About Mark Leeds:
"My first real job was for the Guardian and Observer's Development Department designing a range of editorial, marketing and advertising projects, becoming its Art Director in 2001. My particular passion was the editorial work – I worked closely with Mark Porter on special projects for the Guardian such as the bi-annual Fashion Handbook – and with the Observer on its special edition magazines. I left in 2003 to travel and worked with James de Vries at his Sydney design studio. Returning in 2004 I joined Mark Porter, Richard Turley and Michael Booth on the Guardian newspaper 'Berliner' redesign. In 2009 I set out on my own as a design consultant working with a range of clients. Last year was exciting, redesigning Bloomberg Businessweek with Richard Turley, Courrier International with Mark Porter, and the Financial Times Weekend Magazine. I have an ongoing role as creative consultant for the FT and am currently redesigning a literary magazine.
