I am a highly driven creative spirit, with a poised pen and an eye for detail. Immersed across print, digital and the physical space, I seek diverse roles, challenging clients and lateral solutions. As co-founder of the Paris-based Leland Torpy partnership, my entrepreneurial spirit is coupled with a strict work ethic. A fresh-faced brand strategy partnership, Leland Torpy manages the development of cohesive corporate and client image rollouts. In 2014 we designed a new vision for the CEMS Global Alliance in Management Education magazine, which serves as a cornerstone of the brand's corporate partner and alumni communities. Since, we have worked with the American University of Paris, rolling out a highly successful fundraising brochure and innovative recruitment materials. Leland Torpy ventured into interior design as an extension of branding in the physical space in late 2014, taking on functional and aesthetic planning and execution for the American University of Paris' Combes building in the 7è arrondissement. As an individual, quickly gauging consumer responses and analyzing the success of tactical marketing has been key to my success. From 2012-2013, I managed Panasonic's Australian expert hub, at the nexus of online community, market research and branding. In-depth knowledge of contemporary design and an ability to effectively network have granted me journalistic access to Paris Fashion Week over several seasons. My circle of contacts within the industry is ever expanding. With extensive travel experience throughout the USA, Europe and Asia, I bring an independence, adventurousness and informed worldview to my work.
