Helm

Helm: Personal Home Server

designed for Helm @ NewDealDesign / 2017

Team: Erik Askin, Luke Mastrangelo, Carlos Dominguez, Andrew Browning

Role: industrial design, research, sketching, model-making, CAD, rendering, CMF

Helm approached NewDealDesign to develop its inaugural product: a home server for securing sensitive personal data. For a client launching their first piece of hardware, we wanted to build a iconic presence and ensure ease of manufacturing. We wanted a device that would be uncompromising in its toughness and performance, yet feel trustworthy and human.

 Because Helm has capabilities normally found in larger, business-class hardware, heat dissipation was a major consideration. By making the heatsink a central design element, we were able to make a smaller, more cohesive device and eliminate the need for a fan.

 The “home” design was selected both for its upgradability and its ability to stand out in a crowded market.
