NICE TO MEET YOU
Hi! My name is Leonie Markhorst. I'm a Dutch freelance Creative Consultant currently based in Berlin, Germany.
My background is in Communications, Marketing & Business Development, but it wasn't until 2011 that I acknowledged my creative side. After moving to Vancouver, Canada, I decided to use my spare time to practice photography and start my own fashion blog.
While working as the Marketing & Business Development Manager for a biomedical firm, I continued with the blog and doing creative projects, which helped me to further develop my photography, editing & (graphic) design skills. In late 2014 I completed my first (re)branding gig: the launch of my new blog 'NOA NOIR'.
A few months later I moved to Berlin. Through the blog I had already collaborated with various international brands for their campaigns, but once I started receiving requests from companies whether I could create content for them, I took it as a sign to start my own freelance business.
What I love most about working as a Creative Consultant is that I get to combine strategy with creativity while building relationships with inspiring fellow entrepreneurs.
