My name is John Leigh, I'm based in Pimlico London and I'm fortunate to have been involved in creative work as soon as I left college.
I got my start 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 audio production work including writing jingles, and somewhere along the way I transitioned into Graphics and Web design which also got me hooked into motion and animation work, photography, video, post production and 3D.
I wore many creative hats working for 2 corporate companies that began as startups and in addition to the creative side my experiences taught me a lot about project collaboration, communicating and perhaps most importantly working with clients of all types from small businesses and individual clients to big brand names and successfully running projects.
Having a broad creative skillset takes me in a lot of diverse directions and projects and I'm constantly updating, evolving, learning and taking on new skills whilst consolidating existing skills. It's an exciting time to be a digital creative, I love being involved in a variety of challenges and providing timely creative solutions for projects. As a one man band force of one operation you are in touch directly with the lead designer.
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 and compliment eachother at the intersections providing options and ideas that complete the circle.
For the past 2 years I have been working freelance for companies, small businesses, charities and individual clients providing help and support with design, creative work, video and photography with speedy turnarounds. If you have been thinking about a project and need someone to talk to I would be interested if you would like to get in touch.
