I'm Leon Lieffijn, a 22-year-old autodidactic digital product designer, musician and entrepreneur from Amsterdam, the Netherlands. In 2011, at the age of 15, I founded my own design enterprise and started working for a range of clients, both at home as abroad. After graduating from high school in 2015 I founded Ferza, an allround creative agency with a focus on artificial intelligence, with two friends, while continuing to work as a freelancer. Throughout the years I have worked for clients like Mastercard, Google, Albert Heijn and ABN AMRO and collaborated with companies like the University of Amsterdam (UvA) and the Dutch Postal Service (PostNL) via Ferza.
Aiming to make a difference through my creativity, I have also been active in other creative fields, including the field of music. Inspired by Michael W. Smith and bands like Coldplay and Dire Straits I started writing songs at a young age and taught myself how to play several instruments. In 2014 I released my first instrumental EP, ‘On Eagle’s Wings’, followed by the critically acclaimed instrumental ‘Choices’ in 2016. As of 2018 I started to focus more on pop/rock music instead of only instrumental songs with the release of the single ‘To Be Near You’, which now has over 150,000 streams across platforms. More information about my musical career can be found here.
Aside from my freelance work I have also been employed by companies like Dolfinarium and AthenaStudies, where I had lead roles. I’m currently working as freelancer.
