Lee Goater’s Faces

Lee Goater's Faces Leeds Marvellous digital marketing agency

Faces is an interactive exhibition created by Leeds creative institution Lee Goater, exploring a seemingly endless combination of facial combinations. We were lucky enough to attend the opening of Faces in Leeds earlier this year, since then it’s gone on to be displayed at the Mitte in Barcelona as well as pop up in the form of t-shirts, posters and stickers. There’s even an app to help create your own face using Lee’s templates.

We love design

We’re at home on the virtual realm, but we’ve also produced some lovely print work of our own. We worked on an elegant brochure (and helped write) for Ponderis, as well as a fun poster and sticker pack as a takeaway for the eCommerce Expo 2014.

We’ve been nominated for two design awards this year for sites we created for The Courtyard Dairy and Ponderis.
