Coen van Leeuwen is a London based visual designer, a conceptual thinker which is reflected in a strong combination of classic methodology and innovative design. He uses the same philosophy in life as in design: it should be practical and gorgeous, while questioning daily-life in order to create refreshing new initiatives. While strongly believing that brilliant ideas come from collaborations, he enjoys discussing design as well as the way the world goes round. Being passionate about what he does makes him a perfectionist with an ambitious sense of persistency.
