Lenay Johnson is a creative director based in Brooklyn, New York. 

Hello! Great to meet you. I am an experienced creative director and brand storyteller. My expertise lies in transforming startup and mid-level e-commerce environments into high-end, luxury mainstay brands.  With over 13 years in the industry, I have production and leadership experience in luxury brand development, editorial and go-to-market strategy and execution by season, large-scale studio and lifestyle photography direction and production, editorial narrative and e-commerce copywriting, and inspiring healthy teams.

I am currently open to a full-time role in creative direction, art direction, or editorial (copy) with the right company.
