About Léon Borrack
Léon Borrack was born in Melbourne in 1972 and
grew up in a rural environment north of the city. His father is an
artist, his mother is a textile designer and his brother is a musician.
He became the black sheep of the family by pursuing a career in engineering.
Awarded an Aerospace Engineering degree from RMIT in 1993, Léon
set off to change the world of aircraft design. Although there were
few opportunities to do just that in Australia, he did realise early
on that he had a natural affinity for communication and business
not shared by most engineers.
Working for Honeywell in 1995, he relocated to Albuquerque, USA
to assist in the development phase of a large military project. From
here his engineering career grew to span engineering management,
subcontract management and project management. At various times living
in Australia, USA and the UK he has worked with companies based across
Asia, Europe and North America. Above all else, broad international
exposure taught him the effectiveness of good communication.
A yearning to pursue a more creative career persisted. For many
years Léon involved himself in graphic design projects for community
groups. In 2005, whilst living in Melbourne again, he completed
a course of study in Graphic Design at Shillington College.
From his studios in Melboune and Gisborne, he now brings his unique mix of skills
and experience to the commercial world of graphic design and web
