Owner, Creative Director, Producer
In a career shaped by immersion in the creative sectors, Leslee Schaffer started FCS Creative as Full Circle Services in 2002 after six years of managing the LA-based production company TR&Partners and its affiliate, Interactive Multimedia Artists. She has since partnered with a variety of businesses, non-profits, artists, executives, and entrepreneurs in support of their public presence, special events, structure and organization, growth challenges, and general success.
As consulting executive director of the San Diego Architectural Foundation from 2005-2013, Leslee piloted its revitalization after two decades of dormancy. She has conceived of, produced, planned, promoted, and hosted hundreds of programs and events including series such as Designing Minds, Inside the Design Studio, Orchids & Onions, PechaKucha Night, design tours, films screenings and festivals; one-off exhibitions Public Art Matters and Orchids, Onions & Opportunities; and 25 Years of the Casbah, an anniversary celebration of San Diego's iconic music venue.
Aligned with her comprehensive approach, Leslee has developed websites for a host of individuals, organizations, and independent businesses—both fledgling and established. Her clients have appeared in print and online publications including ArchDaily, Architect Magazine, Coastal Home, Dezeen, Domus, Dwell, Hospitality Design, Hospitality Interiors, International Architecture & Design, Restaurant Design & Development, Wallpaper, World Architecture News, Modern Luxury/Riviera, San Diego Magazine, San Diego Home/Garden Lifestyles, and many more.
