Tanner Ashton Leslie

I am a renegade millennial pursuing a BFA in graphic design at James Madison University, minoring in studio art: photography.

Born and raised in Portland, Maine. 

I've been obsessively observant for as long as I can remember. Not easily satisfied, always hunting for the new, and forever addicted to good black coffee. Design gets you places, makes you think, changes the world sometimes. Good design startles, affects, lasts. A harmony between aesthetic and purpose. 

Weniger, aber besser. Get Slung. 

Inspirations: Paul Rand. Aaron Draplin. Rem Koolhaas. Paula Scher. Massimo Vignelli.
