Leta is originally from the rural Catskill region of upstate New York. In 2010, she graduated with a BFA
(Magna Cum Laude) in graphic design from Purchase College and earned the Dean’s Award in Art+Design. During her studies, she completed several impressive internships, earning invaluable experiences and building vital industry contacts with executives from Fila, Nylon Magazine, Athletics, and Ogilvy & Mather. Another internship with HunterGatherer led to full-time employment well before she graduated. There, she began as a junior designer and moved into animation via stop motion, contributing to major campaigns such as Prius Goes Plural and re:form school. In May of 2012, BNS
proudly welcomed her as a staff designer in its NYC
studio; the honeymoon continues!
