Ji Lee lecture

2011/03 Ji Lee from CreativeMornings on Vimeo.

One of my first posts here on SUNfiltered back in the spring of 2009 (insert aphorism here about how time flies and holy father I’m getting old) was a spotlight on my design crush Ji Lee, then creative director at Google Labs until his recent move to Facebook as their first creative director. Ever since I first learned of him and his work years ago, his ability to channel his creativity into both personal projects and his soaring career has long been a source of inspiration for me. In the video above, Ji Lee gave a recent talk at Creative Mornings (a monthly series of short lectures) discussing how the pursuit of personal passions and interests can have a positive, unintentional consequence on one’s career. If you’re in a rut this is a must-watch video.
