Doug says:

Ji Lee is the founder of the reknowned 'Bubble Project', which started 6 years ago. Borne from frustration at corporate advertising agencies, Lee printed and applied 50,000 renegade speech bubbles to street advertisements in New York and other cities around the world. Passersby would then fill the bubbles with musings and Lee would photograph the results and post them on the Bubble Project website.

Presently, working as a creative director at Google Creative Lab, Lee's job is to promote many Google products and Google brand to the world. Lee continues to work as an independent artist, designer, illustrator and teacher. Lee likes to maintain the delicate balance between professional and personal projects, which he believes compliment each other.

  1. Borne from frustration at corporate advertising agencies…

    …Lee’s job is to promote many Google products and Google brand to the world.

    Gotta love the irony. (Not that I’m judging- I’m a designer myself. We all gotta eat!)

  2. I hate to be a pedant, but the word is “complement,” not “compliment.” I am slowly turning this quest for correct usage into a life mission. I think reading the Red Camera Manual, rife with this specific misuse, pushed me over the edge.

  3. JAI808, BB doesn’t fix typos in quotes.

    There’s a fair chance Doug will be at Bumble and Bumble, 3rd floor auditorium, 415 West 13th Street, New York, NY, on the 24th of September (a Thursday, I believe)..

    If you can make it to New York, you may get a chance to fix this injustice.

    Good luck in your quest, Her Majesty’s 12th Correct Usage Fusiliers stand behind you.
