Dawn Leigh LEADER
Hi there! I am a multidisciplinary, multi-media designer & illustrator. I'm also a chef, taxi, nurse, house keeper, gardening nut, prior baseball coach, baseball card collector, kisser of boo-boo's, lover of sports, mother of 5 amazing kids, plus a MiMi to my bubbly granddaughter & a believer! I grew up in Texas City, Texas and attended college over a period of 15 years, while raising a family. I studied graphic design, business & fine art. Found a love a creating, drawing & painting on anything, from a very early age. My dear Mom spins a tale about the mural behind the clothing in our walk in closet!
My story is pretty much like every other kid that grew up in the 80's: Saturday morning
Scooby Do, softball summers, MTV & music crazed kid, Dr. Pepper fan, lived to dress up
for Halloween, riding my bike everywhere, hanging with friends at the skate rink or the
pool, playing with my pets and weekends in Galveston with my sisters and Mom.
Spent quite a bit of time with my grandparents too, learning that quality is always more
important than quantity. Those early experiences have influenced my work and life
greatly. If you didn't already know that I'm huge geek at heart, you will after browsing
through some of my work.
As the founder & creative director, I bring 20 years of creative obsession to Rhythm &
Hues Design Studio. I am passionate about bringing client goals to life, and champion
the success of every project with great excitement. A fine art & digital designer that loves
to create beautiful, effective branding for both print & the web.
