Lisa Helminiak


Lisa is co-founder and CEO of Azul Seven. She earned a Bachelor’s in International Studies from Boston University and had an early career as a professional dancer with the Dayton Ballet Company and the Minnesota Dance Theater. While still in the arts, she became interested in the emergence of digital media and began studying instructional design at the University of Minnesota.

Lisa left dance to begin working in design and interactive media. After a decade in the industry she co-founded Azul Seven on the vision that digital media could do much more than just look good and sell stuff. Combined with human-centered design, she believes digital media has the power to create organizational and cultural transformation.

Lisa teaches and speaks nationally on digital media and design. She also volunteers with nonprofits in the Minneapolis area.
