Hello, I’m Leah. A designer, writer, and maker who works between cloth and communication.
Words + Visuals
I spend most of my days finding the right words or right visuals to translate complex information into simpler forms. I draw together design intelligence and a flair for writing to make both physical and digital things that speak to people in an approachable way.
I currently work for a leading UK charity as an Information Writer & Editor and previously freelanced in design and writing roles for clients across the creative, civic, and charity sectors. I love working with big-hearted people & organisations who have environmental or social missions. They’re there to help people, to nudge the world forward, or to make life better. I simply help turn that vision into clear outputs and get their ideas to audiences in cohesive and engaging ways.
Aside from that, I make artworks and write stories that reflect on the things that shape our everyday. I trained in fashion originally and am interested in sustainable design, ethical practice, body politics, craft, DIY and our relationship with the material world.
My work here looks to dissect or challenge the status-quo in unassuming ways – using poetics, humour and other tools to offer gentle approaches into deeper topics. I create self-initiated and collaborative works that use textiles and image-making as their main vehicles of expression. I’ve also guest tutored at the University of the Arts London and write around fashion, craft and design online and for publications.
