Simple dressing for complex ideas.

Hello, I’m Leah. I am a designer, writer and maker currently living in London, UK.

When I’m not modelling wooden pegs with such finesse, you can usually find me channelling contemplation into some heartfelt designs or delightful wording, in a kind of material-image-writing synthesis.

I started my journey in fashion, graduating from UWE Bristol in 2013 with First Class Honours in Fashion Design, before going on to gain a Distinction on the MA Fashion Futures course at London College of Fashion in 2017. My interests lie in the questions that circulate around personal identity, social relations and design domains. I’ve delved into varied topics including: social media and body image; ethics and sustainability; creative process and industry pace; and most recently, critical uses of design to foster discussions. Alongside, I’ve worked for a variety of organisations, from charities and schools, to grassroots arts projects and start-up brands. In them, I’ve co-planned creative strategies, written copy, designed graphics, run workshops, coordinated events and generally helped keep things running in the background. You can get a flavour of all this in Projects.

My focus now is marrying thoughtfulness with creativity, to find clever and delightful ways to engage people in key concerns going into the 21st Century. I have a fondness for approachable access points, considered critique, gentle provocation, and taking small steps together to build a better tomorrow for people and planet alike.

Beyond work antics, the Notes section here acts as a virtual scrapbook for other adventures in the world. You’ll likely find a mix of travel tales, process snippets, musings and things that make me curious.
