Who is this guy?
My name is John Leigh, I've been fortunate to have been involved in creative work as soon as I left college. I started in Radio at an Independent Local Radio station in the Commercial Production department, writing scripts and booking voice over talent for audio ads. As an electronic music studio musician this led me into music and audio production work including writing jingles. I later transitioned into Graphics and Web design which took me into motion and animation work, as well as photography, video, post production, 3D and VFX.
Having a broad creative skillset, it takes me in diverse directions and projects and am constantly updating, evolving, learning and taking on new skills whilst consolidating existing skills. It's an exciting time to be a digital creative, I just love being involved in a variety of challenges and providing timely creative solutions for projects. Yes it's a lot of interests and pursuits but Ive always been this way, I seem to be wired this way, and it works well for me and the clients I work with. I'm forever inspired, curious and motivated and all of these creative disciplines crossover, intersect and compliment eachother.
I have been working on a freelance basis for companies, small businesses, charities and individual clients providing help and support with creative work and photography with speedy turnaround.
