 WHO WE ARE

In an era in which brands compete with pop culture for attention, we can no longer rely on conventional communication approaches, nor can we simply deploy them across more channels. For this reason, Sid Lee creates innovative consumer experiences — experiences that create more moments of truth across the consumer journey. We do this by thinking about holistic brand platforms rather than campaigns; organizing ideas that guide how a brand comes to life in behavior, not just message, in the real world. To drive this forward, we have put one of most multidisciplinary creative teams in the world, spanning architecture branding, branded content, digital, industrial design, live experiences and advertising to the power of business strategy with a strong socio-cultural bent. This approach has enabled us to create work charged with the power to shape consumer behavior, not just talk at them.

This approach demands world-class talent with the ability to think holistically. At Sid Lee, we give our artisans singular opportunities to work with leading brands to create the future, not just tweak the past. We call them artisans because the label suggests the notions of artistry and craft that we expect in our work.

Based out of our Montreal, Amsterdam, Paris, Toronto and New York offices, our team has won over 300 international awards, reflecting the quality of its work. These efforts have been recognized by Advertising Age, which declared us a runner-up for International Agency of the Year in 2009, by Marketing Magazine, which named us Agency of the Year in 2009, 2010 and 2011 and by Forbes, which rated us among the top 5 agencies in the world in 2011.
