Leah in a few words

Leah Sands is a graphic designer and illustrator that sprung from the fine arts. Drawing since she could pick up a pencil and later developing a love for painting and screen printing, art has been a constant companion to her design practice. Leah’s passion lies in bridging the gap between fine arts and graphic design, applying the artistic nuances of form, content and color to the complexity of design — using grids, symbolism and client collaboration. She loves working on projects that ask deeper questions and aim to gently teach its viewer something about themselves or the world.
