...the quality of Leigh's work is excellent. His communication is spot on and he always delivers within timescales & helps us out in emergency situations! He is a font of all knowledge and always offers great advice on how best to take a project forward. It is such a help to have someone like Leigh to call on!

...he is expert at getting a brand to move, creating new ways in which brand marks and campaigns can come to life. He is also a creative whose opinion I would always turn to when considering what type of films clients would want.

We have worked with Leigh on several animation projects, all of which he has given 110%. He has a great 'can do' attitude, even when timings are really tight! And always comes to the table with lots of ideas to bring the creative idea to life.

Leigh is a rare breed - a competent digital all-rounder with a good grasp of how to turn strong creative ideas into a rich user experience online. He's well tuned into cutting edge techniques and how they can be applied to deliver effective digital strategies.

15+ years of motion graphic design in brand, storytelling, social, campaigns, presentations and video editing. From helping with process, script, storyboarding, to illustration, animation and delivery.

I’ve worked across almost all sectors including Finance, Pharmaceutical, Creative, Telecoms, IT, Banking, Fintech, Startup, Marketing and Government.

Presentations, animations and videos as standalone part of a corporate deck, explainers, pitches, social or part of integrated brand campaigns from character led animations to 3D brand marks. My experience of motion, graphic design, digital design, print and brand helps make me a driven and strong all-rounder, creative. Creative, collaborative, productive, efficient, reliable and easy to work with (my clients say).
