be! A flawless, professional collaboration, which I am very happy to repeat for one of my upcoming projects. Looking forward to that! Thank you, Hélène.”

potter for Axel Vervoordt + private label
“It is probably one of the most typical things to say as an artist but it is true that lots of creators are not good in words. As a potter I often work alone. Wedging clay, throwing it on the potters wheel, trimming, glazing, loading the dried works in the kiln and finally firing. All those process I do it totally alone most of time. There are a lot of dialogues between I and the materials or the tools in those processes. There is so much depth in each of those dialogues. I keep finding new meaningful things endlessly from them.
And I think that there is no need to explain about the dialogues to anyone. Because I believe that my work itself will contain and somehow imply all those memories of the process on its presence. And that’s enough, I believe. On top of that very simply I just don’t know how to translate the “language” I use for the dialogues.
However my belief or excuse is I still understand that usually people won’t be able to read much of the memories simply by looking at the work. And it must be interesting for them to see a bit deeper than what they think they see. At this point I feel that the necessity of a mediator to help the translation of the dialogues.
And here she comes. Hélène comes up with her natural curiosity and the skill of clearfying with words which would help for the translation. In my case during the interview her questions made my thoughts so clear in words surprisingly. I think that’s not only because of her considerable questions but also her passion you feel during the session. You feel her curiosity towards your work. And after a while you would also sense that she wants to create a better situation for the creators in the society. And you feel that she loves what she does. She is a creator herself, too, in the end.
It is fantastic idea to have a good community of creators to inspire and to support eachother. And I’m sure that Hélène‘s creativity and the website of Creators Chambers could do something about it and bring people to better understanding to our work.”
“Working with Hélène Mulder was very rewarding in every way. For the first time, Creators Chambers produced a visual story remotely. My husband, photographer Peter Christensen, and I filmed many sequences. Hélène directed and edited everything into a film. The way she guided and directed us was impressive. It quickly became clear that Hélène knows where she wants to go, which was very helpful in the realisation. Nevertheless, she left us a certain amount of freedom, which was important for our creativity.
I always felt that Hélène had a very good sense of how to present me and my work on film. Her incredible curiosity about artists and their work is great. What a valuable job Creators Chambers does in shining a light on artists! And Hélène does this with incredible joy and humour!
Hélène’s experience as a storyteller, filmmaker and creative was valuable and we were able to learn a lot. I am very happy with the result! It shows an honest and authentic picture of me and my work as a visual artist.”

Fashion & textile conservator
“Working with Helene and Creators Chambers was very easy from the beginning, both of us understood very well which message was meant to be translated from the job that I do. She gave me the confidence enough for feeling free during my work and I forget that someone was recording me. I am very pleased with the result and I hope that people would be able now to know what a fashion conservator does in any musuem in the world.”

potter and painter
“Working with Hélène for Creators Chambers has been an experience of firsts for me. Talking directly to a camera wasn’t something that I was accustomed to, but she made me feel very comfortable and at ease, making it a good experience and one that I won’t forget easily. At times I forgot that she was even filming and we were having a very organic conversation with one another, a chat.
I was touched to receive feedback from friends, family and viewers that they felt an overwhelming sense of emotion whilst watching the video that Hélène captured so naturally, something that is not easy to accomplish. She truly captured a sense of home whilst I was working in my studio, and I am very pleased with the result.
What I have gained from this experience is more confidence in my ideas, to openly talk about my practice without fear of doubt or contemplation. I look forward to taking a virtual step inside fellow creators studios or workshops and to learn from their interests and passion.”
The Hague, visual artist
“Hélène of Creators Chambers made a video portrait of me as a visual artist. She takes the time to film, in her relaxed atmosphere I felt free to be myself and sometimes even forgot the presence of her camera. She responds to what she observes on the spot instead of sticking to a well-defined plan. Because of this I felt part of her creative process and there was room to create things and moments (something I like very much as a visual artist). During the interview she asks original questions that give both myself and the viewers insight into my creative process. She knows exactly what she needs to capture to make the video into an atmospheric and captivating whole and I am very happy with the result.”
