Karin van den Brandt and Alex Clay
Lesley Moore is the brainchild of Karin van den Brandt (Blerick, The Netherlands) and Alex Clay (Lørenskog, Norway). Since studying at the Arnhem Academy of the Arts (now ArtEZ) their careers have been intertwined. Early cooperations include the design for the Academy’s magazine ‘De Kunsten’. After graduating they worked together at Dutch agency De Designpolitie, before founding Lesley Moore in 2004.
Lesley Moore’s work is driven by a minimalistic urge. This mentality can be detected on various levels in their work, but first and foremost in the conceptual phase of the creative process. Projects by Lesley Moore include the LM logo machine, re-design of Mark Magazine, visual column Gorilla, and visual identities for Centraal Museum, Wilfried Lentz Rotterdam and the Dutch National Opera & Ballet.
Lesley Moore has it’s daily practice in a dockside warehouse in Amsterdam Noord.
