About me

Educated at Central St Martins in Graphic Design & Communication, with a background in publishing, Creative designer Lee Pears is an experienced Art Director & Designer making a move from print towards digital. He has worked in magazines since leaving St Martins fourteen years ago. Tatler was the last publication he worked with taking on the role of both deputy and acting art director, as required. There he took the opportunity to art direct the monthly interactive iPad edition, a challenge he embraced and found his love for digital. This raised some interesting questions about his future in print so he completed a year course in Digital & Web Design which took him right back to his roots when he was at Saint Martins. He had an amazing time designing branding, UX & UI, web banners, websites, learning about image optimisation, and all the SEO that make Google happy when designing and launching your website. Armed now with his vast experience across all medias and his love for creating beautiful design, ONEAFTERNOON was born!

Branding

This is probably the most important area of design. If you don’t get this right at the start emulating your brands identity, look and feel, your company might not grow as big as your vision holds. Clean, clever, strong and current are areas I always like to tick the boxes in when designing logos to cover a whole range of branding. If it’s fussy, it’s frustrating in my eyes. And no one wants to feel frustrated when they look at your brand. An overwhelming feeling of confidence, a little smile or something, just incredibly satisfying on the eye is always what I try and get out of my designs.

UX & UI DESIGN

Now this is where the fun really begins. Emerging your audience into something so engaging they don’t want to leave is the top goal here. Good colours to brand, beautiful imagery and an ease of navigation and use, just fills the user with all the right stimulation to keep them engaged with your site. Slow loading, complicated navigation, busy, too many colours, the wrong fonts, too many fonts as well as bad imagery will send you, the user, running. And that’s not what we want now do we!

WEB DESIGN

Clean navigation, limited colours, beautiful imagery, the right typography and modern animations on trend make designing websites a real passion. When you get it right, it just all works and that feeling is exciting to aim for.

I always used to say to people I’d meet “why don’t we sit down one afternoon and chat about design to see what we can do” Then it dawned on me, what a clever use of words to put together as a name. It looks good as a set of letters typographically and rolls off the tongue easily. I just love that it can be used in a sentence meaning something completely different to my name. Like it’s secretly always been there without you knowing it.

WEB BANNER DESIGN

Web banners play a strong visual and informative way of advertising your brand, product or up and coming event. Powerful imagery with clear typography entices the user to make that all important ‘click’ to understand the curiosity behind the banner.

ART DIRECTION & PRINT

Creating ideas and bringing them together with people can be a challenge. But a worthwhile
one when you can produce some amazing shoots by the end of the day.
It’s those little unpredictable gems you capture on film that make it all worth while for me. Here is some of my work…

IT’S REALLY NICE TO HEAR WHAT PEOPLE HAVE TO SAY ABOUT YOU, WHEN YOU’RE JUST BEING, YOU!

Antony Hare

I’ve had the sincere pleasure of working with Lee since the beginning of 2011. He’s diligent, has the all-important art director’s eye, and can communicate effectively even as deadlines loom. I hope we can work together for a long time.

Lee is a confident and passionate art director. When leading a shoot he always brings loads of ideas to the table, and works really well as part of a creative team.
