Active since 2014, Leonardo Ruiz, born in Bogotá, Colombia and currently living in Milan, Italy, works bringing together illustration, animation and graphic design, both for personal pleasure and to communicate clients' ideas. He has collaborated with many brands, big and small, always with a clear goal in mind: to reach out to new audiences through the power of visual storytelling. 

Most of his inspiration comes from pop culture, nature, music, literature and animation masterpieces. Often working next to a cup of coffee and listening to a lo-fi hip hop beat, he values his creative process the most. His personal projects are like a playground where rules don't exist. He strives for exploring every possibility and not limiting himself to a single style.

Leo is one of the best creative talents I have had the pleasure to work with. From concepts to design and motion grahics, he always delivers well beyond the brief. 
I worked with Leo across a number of years and countries on motion design and digital art direction projects. He always pushes the creative quality further. I can’t recommend Leonardo highly enough.

Leonardo consistently demonstrated a high level of responsibility and commitment to delivering top-quality motion graphics across a variety of projects and clients. His creativity and attention to detail were evident in every project. I highly recommend Leo for his professionalism and creative abilities.

I had the pleasure of working with Leo in a high-profile online production. His Motion Graphics work truly stood out for its bespoke craftsmanship and quality. He understood the assignment from the very beginning and came back to us with a wide variety of interesting solutions.

If you're looking for someone to infuse creativity and warmth into your project, Leo is your guy.
He's also very reliable and, last but not least, he can be professional and friendly at the same time.
