Los Angeles, CA—Seattle and Los Angeles-based Ad Agency WONGDOODY has hired Dennis Lee as Associate Creative Director. Lee will work out of the Los Angeles office, and will develop creative initiatives for clients including Scion, VIZIO and Epson, working closely with ECD Pam Fujimoto.
Prior to joining WONGDOODY, Lee was Associate Creative Director at Ogilvy & Mather, Los Angeles, where he worked on accounts that included HTC, CISCO, AM/PM, Tabasco, South Park, Qualcomm and Nesquik. During his previous six-year tenure at WONGDOODY, he contributed to several projects for ESPN College GameDay, ESPN2, ESPYs, Autodesk, Epson, Carl’s Jr. and Mercury Insurance. He started his career as a Junior Art Director at Ogilvy & Mather, NY working on IBM, Motorola, Miller Lite and Sprite, after which a move to Young & Rubicam, Irvine brought him back to the southland to work on the Land Rover account. Lee is an alumni of Art Center College of Design, and in addition to an active agency career, he has been teaching portfolio classes in Art Direction for almost seven years.
“WONGDOODY has always felt like family, and that really sets it apart from the rest of the agency world. I have huge admiration for Tracy and consider him a professional mentor. Pam is a fellow Art Center alum, an all-around amazing creative, and I’m really excited to be working with her,” said Lee. “I’m happy to be back at WONGDOODY and really looking forward to contributing as part of the new creative team here in LA — plus I get to wear shorts and my basketball shoes every day!”
“Dennis Lee is 6’4”, and is as passionate about the work as he is tall. What he lacks in subtlety, he more than makes up for in creative chops. He is a big part of the soul of the office, and we are ecstatic to have him back on board,” said Tracy Wong, Co-Founder, WONGDOODY.
