About me
I'm Leon, a creative director and designer based in London. I'm currently lucky enough to be leading a really talented design team at one of Europe’s fastest growing companies, Sequoia-backed cybersecurity B2B platform Tessian. All about creative leadership, brand strategy, and collaborating with great people on great things.
