Hi, my name is Leon Hale and I am a specialist design & print consultant, Based in Weymouth, Dorset. I started my journey when I was 15 fulfilling the creative needs of friends and family. Designing logos, websites, animations, posters, business cards, both small and large projects.

After leaving school, I studied at Weymouth College for 3 years. Interactive media & 3d animation for games and video, throughout my years at Weymouth college I advanced my skills and developed a keen eye for detail. alongside this, I was putting my skills to the test and approaching businesses and enquiring whether they had any demand for design.

In the closing months of college, I began to work for a specialist printing and precision laser cutting facility called Fourdot. Fourdot was a specialist custom designer number plate manufacturer. This further tested and strengthened my skills in design and taught me print processes and large format printing and cutting. I had training on a large format precision laser cutter and Zund Cutter all with camera recognition.

Shortly after Fourdot was brought out by a large point of sales company, Luminati was a leading specialist in acrylic displays. we became their print facility. working with displays and packaging for mainstream companies like; New look, Microsoft, Mc-Larren, KFC, Subaru. I worked both in production and on some design, projects supplying high-quality sketches, 3d renders, cad drawings, mock-up models, finished prototypes, packaging and more.

After 2 years at fourdot I decided that I wanted to leave and start something of my own I already had been doing freelance projects when I could for friends and family building up a client base and some recognition. I already had Design-Showcase to showcase my work so I decided to rebrand the website and all social media and change everything to form a new look and feel for Design-Showcase

Thank You for taking the time to read my story about how I got here and formed Design-Showcase.
