JUNIOR ACCOUNT DIRECTOR

Who are we? We are creative brand builders for the modern age. Sid Lee is a multidisciplinary creative team of 600 professionals working globally for top-tier clients from our Montreal, Paris, Toronto and Los Angeles ateliers. 

What do we believe?  We believe that organizations, individuals, and even societies depend, now, more than ever on creativity to flourish.  Creativity in our view is a by-product of the diversity that emerges by eliminating boundaries between disciplines and cultures; business and art.  In our view, companies that recognize this and come to appreciate and master creativity will outperform those that master operations and innovation.  Our mission as artisans and professionals is to help companies recognize and unleash the commercial power of creativity. 

What do we do? Sid Lee conceives brand experiences (products, services and spaces) and communicates them through branding, advertising, interactive and experiential marketing.  We call this integrated multidisciplinary approach “commercial creativity.”
