Location: TorontoART DIRECTOR
WHO WE ARE
Life at Sid Lee is intense: A happy mix of passion, fun, sweat, and (a whole lot of) risk.
In fact, there’s only one thing we’re damn sure of: Status quo is boring. Predictable is boring. Boring is boring.
That’s why we surround ourselves with risk-takers, intellectuals, entrepreneurs, makers, pragmatists, creatives, insomniacs, storytellers, and leaders.
And that’s why we always encourage the riskiest ideas. Sometimes they come back to bite us, but oftentimes, they help us transform brands, markets, and clients – usually transforming us too along the way.
