Look Up To The Sky, Work Down To The Ground
The dress up of Tian Tian is a reflection of Leo' s design attitude — To imagine yet practice hard. The "pulse" on the chest illustrates the bouncing energy and rhythm found in his works.
To design in a smart and simplistic way is the philosophy behind Leo's graphic works. He believes a punchy solution should be digestible and clever. The aid of solid typographic skill and aesthetic will make the works taste even right.
