ABOUT LEÃO

We are a creative agency based in the beautiful, sunny Los Angeles, California. Our work has taken us all over the world, including to Paris, Toronto, New York City, Austin, Seattle, and of course San Francisco. We have made VR experiences, commercials, and videos for companies like Microsoft, Häagen-Dazs, and Marriott Rewards. Our work has been featured on CNN, NBC, MTV, The Today Show, Good Morning America, and been written up in TechCrunch, The Verge, Huffington Post, New York Daily News, and more.

COMMERCIALS

Whether you need a TV spot or a pre-roll ad, we know what it takes to make your brand stand out.

VIRTUAL REALITY

Creating VR (or “360º”) experiences is a fantastic way to captivate your audience. We are one of just a handful of companies that have proven we can do it.

VIDEOS

Maybe you’re looking for an explainer, an “about” video, or you want to create a branded web series— whatever it is, we’re your guys and gals.

CONSULTANCY

If you’re not ready for the end-to-end service we’re known for, we would be happy to help you develop your project, branding, messaging, or marketing plan.

Max

Max

Founder & Creative Director

Max is an award-winning Creative Director and Director who founded Leão in 2010 with one simple goal: to deliver big agency quality at a fraction of the price and speed. In 2018, he won the Webby Award for Best Viral Video and the Gold Telly for Use of Humor in Online Commercials. When he’s not working on the next viral video, Max can be found working on his passion projects, drinking cold brew, or eating breakfast tacos in Highland Park.
