Hi, I’m Leysa. This is my story.
I’ve always been creative and intuitive with quick perceptive skills, making graphic design a natural and enjoyable career path for me.
My foundational years were spent working in the media industry as a designer. In fact, it ended up being more than 14 years. This industry experience, paired with my formal qualifications, gave me the tools and the confidence to establish my own design business in 2014.
I was initially driven by the desire for freedom. To work for myself, doing what I love, on my own terms and supported by my own values, such as integrity and wanting to be at home with my children. I felt a deep connection to my work and began to recognise this similar trait in others.
I believe people should have the freedom to do what they love and create a fulfilling life around their passion, so I set out to use my creative gifts to help these purpose-driven businesses achieve their dreams through intentional brand identity design.
I live in Albury, Australia, with my husband James, and our three young daughters. I love watching period dramas, making relaxing ambience videos for my YouTube channel: Balmy Cove, creating surface pattern designs and snuggling my cats Boris and Bonnie.
I’m inspired by minimalism, natural textures, illustrative lines, stormy skies, beautiful ambient soundscapes, slow period dramas, memories of my travel in the Middle East, classic literature and history.
"I loved the process that Leysa took me through to rethink how I was branding my small business. What started out as ‘just a few templates’ has provided so much value for how I think about positioning my business. Leysa asked the right questions to make me think differently and then presented final products that met the new vision. It was just such as worthwhile exercise at this point in my business journey."
— Melanie Gibbons, Elm Communications
"Working with Leysa was an amazing experience. From beginning to end, the whole design process was really a journey of discovery and appreciation of one’s abilities, with Leysa being both companion and guide."
— Rodney Ford, Ford Pipe Organ Builders
I was introduced to Leysa by my copywriter Tiffany Bonasera whose judgment I trusted implicitly. My trust was rewarded tenfold. Leysa has become an invaluable part of my team. Her design instincts and nous are top notch. Everyone who has seen my new website has said the same thing: your designer is amazing! I recommend Leysa with wholehearted openness and genuine interest in her continued success.
— Dr Kim Vella, Kim Vella Coaching
Leysa and I have worked together for a number of years on a diverse range of projects. What I love about working with Leysa is that she is totally unflappable. Whatever comes her way, she remains calm and willing to help. Her creative and thoughtful design work distinguishes brands.

I am incredibly fortunate to have been provided Leysa's contact details almost two years ago. Leysa's amazing talent took my business to another level by portraying the exact look and feel I expect my clients to easily engage with through the eloquent branding Leysa has designed.
I have no hesitation in recommending Leysa for all your graphic design needs, she can transform your ideas into reality and create something far more than you ever expected! My colleague worded it so well recently.... she said, ’Leysa nails it every time’!
Our brand is stunning, we receive compliments all the time. You won’t be disappointed.

A ringing endorsement for Leysa from Banksia Village, Banksia Lodge and Banksia Community Care! Leysa has worked with us on the production of our last two annual reports and other design projects, and we have been delighted with the results. She is a total professional — absolutely client focused, always meets deadlines, and really flexible. Because Leysa really listens to what we want, and has taken time to understand our audience and culture, her unique and very sensitive design flair has strongly captured and enhanced the themes and qualities we have wanted to communicate. Very happy to recommend her!
— Catherine MacGregor, Banksia Villages

We were recommended to engage Leysa Flores as our graphic designer to create a new logo for our business. Right from the outset Leysa provided us with a clear step-by-step procedure on how to go about creating a brand image that best represents us and what we do.
She was quick to reply, offered many more options than other graphic designers I spoke with, and was patient with my indecision and helpful with answers and options.
Professional to deal with, friendly and easy to ask questions – I highly recommend Leysa.
— Amanda Giblin, Giblin Construction Group
Leysa rebranded my business including creating a new logo, stationary and website, and I am absolutely thrilled with the results.
She has the rare ability to understand exactly what your vision is (even if you're like me and can't articulate it yourself!) Leysa made the whole process very smooth and easy. I love how fresh and modern my branding is and would highly recommend Leysa Flores Design to anyone wanting to update their business. It's the best move you'll make to put yourself ahead of your competitors!
