I approach my clients’ art direction and design projects with the professionalism of an experienced marketer and the eye of an artist and illustrator.

I have deep, cross-category experience in marketing — from direct (traditional and digital), advertising and brand identity, to collateral, promotion and event marketing — and pride myself on my ability to deliver quality work on strategy, on time and on budget.

When illustrating I enjoy creating whimsical, often humorous, images which are ideal for children’s books and in select client projects, could also bring a distinct dimension to creative campaigns. Read Less

"Whenever I’m faced with a particularly thorny challenge — one that requires a marketing sense almost as strong as graphic design ability — I call Leon.

"Leon has designed several music materials (CD covers, promotional collateral, and a logo) for me over the last 15 years. His work is refreshing and powerful.

Leon has that rare (and it is indeed very rare) gift. Whatever he touches — be it a stunning, surreal illustration or a corporate ID — conveys that sense of freshness and magic. I can’t recommend him or his work highly enough."

Marc Farre
Writer, Editor, Composer, Singer, and Songwriter


"Over the past year, I've had the great pleasure to work with Leon on a number of marketing and communication projects for NES Financial. His ability to quickly get up to speed on the brand, target audiences and key messaging, and then apply that understanding to create outstanding materials across both traditional and digital media is impressive. Indeed, along with his strategic thinking, Leon's finely-honed talent for design, art direction, and illustration, combined with his collaborative approach to the work have made him a "go-to" creative resource for our company."
