Hello! My name is Leena and I am a graphic designer in Toronto. I was fortunate enough to know exactly what I wanted to do as a career from a young age, which is to make beautiful things. I love art and design is my passion, but early on in my graphic design career, I realized that something was missing. I wanted the opportunity to be truly creative and improve lives. I wanted to be challenged and I wanted to do what I love – and get paid for it.
So I turned to freelancing, which is what I’ve been doing since 2013. I’ve met many brilliant people and gained so many new skills since then. I love learning and helping my clients find solutions through graphic design.
When I’m not freelancing, you’ll often find me advocating on subjects around technology, branding and health and wellness. I love practicing yoga with my husband and studying Japanese in my spare time.
Now that you know more about me, tell me about you!
