About me
My name is Chris Leigh, I’m an experienced problem solver. With decades of experience in colouring, arranging and pointing. Currently I work full time as a Design Director for the experiential agency Set Creative designing creative live events for a multitude of top brands. I specialise in taking the basic scraps of an idea and whittling it into a compelling graphical experience, across all mediums. This spans everything from pitch to print. If you have an interesting project, drop me a line.
