Nico Leonard

Nico completed the Bachelor of Communication (Media) program at RMIT before continuing as an Honours student and graduating in 2008. Since graduating Nico has divided his time between working in an administrative position at RMIT and travelling throughout Europe, Asia and North America.

His honours project involved the creation of a folio of graphic novels, published online and in print, as an exploration of how online media has changed the comic book medium and how creators, publishers and audiences can take advantage of such developments.

In the short term Nico's career objectives are to build his experience in publishing through working in the industry while continuing to develop his art and graphic novel folio. In the long term he plans to complete a program of Masters study in graphic design with a view to working in the comic book industry as an editor, writer and designer. Nico's areas of expertise include: comic books, bookbinding, graphic design, storyboarding, scriptwriting and media production.
