Born and raised just outside Birmingham, Leigh developed his eye for colour and interest in design from an early age. His design career began shortly after graduating from the Royal College of Art in London in 2000. Leigh worked as a freelance knitted textile designer selling to Calvin Klein, Levi, Nicole Fahri, Eddie Bauer, Milk, Woolmark to name just a few.

Following his textiles design career working in both fashion and interiors, he now shares his passion for colour and textiles as a lecturer at the renowned Glasgow School of Art. In 2012 Leigh decided to launch his print company, eager to develop his interests in rich abstract graphic print design he produced his first collection of Limited Edition Prints. His work was instantly coveted by leading architecture and interior design companies and much sort after by private clients.

Design Milk a leading online design blog described Leigh’s prints as “some of most fun and vibrant geometric prints I’ve seen” whilst other press described “ in all seriousness, the colour palette, the lines {and in the flesh, they are totally stunning} the sense of drama that you get when you view the designs, lend themselves perfectly to the male interiors and gift market, that oh so tricky present now becomes less so..”

My creative process starts with colour – I’m slightly obsessed! I’ve always been interested in how other people perceive colour and use it in their own environments. My prints explore interactions of colour through geometric composition, each one meticulously planned, every hue, proportion, saturation and opacity of colour is considered.

My work is hugely inspired by modernism, the Bauhaus, minimal ceramics, architecture and interiors, designs have been purchased by global architectural firms as they are ideally suited to minimalist interiors. I have been commissioned to create one-off pieces for a variety of private clients but would love to work on a design project or to collaborate with Alessi or Marc Newson, whilst my design heroes are Charley Harper, Hella Jongerius and Dieter Rams.
