Lee's design career began when he was a young boy, spending much of his time drawing his name in an 80's style chrome effect in areas of the school where it shouldn't have been drawn. After a number of meetings with seemingly ungrateful grounds-keepers, he progressed to designing logos for his father's business, which is where his interest in design was realised.
In 2002 Lee joined Propaganda as a freelancer. He walked through the doors as a Junior Designer on a one day placement, and thanks to his impeccable tea making skills has been there ever since. At Propaganda, Lee has played a key part in shaping the iconic and much copied look of ghd – and more recently Illamasqua – with his art direction, design and web work picking up a number of Roses and Fresh awards, including a Fresh Grand Prix.
Lee’s words and work have featured in a number of leading design books, magazines and blogs. Most recently, case studies of some of his projects were included in the best selling design books by Gavin Ambrose. Lee’s design work has also extended to TV, and an appearance on the hit Children’s BBC show ‘Beat the Boss’. On the show he helped the teams design crisp packaging and branding, and his broad Bradfordian accent confused the nation’s children.
Lee still enjoys writing his name in 80′s style chrome.
