Our multidisciplinary teams leverage the power of radical collaboration to build brands for the modern age, activating communication platforms to engage with today’s consumers across all possible touchpoints.

Sid Lee is also at the origin of C2 Montréal, one of the largest innovation events in the world, and is part of kyu, a new collective of creative companies established by Hakuhodo DY Holdings, the second-largest agency network in Asia.

Unfortunately (or fortunately), talent isn’t the only thing we’re looking for. We also like to surround ourselves with the bold, caring, progressive, and persevering types. You know, the curious ones who take on impossible challenges and see their ideas through to fruition, and the entrepreneurs-at-heart who aren’t afraid of failure. They’re the artisans who make our collective kinder, stronger, and more purposeful.

THE ROLE

The senior designer is responsible for delivering against a wide range of design mandates in a multidisciplinary environment.

On occasion, they will collaborate with architects, industrial designers and UX designers to apply concepts across non-traditional media. The senior designer will oversee the day-to-day running of various design mandates and participate in new business pitches when required.
