Need A Designer?

October 1999, London, was when Lee studied at Central St Martins in Graphic Design & Communication. A two week work experience placement at GQ mens magazine in his 2nd year, and all his student loan spent on coffee’s for the art team, meant it lasted a lot longer and lead him straight from university into the world of magazines.

He’s worked on luxury and lifestyle brands like GQ, Elle, Tatler and InStyle over a 14 year career in publishing, becoming an experienced Art Director & Creative Designer. Taking on the Digital Art Director role while at Tatler, he took 2D print designs, and creatively turned them into interactive engaging fun experiences on tablets and mobiles. Lee loved the challenge, but it also subconsciously started an itch which inevitably was going to be scratched into the digital design world.

In 2016, he bravely went back to college and passed with distinction a Digital & Web Design course. This strengthened his previous experience on digital and web design projects he had ventured on in his spare time with other brands.

His love for the design process and finished product is a rush and a journey, something he never wants to lose. Creating from nothing, that will be around for people to see is incredibly rewarding. But with no ego, his passion is design and the relationships he builds with people along the way. Getting lost, making mistakes, mistakes leading into ideas, and the finished, beautifully polished end results never gets boring! Some clients have even become friends – bonus!

My name is Lee Pears. Yes, like the fruit. And thank you for reading.

His positive and cheerful working style made him immensely popular with the team, from the highest to the lowest.”

When I’d meet people who needed something designing I’d find myself saying “why don’t we sit down one afternoon and chat about design to see what we can do” Never did I think it would one day become a name.

I’ve had the sincere pleasure of working with Lee since the beginning of 2011. He’s diligent, has the all-important art director’s eye, and can communicate effectively even as deadlines loom. I hope we can work together for a long time.
