Nicolas Léonard

Senior Art Director - UI Designer

Lyon, France
Hey, I'm a French guy who has just came back to France after 5 years of happy life in Mexico.

I love to craft high-quality digital interfaces which are meant to be a breaking point between aesthetics and usability, bringing to users easier and engaging interactions with them.

As a proud young father, I like to spend time with my beautiful daughter and cooking for my lovely wife, having some beer, wine, and I assume I have decent tastes in music (and yes, I love food...).

Feel free to say hello or if you plan to hire me ;)
