A few years ago I was having drinks with some friends when one of them couldn’t open her bottle of juice. She was having a real struggle, so me and my friends were looking at her in great amusement.
When we’ve been laughing long enough, I sighed and took the bottle from her. “Ohhh, just leave it to the lesbian”, I joked and opened the bottle for her.
We immediately heard ‘Leave it to the Lesbian’ had a certain ring to it.
It wasn’t until a year later that I used the name for a fashion label. I designed a logo and waited for orders to come in.
I have many talents, but enjoying marketing isn’t one of them. I have more fun in coming up with the texts and designing them. In short, selling clothes just isn’t something I want to do.
Another year later I found myself restyling my website, using the same name and logo: Leave It To The Lesbian.
So what can you leave to me, then? Other than opening bottles, that is.
Well, Leave it to the Lesbian…
- 2 present (specialised in strategic visual communication)
- 2 lead creative projects (like making magazines)
- 2 design
- 2 write
- 2 photograph
- 2 make videos
And something that seems to be unrelated, but has to do with my love for teaching and foreign languages (I speak Dutch, English, French and Spanish): I’m an English teacher.
Here on this site you’ll find a few examples of my work, with more to come.
