Freelance Art Director & Graphic Designer
Born and raised on a Central Wisconsin Dairy Farm, I am a true product of the locally sourced mentality. The caliber of my work is fresh and meaty (a.k.a. good bones), my ideas are rooted in that solid base of compostable material that regenerates into just the right flavor…you get the idea. I've traveled and lived elsewhere but have always been drawn back to Wisconsin…now living and working as a freelance art director and designer in Milwaukee. While the majority of my work focuses on the chocolate industry, I have plenty of play in other realms, as you will see in my body of work. Please give me a shout if you are interested in working with me!

“Having worked with Lisa for over two years, I cannot say enough about Lisa and her ability to design and create amazing work. Lisa did all of our packaging design at The Cholive Company as well as designing all our sales literature, our promotional pieces and basically anything that needed "an eye" and I couldn't have been more impressed. Not only is Lisa an incredible designer, she is also a fantastic person and someone I appreciated working with every day. Lisa is direct, to the point, understanding, an incredibly hard worker and beyond dedicated to the work she does. If I ever have another project, I am going to call Lisa immediately.”

“[During] my tenure at The Cholive Company I had the pleasure to work closely with Ms. Leick. Lisa worked tirelessly as our in house Senior Designer, Art Director, Chocolate Adviser and anything else we needed from her - often times even our best sales representative. Her level of commitment to a product she helped bring to fruition was insurmountable. Her accomplishments and determination as well as work ethic allowed a small chocolate company to reach incredible heights! Even after the company was forced to close its doors, Lisa wrote and published a timeless keepsake- Cholive: A Retrospective on an Olive-Shaped Confection. It would be my pleasure to endorse her and hopefully one day work with her again as she truly inspires me!”
