Pronouns: They, them, theirs

Leland is a queer non-binary designer, illustrator, printmaker, risograph nerd, studio manager, and organizer. They love the intersection of empathy and design practice and totally reject the idea that print is dead. They’re super passionate about social justice, intersectionality, accessibility, and the ways creative and educational spaces can offset oppression, process trauma, and elevate marginalized voices—in design and in the world at large. Leland currently works as the studio manager @outletpdx, freelances in their spare time, and eats lots of fries.
