My name is Leah Dankertson (Dank·ert·son) and I am a creative freelancer based out of Seattle. I have over 10 years of experience in art, design, and photography.

I’ve had the privilege to work with such fine folks as Amazon.com, Fonté Coffee Roasters, The Northwest Symphony Orchestra, and University Book Store and have had my work featured in such fine publications as  Seattle Magazine and Wine Spectator.  I love working with people and brands that are passionate about the story they have to tell, who love the collaboration process as much as I do, and are eager to take bold and creative chances.

Outside of the “office” you’ll find me drinking way too many americanos, cooking dinners for friends, singing at the top of my lungs while sitting in traffic, being Jimmy Fallon’s #1 fan, dreaming of the next place I want to travel, and thinking of more art I could be making.

The Learning Curve

The Learning Curve

The last time I wrote a Freelance Life post I had left you guys at the bottom of a metaphorical pit. Erm…sorry about that. To be completely honest, that’s where I had found myself at the time.  In a pit of my own making – endlessly comparing myself to other freelancers and artists who had…

The Story of the Pit…

The Story of the Pit…

Today I thought I’d tell you a little story… Once upon a time there was a humble freelancer named Pixel. Pixel wakes up one day to her alarm.  She presses the snooze button once…er…okay…two times (but who’s counting, right?).  Today she jumps out of bed, bright, eager, and ready to take on the day and…
