Brand Identity & Creative Direction

Design is limitless and has applications in any industry. I enjoy taking on projects that challenge me to explore the intersection of art and function. Whether it's creating marketing materials for an event, or designing the aesthetic and interiors of a new international restaurant, my skills in research, analysis and strategy have helped to enhance my design potential.

Product & UX Design

As part of the Civic Eagle founding team and as its Product Designer, I am exploring innovative ways to design for civic technology. This not only involves how to produce our product, Eagle App, enjoyable and usable, but also requires me to think about how our users experience the Civic Eagle brand. I manage all design elements of the company's brand - print, web and mobile - and I am constantly investigating ways of creating better user experiences.

Photography

I love design, but photography is my passion. I began my creative career by establishing Lesley Adé Photography, a contemporary fine art wedding and lifestyle photography studio, in 2012. Capturing moments of love and life led me to expanding my work in travel photography. As an avid world traveler, a camera never leaves my side, even if the only lens that I have on me is attached to my iPhone 6S Plus!
