It is meant to shame Coca Cola, one of the major sponsors of 2014 Winter Olympics in Russia where LGBTQ community is marginalized with the new “protect the children from homosexuality” law. Queer Nation is a direct action group dedicated to ending discrimination, violence and repression against the LGBT community. As such, the organization is […]
Did this opening video for a client. I used their existing assets and my collection of stock footages. They supplied the head shots to me and I sourced all other images.

Just when you think that bookstores are boring and as old as yesterday’s news, many retailers are bringing back joy and new experience to a “bookstore run.” It’s no longer just about books – it’s about the entire experience. Indigo Bookstore, a Canadian bookstore chain, has done a tremendous effort to keep customers in […]
Execution in North Korea. Bombing in Syria. Disasters around the world. We see and hear violence all of the world. I believe that a person isn’t born evil. He grow to be such. I don’t know what makes bad people bad. I know that homeless people all have poignant stories to tell. Criminals may have […]
Staying at Johnny Rockets earlier was either a customer services process fail or an outright discrimination? Whether we like it or not, service workers (and many others) judge customers by appearance; color of their skin, what they wear and the over all “energy” of the person. I was dress neat – Banana Republic jeans, Banana […]
I blogged about my gig as a voice over for a documentary on people who are deaf. Then critic disagreed with the method and told the film makers that having a voice over, me, was condescending. While I disagreed, I also knew what she was saying. We may have disagreed on what was the best […]
The subway in Toronto wasn’t working and I was forced to walk, pre-winter on Yonge. But instead of walking on Yonge I walked on the parallel streets behind the restaurants. What I found were fascinating, interesting and yet creepy unkept backsides of restaurants, shops and other businesses that are mostly spotless at the front. […]
Just a day in the life of a social media manager. I was behind the camera (mostly).
Many were not able to read the question inside the red dot. Typical challenge of typography-based design.
Yup, we all get it. Yup, we all know it. Marketing is all about positioning, location, pricing and service. Oh, the dread 4Ps. This applies to almost every piece of communication including posters. Posters provide information to our clients… about a sale item, about promotion or even about renovation. In this cheesy poster, Sherway Gardens […]
I talked about this before, life is a journey. Lately I find that I have been talking about life a lot instead of work. And I am passionate about work. Almost eight weeks have past and I’m still hurting. I won’t wish upon anyone. But what I wish for everyone is to realize that things […]
Posted just above the urinal. This could have been an ordinary boring sign but with a bit of sense of humour, the message is retained and the “call to action” is likely respected.
A guest was reading # at the names of children who died during the earthquake in China. The building collapsed and the government was denying the accident. It is part of Ai Wei Wei exhibit at The Art Gallery of Ontario.
It’s actually a good concept just not tastefully done. Well, to start with, downtown Toronto’s Hard Rock Cafe is HORRIBLE. I like the panels towards the back of the bus as they’ve used the space to have a larger than life, happy feeling. Towards the front though, which is a prime real estate, while has […]
When I saw the posts on Twitter and Facebook how aweful the song Friday (Rebecca Black’s video) was my first response was, “what’s wrong with it?” Because I liked it. A musician gave me a lengthy explanation of how bad the tune was and other technical details that didn’t matter to me. My response again […]
Cryptic post: It was a dark moment weeks ago. Dark moment I conquered. I listen to this song now with joy and less emotion.
Oh c’mmon. You’ve had your share of funny auto correct. What are they? Share them with me at twitter.com/jorgeleedotcom.
Guys…. I want to share this with you. My friend in LA has been battling cancer for years. She’s on her second SET (the cancer reappeared) of chemo. She has been staying with her live in partner for 8 years now. Things are uncertain. Their bills are piling up as not everything is covered by […]
Circa 1990, tell your friends that a skeleton drove by your drive thru and everyone would think you’re C-R-A-Z-Y. But now because almost 90% of people with cellphones (over 50% have smart phones), snapping a video evidence to prove your story is common. Watch the video below. Not only that it’s funny but it’s interesting […]
