Leslie Benson is an award-winning graphic designer who lives in Rockwall, Texas. We met a couple years ago through Hearts at Home, a mutual client, and have collaborated on a few projects since then. Leslie was recently in central Illinois for the Hearts at Home National Conference in Bloomington/Normal and took an afternoon to come by the studio in Lincoln. She's in the process of redesigning her website, so this was the perfect time to update her headshot and branding images for her new site.
When I asked Leslie what kind of look she wanted to portray, she told me, "Creative, trustworthy, and professional." We spent nearly five hours working on her portraits at the studio as well as at a building in downtown Lincoln with a lot of character.
Today I'm posting some of the images that I think would work well on Leslie's forthcoming site. I'll show more images from her session in three follow-up posts.
Leslie does terrific corporate branding and annual report design. I hope you'll check her out.
Want to work with Leslie? I think she'd like that.
