Hello, 안녕! I’m Don Lee, an advertising art director / UX designer from South Korea, currently in New York City.

Since I was a kid, I've made new friends easily by drawing their caricatures. (Some drawings make my friends angry but most people really enjoyed them.) It provides me a broad spectrum of friends which made me grow both extrobert and introvert personality. I think it’s important when brands become humans, like nowadays.

As an art director I am an omnivore, I merge my absorption of up-to-date techniques with humanistic insights. I truly believe good creatives can change the world. Let me prove it. Join me!
