Leanne formed the imaginatively named Franks studio in 2012 armed with a degree in Graphic and Communication Design from the University of Leeds and experience working as both an in-house designer and as part of a creative team. She specialises in branding but likes to foray into all corners of design with some solid experience in art direction, packaging design, web and print design. She has also dipped her toe into the world of design education as a sessional lecturer at the University of Creative Arts, Kent. Here she taught branding practises to undergraduate marketing and communications students.
Passionate about typography, she spends her free time sign painting, having fallen in love with the traditional practice whilst staying in Texas. A keen traveller she explores new countries through their signs and typography.
She always aims to bring carefully considered design that will set brands apart from the crowd and, believing that collaboration is the magic word, she now employs the expertise of handpicked web developers, illustrators, photographers and social media experts to bring a full creative package to her clients. She doesn’t do rush jobs, she doesn’t just churn things out and she certainly doesn’t paint by numbers.
Oh and she likes to hang with woodland creatures in her spare time.
