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.
