The HELHEST name derives from the Scandinavian myth of the Helhest, an undead three-legged harbinger of death and disease.
While this concept might confuse some as a name for a design studio, it was picked to represent our work.
The concept of a harbinger of Death permeates the cultural mythology of Earth, represented through figures such as the Grim Reaper of English literature or Charon, the Ferryman of the River Styx, of the Greeks. They are known to guide the lost souls of the dead to their resting place in the afterlife.
While the subject matter may be morbid, our interpretation of the Helhest is not as a being of evil, but as a benevolent force of the afterlife.
Guiding lost souls is what we do here at HELHEST.
