Faculty of Design
aka. 512, Advertising
“My name is Leah, but I also go by my brand name, 512. My whole life, I grew up going back and forth between my parent’s houses - the two of which were connected by the streetcar, the 512 streetcar. A lot of my skills and adaptability have come from always being a moving part between two points. Now more than ever, I see the power in communicating positivity and personal responsibility through art and design. At the end of the day (or virus, to be more relevant), I find it more than just getting the job done. Just like the 512 streetcar, its all about linking two things. Linking design and humanity to fuel an even bigger and brighter idea. Only then will we know what that idea can do.”
My name is Leah Meddaoui and I graduated OCADU with a Bachelors of Design in Advertising. In my final year of school, I was lucky enough to be selected as one of the top 10 “Masters” in my program for my thesis work. If I’m not hanging out with my dog, I am usually up to something creative (whether that be some kind of craft, on the computer, or picking up my camera to shoot). I have gained a lot of experience over the past 4 years through my various projects with clients on photography, videography and design work. I graduated school with the hopes of becoming an art director and am so excited for when that dream finally comes a reality.
