I'm Leon, a brand designer, illustrator, and letterer born and raised in Los Angeles California. Currently on the exhibits design team at walt disney animation studios.
When I was 5, I wanted to be a race car driver. A year later, I got car-sick and started drawing. Growing up, I was always curious. I would take things apart and put them back together to figure out how they were made. Turns out, that curiosity never stopped. From executing the reproduction of the historic Disney Hyperion Studios neon sign, to the creative strategy involved in designing and producing international art exhibitions and experiences for Walt Disney Animation Studios, to art directing photo shoots and website redesigns, developing custom skate decks and apparel for BVRN.CO, I love figuring out how to make ideas come to life.
Nearly a decade of experience on the Walt Disney Animation Studios creative team, and more than 5 years running my own freelance projects, I've learned to think outside the screen, and love the creative challenge of bridging the digital and physical spaces. I’m no stranger to the intricacies, deadlines and coordination of manufacturing and print production. Great designs aren’t just rad to look at, they’re well researched, well executed, and create a meaningful connection with your audience.
