If Leigh had a dollar for living in NYC, Tampa, Savannah, Atlanta, Portland and Asheville, she’d have almost enough to buy a yurt and a hot dog.
Leigh is a creative services veteran with over 20 years of project and account management experience spanning branding, marketing, publishing, advertising, strategy, copywriting, and packaging disciplines within the design industry.
She earned a dual major bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design and Photography at the Savannah College of Art and Design and has led countless creative teams to successfully complete project initiatives on behalf of Fortune 100 companies, for some of the world’s most well-recognized brands.
Her love of branding and design began as a small child when she became enraptured by a bottle of Clairol Herbal Essence Shampoo.
A simple, hand-drawn illustration of a nature goddess repose in a flower-encircled pool, cast a spell that transported her to a place far more magical than her suburban Long Island bathtub.
This single occurrence was the beginning of a life-long interest in aesthetics, and specifically, in the power of imagery and brand to elicit emotional responses, or even project an alternate identity over its beholder.
The rest, as they say, is history.
