A Senior Art Director that makes an impact in advertising Entertainment, Food, Restaurants, Retail, Fashion, Music and Gaming.  A dedicated creative that has a loyal reputation with CEO's, VP's and Directors in getting marketing projects done.  This is who I am and this is what I am proud to share.  My name Michael Leon.  Having worked with companies such as Caesars Entertainment, my work has been used for seven Atlantic City properties and Las Vegas casinos.  I was one of three creatives that started an A.C. in-house advertising department.  Behind the scenes I created department structure, I developed promotional material, and designed brand identities for more event entertainment than I could count.  Working with The Media & Marketing Group, I continued to learn the competition, their trends and the marketing people.  I not only know these industries, I adapt to any clients brand and embody their vision. I offer a creative edge. Do you need a creative mind with proven, diehard, loyal traits?  I go the distance.

P.S. Proud Stats:
Workloads: 25 design projects done daily and 400 projects done monthly.
Creating the Caesars Entertainment in-house department demonstrated a record $900,000 savings in design and advertising each year.

Bottom-Line:
Experienced & Accomplished?  YES
The difference IS my consistency, the result IS our success.  
Live in the moment.  Share in my experience.  No matter the project, WE will make the difference.
