Do It Kits is the home for all of the projects by Helen Leigh and her long-time collaborator and friend Phoenix Perry. We develop creative technology products, take commissions, host workshops and speak at events. We would love to work with you, so if you like what you do please reach out and let’s talk about how we can help (contact).
