The Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston is a contemporary art museum at the forefront of  identifying and showcasing the most important artists of our time. For their 2016 Gala invitation, I created a unique design that used a pattern and color treatment then reflected in various surprising and delightful decorative elements of the unusual party. The theme was “Disrupt the Gala,” and these patterns were introduced within the venue itself and thereby utilized to bring energy to each element of disruption.

Working with Leila is a great pleasure. She’s a highly creative, organized, and clear-thinking designer who is always conscious of the delicate balance between how a design looks and how a design works.

Leila has the kind of smarts that yield efficient work, great energy to the team, and beautiful results. It is truly a joy to work with her.

Leila is a very talented graphic designer. She knows how to balance aesthetic concerns and the needs of the client. The design process was a true collaboration and uncommonly successful. I also appreciated her sense of humor and enthusiasm.
